Fresh VC, 500 Startups, DCM Ventures and rapper Snoop Dogg’s Casa Verde Capital helped Eaze in raising more than $10 million in funding. ‘Young, Wild & Free’ star, Snoop Dogg, is a renowned weed aficionado. He is also a supporter of Eaze, which helps patients receive medical marijuana easily. The company connects medical marijuana patients with local dispensaries in many states. It operates in states where it is legal to sell the drug.
Keith McCarty, founder and chief executive officer of Eaze, stated that the company has planned to be in market as soon as possible so that people who need the drug could get it easily. While talking to Quartz, McCarty said that he has kept his eyes on Nevada, Arizona, Washington, Colorado, and Oregon.
McCarty further said, “It also signals that regulatory landscapes are loosening up, and venture capitalists see the broader market continuing in that direction. I wish I was more strategic – I think I just got lucky”.
While talking on an episode of Snoop Dogg’s GGN, he said that he had smoked a joint in the bathroom while visiting the Obamas. According to him, he told officials that he usually lit a cigarette after going to toilet.
Earlier, a writer of TechCrunch reported that Eaze’s service was in need of further refinement. The company delivered the drug at less than 15 minutes, which means that the speed of delivering a product was a strong USP.
According to reports, Eaze does not just provide the marijuana, but it delivers products at the doorstep of a consumer. Now, the famous rapper Snoop Dogg has invested in the company which works to provide marijuana on-demand to customers in the United States. The service of drug is available in more than 30 cities in the country.
