Domino Pot.

Will that be cash, credit or debit card.
I loved the headline, and the article even more.

Do they promise to deliver in thirty minutes of less.
Drugs are the free market in action. Which makes drug dealers free marketeers.

Pot buying goes corporate

NEW YORK — In a city where you can get just about anything delivered to your door — groceries, dry cleaning, Chinese food — pot smokers are increasingly ordering takeout marijuana from drug rings that operate with remarkable corporate-style attention to customer satisfaction.

An untold number of otherwise law-abiding professionals in New York are having their pot delivered to their homes instead of visiting drug dens or hanging out on street corners.

But experts say home delivery has been growing in popularity, thanks to a shrewder, corporate style of dealing designed to put customers at ease and avoid the messy turf wars associated with other drugs.

“It's certainly been the trend in the past 10 years in urban areas that are becoming gentrified,” said Ric Curtis, an anthropology professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice who specializes in the drug culture.

The corporate model — and its profit potential — were demonstrated late last year when the Drug Enforcement Administration announced that it had taken down a highly sophisticated organization dubbed the Cartoon Network. DEA agents arrested 12 people after using wiretaps and surveillance and making undercover buys. The operation's alleged mastermind, John Nebel, “should have been the CEO of a Fortune 500 company,” said his lawyer, Steve Zissou.
