When medical cannabis became legal, numerous companies had free statewide delivery

I was fortunate to get into our state’s medical marijuana database within weeks of the bill getting enacted into law.

  • Most were not so fortunate, with several facing month long delays from failing to reach the state office by iPhone or email plus not getting any responses back.

But that was not the only hurdle in the start. You had to find a prescribing physician plus there were only a handful that had taken the training plus got the approval in the short phase of time it took me to get our initial application approved by the state. Then there was a mandatory 90 afternoon wait phase before you could buy your cannabis, but that was lifted shortly thereafter. When I finally got our dentist recommendation filed through the state, there were a few dispensaries open but none within driving distance. Fortunately, most of the existing companies at the time were offering free statewide delivery. It meant that even if one supplier in question was 200 miles away, I could still benefit from buying their products. I wish these companies had stuck with their cannabis delivery services, but several of the newer companies wanted to focus on opening as several physical locations plus stores as possible while scaling back on delivery services over a numerous year time span. I can still buy a lot of medical cannabis products via home delivery, but several of the companies that still offer cannabis delivery services charge fees as high as $25 per order, and order minimums before you can get on the delivery schedule. At the end of the afternoon I’d rather stay at home instead of lining up at the stores.
