Cannabis has now become easier to access with new delivery app, 'Eaze.'
On June 7, Apple released several changes to its App Store Review Guidelines, clearing up existing policies, adding new specifications for app makers, and altering rules about what available apps for download can do, according to Apple Insider (AI).
Included in the changes was a loosening of restrictions regarding in-app purchases from a cannabis dispensary and licensed and legal pharmacies, AI reported.
One month after Apple released its new policies, 'Eaze' launched in the App Store--the first app in the U.S where consumers can purchase and get cannabis delivered directly to them.
"Eaze has always been about using the latest developments in technology to make shopping for legal cannabis more accessible," said Eaze CEO Rogelio Choy. "It's hard to overstate how important this is to our company and the industry."
The app utilizes geofencing to locate where purchases are made to ensure it's in areas where cannabis is legal. According to AI, consumers must be 21 years and older to purchase from the app and should be prepared to show several forms of identification throughout the purchase and delivery process.
The app currently only offers delivery services in California, with plans to expand to Michigan later this month, AI reported.
