The local lawmakers in our small mountain town are playing it easy for the time being. Before opening the floodgates to anyone wanting to sling pot from their back porch, the municipality wants to be slow and selective with their approach.
Other cities, including Vancouver and Squamish to the south, have opted for a more liberal approach to dispensaries. Even before legalization.
From what we know thus far, Whistler is taking a “watch and see” approach. They want to be careful with where and when they allow this recreational substance into their small mountain town.
We live in a world where we can get almost anything a heart desires by simply ordering it online and having it delivered straight to our doors. Not so much for the legal cannabis industry, who – through no fault of their own – have had to engage in some workarounds to make purchasing a simpler and more convenient process for consumers.
For example, in legal states, many dispensaries will allow consumers to place orders online, then have it delivered by a third-party service like Eaze or Nugg. How consumers order and pick up cannabis is evolving every day, especially given the new reality of Covid-19. For the time being at least, dispensaries are being granted a little more latitude to keep consumers and workers safe by allowing people to order online or over the phone and pick up curbside. In the midst of such expansion, illegal delivery options (often with dangerous consequences) have expanded as well. How can you find legitimate delivery options? Read on as we explore buying weed online in the changing landscape.
Despite the fact that cannabis is legal for adults to consume in 11 states and Washington D.C., federal prohibition has kept canna-businesses from shipping weed through services like FedEx and UPS. Many people falsely believe that oversight is only enforced through the official United States Postal Service.
