cannabis express is packing up a delivery bag full of pot products headed out the door.....the order came in online.....and after it's checked and double checked....the package is popped in a lock box in the back of a company prius....and driven from their soma location across town to their waiting customer.mr. simmons how are you, very good here's your cannabisdavid simmons is given his pot purchases....and after his i-d is checked and his wad of cash taken.....have a nice day.....he is free to unpack his goodie bag in the privacy of his own home. simmons, who says he uses cannabis to help him sleep and to help ease his pain from an old injury. ...has been using this delivery service for about 6 months.i think it's a terrific service i don't always have time to make it to a dispensary or the store so that convenience is extraordinarycannabis express is one of many licensed delivery services happy about the bureau of cannabis
9:34 am
control's new regulation....si nce many cities and counties surrounding their hub have some sort of ban on commericial pot ban in place. we love being able to bring cannabis to everyone that needs it as well as people who are not able to come to a store front dispensary and we can actually facilitate a delivery to their house if they're not able for whatever reason, terminally ill no car, family usually gets it we can facilitate those deliveriesbut not everyone is happy with the state's position on free range pot delivery. the california police chief's association has come out against it and so has the league of california cities. in a statement their executive director said"this decision puts the public safety needs of communities across the state at risk." green rush...which provides the online sales platform for cannabis express and dozens of other weed delivery companies believes an increase more legit doorstep pot transactions....will actually make california communities
9:35 am
safer....since complaint companies have to follow state rules....such as prohibiting deliveries after 10pm.suburbs by and large have banded cannabis retail and, meaning, those votes are still purchasing cannabis, they're not driving 50 miles there closest dispensary, they're looking on the directory they are finding an unlicensed delivery service, they're purchasing from that service and their ruling the dice the safety of the products themselves, their own safety in receiving a deliverygreen rush estimates there are several hundred thousand licensed cannabis delivery is happening every month in california i can but at the same time it's believed over 1 million cannabis deliveries are appening state widebut while cannabis express is expecting this ruling will mean more deliveries for them to pack and deliver.....i'm glad to have clarity to be honestit's still an open questiona cannabis business attorney says municipalities miffed about mobile marijuana sales....could end up taking the state or the cannabis delivery companies to court. it's an interesting legal question because of the state
9:36 am
level regulation that seems to conflict with a local level law so the issue a preemption in which one trumps the other is not 100% clear in this situation, especially since they're so seemingly on their faces contradictoryso while companies like cannabis express feel like the state has given them a roadmap to success ....it's possible a future legal challenge could jam them up. maureen kelly kron4 news. ( darya )(ááá2 shotááá) in this morning's hidden history, we introduce you to john "big daddy" bishop and his world famous bbq in birmingham, alabama. ( james ) here's leigh garner with the story. (nats of grilling ribs)"and it was just scrumptous." it's hard to stay hidden -- when your ribs are the stuff of legend.(nat) "this is mister bishop, and this is my father." but the history behind
9:37 am
dreamland barbeque is a little more mysterious --"now i can't tell you all of our tricks!" just like some of their recipes."you know legend has it there's a little moonshine in it, i can neither confirm or deny!" but just like the restaurant's famous motto goes...(nat from commercial) "ain't nothin' like um nowhere." there almost really áwasn'tá anything like them...anywhere. because former brick mason and founder 'big daddy' john bishop was contemplating opening a mortuary instead. but as the story goes -- his decision was made thanks to a dream. "better than a mortuary, and we are so thankful that he made that decision." so in 19-58, the same year the bear started coaching at bama, bishop opened his hillside cafe in the jerusalem heights community in tuscaloosa. at that time - they served all kinds of things - and even sold postage."but at the end of the day, he always ran out of ribs, and he had these other items leftover, so like a true entrepreneur, he skinned his menu down to just be ribs and that was how it all began." in the 19-70-s sports announcers would talk
