Legal cannabis customers in Oregon can now order deliveries from recreational dispensaries under a plan adopted by the state Liquor Control Commission, WwKYCreports. The agency has approved 117 retailer delivery permits across the state, including 13 in Portland.
The regulations allow licensed dispensaries to deliver only within the city they are licensed in, requiring the products to be transported in a locked box secured to the delivery vehicle, which can carry no more than $3,000 worth of product at one time. Cannabis can only be delivered between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. to residential homes, and not to places like dorms, hotels, or campgrounds. Customers must provide proof of age and sign for the delivery.
According to OLCC Spokesman Mark Pettinger the plan had to be postponed until this month so the agency could set up the appropriate infrastructure.
“We needed to make an adaptation to the cannabis tracking system to provide a document that would actually allow for the delivery of recreational marijuana to homes,” he said in the report.
Spencer Krutzler, manager of Portland’s La Cannaisseur, said that since launching the service the company has only had a few online orders so far.
