Illegal Delivery in Washington DC Still Seems to be Lucrative

For the last few months, delivery services in Washington DC have been running underground businesses without any supervision. Many of these services seem to grow their own cannabis or get access to cannabis through unknown sources.

The laws are grey, but these businesses still seems to flourish. We tried contacting a couple services to see what type of laws they were abiding by (which we will leave the company names out for their safety):

A gentlemen named Randy, who worked for a local delivery service explained to us exactly what they were and weren’t able to do. Randy stated that the service was legal to anyone over the age of 21 as long as they were in the Washington DC area. Although selling cannabis of any type is illegal, we continued to allow him to explain why his business was still going to operate illegally. We tried asking if they would deliver to Virginia or Maryland but that question was quickly shut down. Randy stated that the best thing for us to do was to drive over to the border of DC/VA and they could meet us there. As the notes and conversation progressed it continually began to grow more and more fishy and unsafe to say the least.

Another question we asked was if a medical marijuana card was needed to make purchases. Randy stated that it was not and we could make purchases without the card. This made us decide not to move forward with the process and avoid any further conversation.

If you’re thinking about making a purchase from a delivery service please consider the laws in your local area and find out if the company is operating legally or not. You do not want to get caught in a situation you didn’t think you’d be in!

Right off the bat, I have to say that I was really impressed with the
packaging, presentation, and build quality for a disposable vaporizer.
Wildflower really cut no corners in designing this disposable pen; the
stainless steel casing gave the pen an immediate quality weight and feel
for me when I first held it in my hand.
