L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer announced this morning that he is cracking down on on Nestdrop, the “Uber for weed” app that delivers medical marijuana to your door. At a press conference this morning, Feuer said the app violates Measure D, the city’s medical marijuana initiative, which limits delivery of medical pot to patients’ primary caregivers.
“There is no lawful delivery service under Prop. D,” Feuer said. “We’re hoping that a court agrees with us.”

Nestdrop began as an alcohol-delivery app. It started offering medical marijuana in L.A. about a month ago. It is just one of several medical marijuana delivery apps. The market leader is Speed Weed, which launched in 2012. Asked about Speed Weed, Feuer said other investigations are ongoing.
