WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) The pot-delivery business is booming in California. Using cars instead of dispensary counters, small marijuana startups have proliferated in recent years, serving a diverse customer base that includes homebound medical patients as well as people in communities where dispensaries are banned or few in number.

The evening’s first customer emerged sleepy-eyed from the doorway of his apartment near Sacramento State for his marijuana concentrates: 3 grams each of strawberry, banana and pear flavors. He had few words for the delivery driver who handed him a white bag containing the order. Their transaction lasted mere seconds.

“He was already medicated, I assume,” said driver Kody Kolstrup, 20, as he climbed back into the Toyota Prius owned by GramUp, an upstart Sacramento venture delivering marijuana buds, edibles and other cannabis products.

Along with fellow employee Amanda Campos, 18, Kolstrup readied the GPS for another stop: Richard Stein’s home in North Highlands.

A week earlier, Stein, 53, had sent an urgent text for marijuana. He was about to undergo a painful round of chemotherapy for multiple myeloma, a cancer attacking his bone marrow. A GramUp car rushed out with an eighth-ounce of a strain called Space Queen.

“I put a special note in their system — ‘In a large hurry. Need ASAP,’ ” said Stein, a former warehouse manager, after inviting Kolstrup and Campos into the living room of his mobile home, where they filled the same order again. “Bam! It was here in 15 minutes.”
