In the final drafts of California’s cannabis business regulations, regulators approved statewide marijuana deliveries, even in areas that ban cannabis.

The rules will not be completely finalized until approved by the Office of Administrative Law (OAL), which may not be until sometime in January.

Many believe statewide delivery – one of the most debated issues involving California’s marijuana industry – will boost sales by allowing licensed retailers and delivery businesses to reach consumers in municipalities that prohibit commercial cannabis sales.
