Whatever your reason for not wanting to leave the house in order to purchase marijuana, a new delivery app may be your saving grace. Launched this summer, a San Francisco start-up dubbed the “Uber for Pot” has drivers cruising the city and looking to ease the pain of scoring weed.

The Eaze app uses a location-based service to connect buyers with Eaze drivers in the area, each carrying a variety of the same strains as furnished by dispensaries. As the San Francisco Chronicle‘s marijuana blog “Smell the Truth” reported, users can verify their prescribed patient status on the Eaze website, access the service via the site or the smartphone app to select a strain and quantity, and simply click “Request Delivery.”

“When I told my parents about my idea for Eaze, they accused me of becoming a glorified drug dealer,” founder Keith McCarty told TechCrunch. The Yammer sales director explained that the app aims to bring convenience to medical marijuana patients, many of whom may be suffering from limited mobility. He was also motivated to start the company, he added, because of a marijuana strain called “Charlotte’s Web,” used to treat epilepsy in children. He continues,

Medical marijuana can be used to treat health conditions. These are real people with real medical conditions that need this medicine, and it has been really exciting and gratifying to talk with them, and know that we’re doing something to help.
