People over the age of 19 residing in Toronto can now place their marijuana orders through Uber

Starting this week, residents of Toronto, Canada, can request safe and legal cannabis, but they will also be able to receive it directly at their homes thanks to the service provided by the Uber Eats application in conjunction with Leafly, a website focused on consumption and cannabis education.

In this way, people over the age of 19 residing in the capital of the province of Ontario can now place orders from local licensed cannabis retailers in the Uber Eats application and then have them delivered to their homes by the CannSell certified staff of the retail.

It should be noted that this is the first time that cannabis delivery will be available on a major global third-party delivery platform.

Now, to avoid legal conflicts with the authorities, those who deliver the order will also verify the customer’s age and sobriety, to comply with Canadian law.

In this regard, Lola Kassim, general manager of UBER Eats Canada, referred to the importance of the service they will offer, because in this way it may be possible to eradicate the illegality linked to cannabis.

“We are partnering with industry leaders like Leafly to help retailers provide safe and convenient options for people in Toronto to purchase legal cannabis for home delivery, which will help combat the illegal market and reduce drunk driving. the effects of alcohol,” he said in a statement.

For her part, Yoko Miyashita, CEO of Leafly, clarified that they are about to complete five years of work focused on selling legal cannabis to consumers.

“Leafly has powered the Canadian cannabis market for over four years and we support over 200 cannabis retailers. We are thrilled to be working with Uber Eats to help licensed retailers bring safe and legal cannabis to people across the city,” she emphasized.

People interested in making use of this service provided in Toronto only need to access the Uber Eats application and select the “Cannabis” category or search for one of the authorized retailers to sell the product.

Immediately afterwards, a warning will appear on your electronic device indicating that only if you are of legal age you can enter the virtual store.

From there, the rest of the process has to do with selecting the authorized retailer, which must be in the corresponding delivery range.

As when ordering food with Uber Eats, the application will notify when the authorized provider accepts the order and the estimated time in which it will be delivered.
