Imagine our surprise when we received an email with the subject, Uber for Weed Enters Zimbawe. We opened the email thinking this was an elaborate prank but after digging around on Jugnoo we realised it is a legitimate company. It appears the legalization of mbanje, aka weed, aka mary jane, aka marijuana, aka cannabis, aka ganja will continue to capture headlines.

Below is the press release they sent us:

The pot market is poised to get much more exciting as mbanje production becomes legal in Zimbabwe. Jugnoo, India’s largest on-demand service provider forays in Zimbabwe’s weed rush with the launch of complete technology suite for Cannabis online ordering & delivery business powered by Jungleworks on 8th May 2018.
