U Washington students start 'Uber for marijuana' delivery service


Two students at the University of Washington in Seattle are starting a business that they describe as "Uber for marijuana."

Josiah Tullis and Megh Vakharia are planning to launch a phone app called "Canary" in Seattle late next month.

"Canary is an on-demand service that allows you to get cannabis delivered right to your doorstep," Vakharia said in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Medical-marijuana cardholders will be able to select different strains of pot from different medical dispensaries and then have their order delivered by a cardholding driver.

Users can buy in quantities ranging from a gram to an ounce.
