1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
    PLEASE HELP

    … If you have a medicinal marijuana card and live in Washington State Say goodbye to those awkwardly composed texts to your friend’s friend’s friend (“Hey, do you by any chance …”), because two college students have come up with a solution — a marijuana-delivery app called Canary.

    But don’t get too excited. For now, Canary, founded by University of Washington students Josiah Tullis and Megh Vakharia, will allow only medical-marijuana card holders to place orders for their favorite strains of bud, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Thursday. Though marijuana possession in Washington State has been legal for those over 21 after voters passed Initiative 502 in 2012, the first licensed retailers have yet to open.

    The plan, though, is to one day begin delivering recreational marijuana.

    “The uncertainties are not in the technology; the technology has already been done before. The uncertainties are in the legality on the business side,” Tullis said.

    Tullis and Vakharia pitched the idea to a startup conference hosted by TechCrunch, where they were met with widespread support. Investors have expressed interest, and drivers from Uber and Lyft looking for delivery jobs are already interviewing.

    And what do their parents have to say about it? Vakharia’s mom told her, “Go ahead and pursue this business; just don’t partake in what you’re delivering.”

    Well, good thing they’ve already gotten into college.
