You Can't Have Your Weed Delivered By Drone In California, According To New Laws

Don’t expect that dank to be delivered via drone anytime soon.

The California Bureau of Cannabis Control has officially declared the cannabis deliveries cannot be made by autonomous vehicles – including UAVs and self-driving cars.

"Transportation may not be done by aircraft, watercraft, rail, drones, human-powered vehicles, or unmanned vehicles," reads the bureau's updated business licensing regulations.

"Deliveries may be made only in person by enclosed motor vehicle. Cannabis goods may not be visible to the public during deliveries. Cannabis goods may not be left in an unattended motor vehicle unless the vehicle has an active alarm system. Vehicles used for delivery must have a dedicated, active GPS device that enables the dispensary to identify the geographic location of the vehicle during delivery."

This announcement will no doubt be unwelcome news for proposed autonomous cannabis delivery start-ups in California like MDelivers, Eaze, Trees Delivery.

Derived from the part of the cannabis plant that doesn't get you “high” like THC, cannabidiol (CBD) is typically used for health reasons instead of for recreational purposes, and has been found to be especially useful for treating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. A challenging neurodegenerative disorder, Parkinson’s causes a combination of motor and non-motor symptoms — such as tremors, weakness, stiffness, dizziness, anxiety and sleeplessness — that affect daily life. CBD, typically taken in oil form, has the potential to relieve these symptoms, improving sleep, reducing inflammation and more, which can profoundly help the more than 10 million people across the world suffering.
