From FOX 11 Los Angeles:
Food delivery app Uber Eats and Leafly have joined forces with local suppliers to offer cannabis delivery in Toronto starting Monday.
The companies say it’s the first time cannabis delivery will be offered on a major third-party delivery platform.
Customers 19 years and older can place the order through the Uber Eats app, where it will be directed to one of three local cannabis retailers: Hidden Leaf, Minerva or Shivaa’s Rose. The delivery will be made by a government-certified employee who will verify the age and sobriety of the customer upon arrival.
In addition to keeping impaired drivers off the roads, Leafly and Uber Eats say the new delivery service will help combat the illegal underground market, which they say makes up more than 50% of nonmedical cannabis sales in Ontario.
