Marijuana Delivery App ‘Nestdrop’ Cannot Operate in L.A., Says Judge

The medical marijuana and alcohol delivery app Nestdrop can no longer make deliveries of marijuana in the city of Los Angeles, an L.A. County Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday.

Judge Robert O’Brien granted a preliminary injunction against the company, siding with Los Angeles City attorney Mike Feuer, who had argued earlier this month that the app was in violation of Proposition D, a 2013 measure aimed at limiting the number of marijuana dispensaries in the city.

Nestdrop co-founder Michael Pycher told the Los Angeles Times the company plans to appeal the decision, and its alcohol delivery service remains unaffected. “We don’t believe that they truly understand what Nestdrop is,” Pycher told the paper. “We’re simply a communication technology.”

Los Angeles City attorney Mike Feuer disagreed, arguing that under Proposition D, marijuana delivery is “simply not permitted.”

“Prop. D explicitly prohibits delivery service,” attorney Aaron Lachant told the Times. “Nestdrop was basically facilitating violations of Prop. D.”

Pycher told the paper his company has not been deterred by the injunction. Nestdrop is reportedly conducting beta testing in San Francisco and also has plans to expand to Oakland and San Jose. And while Nestdrop got caught in the legal crosshairs, plenty of other marijuana delivery apps, like Eaze and Canary, are still going strong, although Feuer warned in the report that his office has “other investigations” in progress.
