Starting today, Canadian Uber Eats users can order cannabis via the popular app. Us Brits are envious.
The event marks the first time ever that marijuana delivery will be available through a major third party delivery platform, such as Uber, according to Leafly.
Those in Toronto aged 19 years old and over will be able to order in the app as they would from a restaurant, although when searching for cannabis users will be warned they must be of legal age.
There are some differences, however, between ordering food and cannabis on the app. One being that cannabis deliveries will be made by its retailer’s staff rather than an independent driver. Upon delivery, the deliverer will also verify a customer’s age and sobriety, in order to conform to Canadian law.
The program begins with three retailers: Hidden Leaf Cannabis, Minerva Cannabis and Shivaa’s Rose.
“We are partnering with industry leaders like Leafly to help retailers offer safe, convenient options for people in Toronto to purchase legal cannabis for delivery to their homes, which will help combat the illegal market and help reduce impaired driving” says Uber Eats Canada general manager Lola Kassim.
Think of it in the same way as ordering a bottle of wine from a restaurant or market on the app. The relaxation and ritual benefits should be truly enjoyed, just in moderation.
