3 delivery services that offer marijuana as a free gift

Three pot delivery services in D.C. are circumventing the illegality of selling weed by peddling other products instead – and including cannabis as a free gift.

Here's a breakdown on how it works, what you get, and whether the item(s) you ostensibly are buying are actually any good or simply a ruse to get you to buy the weed.

Red Eye Delivery

  • What You’re Buying: Chocolate chip, Nutella, or peanut butter cookies ($60).
  • The Cannabis You’re Getting: Customers list their preferences in the special instructions box when they order, but what strain they receive is based on availability.
  • The Hours: Sundays through Thursdays 10 a.m. – 10 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays 10 a.m. – 1 a.m.
  • How Long it Takes: The company aims to make your delivery within an hour, but traffic, weather or high sales volume can extend that timeline.
  • Take Note: There is no weed in the cookies, which frankly aren’t that good.

Paper Boys

  • Legal Purchase: Rolling papers ($4-$25).
  • Cannabis: There’s a pull down menu where customers ostensibly tell the service about themselves, but are actually choosing a strain. Last time we checked, they were offering Platinum OG – an indica dominant hybrid – and Gorilla Glue #4, a potent indica-sativa hybrid.
  • Hours: Mondays through Thursdays 12 – 8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays 12 – 10 p.m., Sundays 12 – 6 p.m.
  • How Long it Takes: Customers can choose to have their order delivered ASAP – usually within an hour – or they can set a two-hour delivery window for later in the day.
  • Take Note: The company will happily ship rolling papers to out-of-state buyers, but popping pot in the post is verboten.

Wake and Bake

  • Legal Purchase: Single origin coffee ($20) or natural incense ($20).
  • Cannabis: Customers make a donation – tall ($55), grande ($110), venti ($200), or trenta ($375) – and list their strain preference when ordering.
  • Hours: Open daily 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
  • How Long it Takes: Within 24 hours or you can set a delivery time.
  • Take Note: You must sign up (which includes submitting an email address) and be approved by a site administrator before you can make any purchases.
