Marijuana delivery isn't new to the Bay Area, but with a November ballot measure promising to decriminalize the business, it is becoming more legitimate.

As always, at the forefront are medical marijuana dispensaries like San Francisco's Green Cross, which will deliver from buds to brownies and everything in between to club members.

You'll have to prove that you have a doctor's recommendation, and you'll have to have a credit card -- Green Cross doesn't take cash.

That's because it's just not safe for a pot delivery guy with hundreds of dollars in product or cash.

Kevin Reed, owner of the Green Cross, says customers should be wary, as well -- and to check online reviews or make sure the business is registered with the state -- so you don't get a bad deal.

Heck, Reed's business even has a Twitter account.

As for decriminalization and new taxes if the ballot measure passes? Reed tells the East Bay Express that it's not necessarily a great fit for his business.
