One of California’s biggest marijuana delivery services faces an uncertain future due to a possible class-action lawsuit.
A lawsuit was filed against San Francisco-based Eaze Solutions earlier this month, alleging that the cannabis delivery business violated federal law by sending out unsolicited text messages to their customers, reports Marijuana Business Daily.
Eaze has yet to respond to the suit, although a note on its website stating that recipients can opt out of marketing messages could possibly serve as protection from the law.
A court judgment could cost the company millions of dollars as the lawsuit estimates “tens of thousands” of other probable plaintiffs who received texts, although class-action status has not yet been granted.
“The TCPA has, particularly for smaller companies, bankrupted them,” said San Francisco attorney Tsan Abrahamson, an expert on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. “They have had to close their doors. So this is no joke.”
