He does not use Cannabis

Keith Did not have too Much information about Marijuana when he Started Eaze

While starting out, McCarty’s biggest fear was not whether the company would be a success. He did not have too much knowledge about cannabis. He only saw an opportunity in the industry and decided to run with it. Keith was motivated by the fact that a majority of Americans favor legalization and that it is among the fastest growing in the globe.

He Believes Marijuana Saves People

With little knowledge about the medical benefits of marijuana, Keith decided to do intensive research as it was the base of this entity. He uncovered “miraculous” stories of how marijuana saves people. It further encouraged him to make its delivery more efficient to the individuals who need it so that it can function effectively. He also aims at reducing the stigma that surrounds the drug.

His Parents Called his Firm a Glorified Drug Dealing Service

Keith Seeks to Define Regulatory Landscape

McCarty does not only want to make delivery and education of marijuana efficient. He also wants to define regulatory landscape citing that when it is not done correctly, it will lead to adverse effects. Keith thinks that if it is unrestricted or too restricted, it opens up doors for the black market a direction that is not ideal. Keith thinks technology can help regulators understand the industry which in turn helps create appropriate regulations.

Plans on Future Cannabis Delivery

Presently, customers associate the on demand nature of Eaze to the likes of Uber.  It is despite the fact that the firm is not responsible for making the products or hiring the drivers who deliver the product. All it does is connect buyers to the dispensaries so that they can receive their cannabis conveniently at their homes or office. Keith says that possibilities are endless when it comes to the delivery services.  McCarty is proud of the progress the company has made saying that it is at an excellent place from a tech perspective implying that the organization can expand within no time.
