C., have gone a step further and legalized pot for recreational use. According to that's the forecasted sales revenue of America's legal marijuana business within just three years.And the only people happier than stoners are stone-cold capitalists. Welcome to the "green rush," as it's been dubbed.
A scruffy dispatcher takes an order over the phone and watches his drivers, car-shaped dots on a computer screen.
A waiting delivery guy does halfhearted pullups from a bar hung in a doorway; another employee packs weed into white paper bags. No, he's just bitching about getting stiffed on a tip like some righteous Domino's driver. Second guy has a $170 order, and he tells me, ‘Hey man, enjoy your Friday, have a nice day, man.' Fuck!
Forty-year-old Gino, with his scruffy beard and Lawn Guyland accent, helps run Speed Weed, the biggest marijuana-delivery service in Los Angeles and, according to Gino, the biggest in the entire United States.
He, his brother, AJ, and AJ's girlfriend, Jen, launched the company in 2011, and since then Gino's life has changed in amazing ways.
Another perk: Since Gino's begun slinging weed, he's become pals with most of the L. porn industry—even dating a porn star, 28-year-old Sabrina Maree. AJ, the brains of the operation, calls Gino a brand ambassador, which mostly means that Gino spends his days delivering "medicine" to his famous and quasi-famous "patients," often partaking with them after hours.
