Vireo Health, one of the five licensed medical marijuana companies in New York, rolled out home delivery for its patients late last week, reportedly the second in the state to do so.

Vireo, which first obtained permission from the state in January to deliver medical cannabis instead of requiring patients to pick up purchases at storefront dispensaries, has launched its service by offering deliveries in the boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn, as well as in Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island, the New York Business Journal reported.

Deliveries will then expand to Westchester, the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island, TV station WNBC reported.

According to the Business Journal, Columbia Care began MMJ deliveries to patients in upstate New York last month, making it the first in the state to launch a delivery service.
