[su_right_ad]A Los Angeles judge says a smartphone app violates the city’s ban on marijuana delivery businesses.

The lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court marked the first time that local authorities have targeted a medical marijuana delivery app, a service that prosecutors argue is prohibited under the 2013 measure. opular farmers’ market for medical marijuana.

On Tuesday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert O’Brien granted the city’s request for a preliminary injunction blocking the use of Nestdrop to arrange for medical marijuana deliveries in Los Angeles, and ordered it to remove any reference to such deliveries from the app, Feuer’s office said in a statement.

Feuer’s office estimates that since the prosecutor took office last year he has closed more than 400 medical marijuana dispensaries, which represents half the number of such businesses officials believe to be operating in Los Angles.

He also forced the closure of a popular farmers’ market for medical marijuana.[su_csky_ad]

        It is illegal to transport it for a fee. The app was more than a scheduling service. Users could select varieties and pay for their purchase, so the app was an online store with delivery.
