The legalization of cannabis is a social justice issue, and as more and more states are on board to legalize cannabis, it becomes more socially acceptable. We see the need for a technology platform to be built.
What it does
Allows users to connect on a P2P market place to buy and sell cannabis in states where its legal utilizing the blockchain. Acts as a social network for cannabis users to connect and smoke together.
How I built it
Utilizing Here Maps API to map out the network's landscape and Blockchain to handle financial transactions, we were able to develop a platform for cannabis users to connect.
Challenges I ran into
A few of the API's were slightly tricky to use, but we were able to overcome these obstacles!
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
