Want a bag of pot delivered to your house in 10 minutes? Well, now there's an app for that.

Eaze, the brainchild of Keith McCarty, formerly of Yammer, is a mobile app that allows medical marijuana patients in California to get their pot delivered directly to their door.

Now, McCarty is courting investors to fund his start-up that is operating out of his apartment in the Marina neighborhood of San Francisco.

"It's been self-funded by me up until now, but with a successful launch we are obviously looking to expand very quickly into other cities, so we are seeking funding right now," he said. "This week is littered with other investor meetings so we are hoping to close a round soon."

McCarty says the sky is the limit. While he's starting Eaze in California, he wants to quickly bring the business to other markets, where he believes it can gain traction.

"We plan to go to Southern California and then into other states that allow for medical marijuana," he said, adding that the business needs volume to achieve scale.
