(Katie Falkenberg / Los Angeles Times) Alternative Medicine Laws and Legislation Business Pot delivery services have nearly tripled in three years nationwide Many delivery services consist of nothing more than a lone driver carrying a tackle box filled with pot California medical marijuana laws don’t mention delivery services Brian Reichle couldn’t have gotten a pepperoni pizza much faster. Needing to replenish his stash of pot one recent afternoon, the Burbank resident dialed Speed Weed. Within the hour, a driver arrived with a white paper bag carrying a gram of cannabis, 10 joints and a handful of pot-infused candies and cookies. “They come to my house, and they’re in and out,” said Reichle, 39, a comedian who spends about $100 a week on medical marijuana. “I shouldn’t have to go to a store.” Once a small, word-of-mouth phenomenon, mobile marijuana businesses now number in the hundreds across Southern California. Nationwide, pot delivery services have nearly tripled in three years, from 877 to 2,617, according to Weedmaps, a Yelp-like online directory for pot businesses.
