Alcohol delivery, turned weed delivery startup Nestdrop is back in operations after a clash with L.A. city attorney Mike Feuer. The dispute was about the non compliance to Resolution D., which regulates how cannabis startups operate.
Nestdrop co-founder Michael Pycher however claimes that his company is fully compliant with the regulation, as they are not a cannabis startup, rather a company that provides delivery services to patients that are unable to reach dispensaries. Pycher claims that this move is more of a PR stunt from the city attorney, and has prepared for battle by setting up a crowdfunding campaign to help him cover legal fees.
It is unclear how this situation will unfold, but one thing is sure, there are very fine lines when it comes to the interpretation of laws that regulate cannabis startups, and both sides have plenty incentive to carry on. For now, however, Nestdrop lives another day.
So, if you are looking to enter the race to be the next Uber for weed in the L.A. area, it looks like Proposition D. will become your main source of headaches. You can find the entire Proposition here.
