A Seattle company is pushing the legality of the state’s marijuana laws by delivering pot to custome

Legalization
VOICEOVER:
Nats: “Yes, this is Jackrabbit with Winterlife calling to confirm delivery.”
WILLIAM TODD LARGE… GOES BY THE HANDLE, JACKRABBIT.
MAKING SPECIAL DELIVERIES TO ALMOST ANYWHERE IN SEATTLE.
TRANSACTIONS GOING DOWN IN THE FRONT SEAT OF HIS CAR.
NATS: “The kind of high we’re looking for is the giggly fun.”
AFTER A CONSULTATION WITH JACKRABBIT… KENDRA DAVIS WHO’S VISITING FROM MINNESOTA PURCHASES $125 WORTH OF POT PRODUCTS.
SOUNDBITE (English): Kendra Davis, Minnesota resident and Winterlife customer:
“I’ve smoked at home before. I like the fact that it’s not illegal here to smoke. That bothers me at home. So I figured while I’m here I might as well partake where it’s legal.”
NATS Giving high-fives
EVEN THOUGH WASHINGTON STATE LEGALIZED MARIJUANA IN 2012.. AND ALLOWED THE FIRST RETAILERS TO OPEN THEIR DOORS THIS MONTH….
SEATTLE POLICE SAY THIS TYPE OF DELIVERY SERVICE IS FAR FROM LEGAL.
SOUNDBITE: Sgt. Sean Whitcomb, Seattle Police Department:
“Every time they do a delivery they commit a felony.”
POT DELIVERY COMPANIES WHICH HAVE SPRUNG UP IN WASHINGTON AND COLORADO, THE TWO STATES THAT ALLOW RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA, KNOW THEY’RE PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES.
SOUNDBITE: Evan Cox, owner of Winterlife:
“We went and saw an attorney, he basically told us how we could best try and adhere to the current law in a way that would make us defensible.”
MARIJUANA ADVOCATES SAY STATE OFFICIALS SHOULD CONSIDER CHANGING IT’S LAW TO INCLUDE
LEGAL DELIVERIES.
MEANTIME… AS JACKRABBIT RAKES IN SALES FOR WINTERLIFE… POLICE SAY THEY HAVE BIGGER PRIORITIES IN THE CITY BUT THEY ARE KEEPING
AN EYE ON A GROWING INDUSTRY.
