One DoorDash customer received more than he bargained for when he placed an order for food—he found an unwanted bag of weed in his order, and decided to file a complaint about it. The driver’s actions led to the termination of his employment as Dasher with the company.
A man in Columbus, Ohio, who asked not to be identified, said he ordered food through DoorDash on August 9, and complained that the bag of herbs made him feel “intimidated.”
“I was scared at first but then again, I wasn’t too surprised,” this guy who ordered food from DoorDash Tell ABC 6.
He provided a picture of his lunch bag where he found a fork and a bag full of cannabis. The photo shows a bag decorated with strange heads holding what appears to be about a gram of hashish. “Did this start with the driver?” He said. “Or did this start at the restaurant you ordered this from?”
“It’s scary,” said the customer, “because I’m a healthcare worker, and I see how it affects people every day.” “I even have a close friend whose nephew actually died from smoking some fentanyl-laced marijuana.” (Both and extends And the snobs They rejected the allegations of fentanyl-coated pot and Dr. Peter Grinspoon Tell High Times It is likely that fentanyl disintegrates by the heat of the flame.)
“What happened is unacceptable, and we have removed Dasher from our platform,” DoorDash representative Tell ABC6 and FOX28 in a statement. We appreciate the customer for reporting the incident.”
“I’m thinking of the children,” he said. “I have a nephew. I think of my co-worker. He has granddaughters and grandchildren.”
DoorDash responded quickly and informed the customer that Dasher had been terminated. A customer email from DoorDash reads: “We do not condone this type of action and have therefore taken the step to remove it from our platform.” “This Dasher will not be able to deliver future orders on DoorDash anymore.”

Four years ago, at the 2018 Fortune’s Brainstorm Tech conference, DoorDash CEO Tony Shaw said that while the company was toying with the idea of cannabis delivery, there were no immediate plans to do so, at least not in the United States.
“This is our attorney general’s favorite question,” Xu He said. “It is not what we do today nor what we plan to do. There are a lot of complications around payment when it comes to something with this level of regulation.”
Since then, however, the company has explored the cannabis industry in Canada, where it is considered legal at the federal level. Deliveries, however, are not yet part of the equation.
