Submission + - Medical Marijuana Delivered by Flying Drones: QuiQui Launches San Francisco Pres (ibtimes.co.uk)

concertina226 writes: QuiQui (pronounced Kwi-Key) operates 24 hours-a-day and users only need to pay for the cost of their medication, plus a $1 (60p) delivery charge.

"We can't ring the bell, but we'll meet you outside," says the company's website, which explains that it has decided to launch the drone service in the Mission district of San Francisco as the lack of tall buildings and generally flat landscape makes it much easier for the flying drones to get around.

The company is working with local pharmacies in San Francisco to deliver your prescriptions and says it chose pharmacy items because they're typically very small and easy to transport. Carrying larger items would not be commercially viable it says.
