Recreational marijuana home delivery kicks off in Oregon

(Correction: An earlier version of this report misidentified the source TV station.)

Oregon’s recreational marijuana businesses are leading the way in the U.S. rec industry with a new service: delivery of adult-use cannabis to a customer’s home.

According to Portland TV station KGW, rec marijuana customers can now order from licensed dealers and have product delivered to their home.

Legal deliveries of adult-use cannabis are a new phenomenon. Medical cannabis deliveries, by contrast, are permitted in certain places in the United States.

Oregon’s Liquor Control Commission has issued delivery permits to 117 retailers across the state, with 13 in Portland. The commission delayed the launch of delivery services until last month.

According to WCSH, rules for delivery include:

  • Cannabis businesses can only deliver to residents in the city they’re licensed in.
  • Cannabis must be transported in a safe and secured to the delivery vehicle.
  • The vehicle can carry no more than $3,000 worth of cannabis.
  • Businesses can’t deliver to certain location, including motels, campgrounds or dorms.
  • Delivery customers must be at least 21.
  • Customers must sign for deliveries.
  • Deliveries can be made only between the hours of 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.

Delivery services may be located near a marijuana store.

    Good Luck to Oregon.

    Up here across the mighty Columbia, due to regs from the alcoholics, you can only smoke in your private bathrooms as long as the exhaust fan is off. We have laws you can’t disturb neighbors’ senses. Parks, any other publicly owned properties, motels and hotels, car, truck, and on and on. Good luck with your regulators. Hope some will get to Canada’s standards, someday. Oh yeah, in WA, first place by five days to legalized rec gage, you still have to Bogart, no sharing.

    I was there – many years ago – many miles away but in the same groove – so I know what, but do you know what inspired some mid-1960’s toker to originally say, “don’t Bogart that joint?”
