iToke

iToke - Just place an order through any WAP enabled device and the folks at iToke will deliver you all the marijuana you want. And in less than a half hour guaranteed! Sorry. Amsterdam only. The way the sites designed you'de think they had a secret alliance with Apple.

Want to learn WAP (wireless application protocol) without buying a $300 PCS phone and paying for airtime? WinWAP is a free WAP-capable browser that runs on win9x/NT and allows you to see pages built for cell phones.
