CONNECTICUT – With recreational cannabis sales looming in the state of Connecticut, home delivery to adults could be the next logical step in the legalization process.
According to a report by NBC Connecticut, a bill was passed last year that allows dispensaries, hybrid retailers, and micro-cultivators to provide contactless delivery to medical cannabis patients due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the state is holding two delivery license lotteries to enable some of those businesses to continue delivering to recreational patients.
“We anticipate that those licenses will be issued sometime either this fall or this winter,” says DeVaughn Ward, senior legislative counsel for the Marijuana Policy Project, “For folks who may not have a dispensary located very close to them, to still be able to receive their medicine or their cannabis in a safe and efficient way.”
Ward says over 300 applications for delivery licenses were summitted for the two lotteries that will be held. One of the lotteries is open to all cannabis licensed businesses in the state, the other will be a separate lottery focused on social equality in the cannabis industry.
The deadline for businesses to submit applications is next Wednesday, May 18th.
