The Native Roots Dandelion medical marijuana dispensary is the first in Colorado to be allowed to deliver medical marijuana under a new state law, regulators said.

The state Marijuana Enforcement Division granted the delivery permit to the dispensary in Boulder, Colorado.

The dispensary can deliver products only within the city of Boulder because local municipalities must approve MMJ deliveries within their borders.

Marijuana delivery activity has surged in many states because of the coronavirus threat. So far, Boulder and nearby Superior are the only communities in Colorado to allow MMJ deliveries.

“We are hopeful others will follow their lead and opt-in to medical delivery as soon as possible,” Shannon Fender, spokeswoman for Native Roots, said in a statement.

Native Roots is one of Colorado’s largest marijuana operators.
