Marijuana Home Delivery 大麻能快遞?

大麻你到底要鬧哪樣?

The Los Angeles city attorney in the U.S. has filed a lawsuit to shut down a mobile phone application that arranges medical marijuana home deliveries.


The suit alleges that the iPhone and Android free app, Nestdrop, is a "flagrant attempt" to bypass restrictions contained in Proposition D, the medical marijuana law approved by Los Angeles voters last year.


Nestdrop links customers with delivery services. It started as an alcoholic beverage delivery service but added marijuana in November, promising arrival within an hour.


Pot delivery is currently only available in Los Angeles, but the company has said it wants to expand throughout Southern California.




語言點與詞彙

city attorney

n. 市檢查官,市檢察院


file a lawsuit

v. 提起訴訟


marijuana

n. 大麻 大麻在美國境內是否該合法化是爭論已久的問題,目前在加州(即洛杉磯所在的州)大麻依舊非法。


flagrant

adj. 明目張膽的,用來形容無恥的行為 該詞和fragrant(芳香的,令人愉悅的)長得很像,意思卻截然相反,要注意區分。

例句:

Their behavior is a flagrant violation of the law. We should never condone it.

(他們的行為公然無視法律。我們決不能姑息。)

I love this shampoo. It always keeps my hair fresh and fragrant.

(我可喜歡這款洗髮水了。它總能讓我的頭髮保持清新、芳香。)


bypass

v. 繞開,逃避


pot

n. marijuana的別稱,口語堻戔`見的用來代替marijuana的單詞,跟動詞smoke搭配,指吸食大麻,引申義泛指神志不清的狀態(像吸高了大麻一樣)。

例句:You want a 500 percent pay raise? Are you smoking pot?

(你想漲五倍工資?你神志不清啊?)
