For the first time in history, the food delivery app, Uber Eats has joined hands with local suppliers in Toronto, Canada, to deliver Marijuana to locals starting on Monday.
Leafly, which is a start-up, is the official partner for the delivery.
The store is an online-based marijuana marketplace. It is located in Seattle which is about 160 km south of the Canadian border.
They say the partnership will help combat the illegal underground market which they say makes up more than 50 per cent of non-medical marijuana sales.
Delivery is limited to adults aged 19 years and above.
However, they can only possess up to 30 gms of legal cannabis.
The ordering process works just like a food order, but the marijuana is only delivered by the government and the retailer’s certified staff and not just any other Uber Eats driver.
The staff has to verify the age and sobriety of the customer upon arrival.
On October 17, 2018, cannabis was legalized in Canada for recreational and medical purposes. It was already legal for medicinal purposes, under certain conditions.
