Washington Considers Legalizing Medical Marijuana Delivery Services

April 17, 2018

 

Good news for medical marijuana patients in Washington - you may soon be able to place an order for delivery to your door.

 

With Washington medical marijuana qualifying conditions including ailments like intractable pain and more, delivery would make things easier for patients struggling to access their medicine.

 

“It is a way to eliminate one of the barriers between people who need this for their medical condition and their ability to get it,” said Rep. Shelley Kloba.

 

According to HeraldNet, "the state Liquor and Cannabis Board is conducting a study on how to set up and operate a delivery system with an eye to ensuring pot doesn’t wind up in the wrong hands."

 

Not the Only State

 

If Washington were to make medical marijuana delivery services legal, it would join neighboring Oregon, as well as nearby California and Nevada

 

Oregon was the first to kick off marijuana home delivery in February 2017, after delivery permits were granted to 117 retailers across Oregon by The Oregon Liquor Control Commission. 

 

Since then, the benefits have been shared by consumers as well as retailers. Since delivery began in early 2017, shops in Eugene and Springfield alone have sold over $230,000 worth of marijuana products via delivery as of March 22nd, out of the statewide total of $1,113,805, according to OLCC data.

 

Conclusion

 

Higher marijuana sales lead to higher tax revenues for the state too, so it sounds like a win-win!
