Sidecar Starts Marijuana Delivery Service in San Francisco

While Uber expands into areas like food delivery, rideshare competior Sidecar is exploring a greener business.

Sidecar's new partnership with the Meadow delivery service means that registered patients can receive herbal relief from San Francisco medical marijuana dispensary The Apothecarium at their door.

San Francisco is quickly becoming a testing ground for on-demand medical marijuana delivery services. Last month, a local startup called Eaze closed a $10 million round of funding.

Meadow's co-founder and CEO Sunil Paul told Buzzfeed that the drivers as well as the customers must be a registered medical marijuana patient, which makes sense on a procurement level, but he did not express a stance on drivers who actually partake.
