Massachusetts gets a nearly statewide MMJ delivery service

In Good Health – a medical marijuana dispensary located in Brockton, south of Boston – said it will launch a next-day home delivery service for patients that will cover most of Massachusetts.

The dispensary would become the first in Massachusetts to provide delivery to such a broad geographic area, according to The Boston Globe. The service is set to begin Monday.

In Good Health plans to deliver marijuana buds, edibles and oils to patients anywhere in Massachusetts except the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

While In Good Health may have the widest-reaching delivery service, the title of “first” delivery service goes to Patriot Care, which has two dispensaries, both in eastern Massachusetts – one in Boston and the other in Lowell. Patriot Care offers delivery only to a small number of nearby towns.

In Good Health’s patients will be able to place orders through the dispensary’s website for delivery the following day. They will be able to pay upon receipt using a debit card.

Local deliveries will cost $30. But deliveries to Boston will cost $50 and those to Cape Cod, $75, The Globe reported.

To guard against robberies, delivery vehicles will be unmarked and staffed by two uniformed workers. The vehicles will be fitted with video surveillance. Products will come in tamper-resistant packaging.
