This Pot Delivery Startup Wants To Deliver Weed With Drones

San Francisco-based startup Trees Delivery , which brands itself as “the original craft cannabis box,” is attempting to bring its subscription pot box to a higher level by enlisting the help of drones for its delivery service. “We see drones as an amazing tool for delivery. A drone will never be late,” CEO Marshall Hayner tells Mashable.

Unlike most goods, weed is extremely lightweight. A single ounce of marijuana is a lot of weed, far more than one person can should consume in a week’s time. So it sort of makes sense that it would be a good product for drone delivery. But then there’s the safety issue: If a bunch of drones are flying around San Francisco with weed in them, it’s only a matter of time before they start getting knocked out of the sky. People robbing drug dealers of their product is nothing new, and we doubt that will change, especially in a state where marijuana isn’t even legal for recreational consumption. At the moment, Trees Delivery’s drone program seems more like a tech-stoner dream than one that will actually come true anytime soon.
