Michigan approves licenses for the state's first cannabis delivery services
Michigan has just approved the first licenses for home delivery for cannabis. If you’re near one of the provisioning centers in Detroit or Portage, and need medical marijuana delivered, you’re in luck. Before you get Grubhub on the line for a food delivery to go with your weed, though, not so fast. Michigan’s home delivery is still medical marijuana only, there’s a daily limit of just 2.5 ounces of flower, and most limiting, home delivery is only allowed where medical marijuana sales have been banned. Don’t get us wrong — it’s great that medical patients in Michigan can still get the drugs they need, but it’s not exactly a free for all just yet.
Still, this seems like a great solution for patients who need the drug, and as the licensed delivery operators say, if nothing else this is a legal solution to something illegal dealers there are already doing via websites like Weedmaps. Delivery is happening in Michigan because the governor took licensing away from a licensing board and transferred to a new group called the Marijuana Regulatory Agency. So even if this solution isn’t perfect, it’s progress, and hopefully it will continue forward in the future. Someday, of course, we dream of a day where all Michiganians can get their cannabis like they get their pizza: From a nice delivery man or woman at the door.
