Canadians living in Toronto can officially purchase weed through the Uber Eats app.
Yep, you read that right, the use of weed in Canada is legal so anyone aged 19 years or older can order their plant-based appetizer as well as their meal for when they’re feeling like a munch after.
To link users with nearby dispensaries, the food delivery service has teamed up with the online marijuana company Leafly.
Ordering the cannabis products in the app seems pretty easy too. Just like the options for different food categories, those wanting to can select the ‘Cannabis’ option.
A display of different retailers will pop up and you can take your pick. Although it seems a little bit more intense than choosing between a K-fry or Maccas feed.
Of course, you do have to be of age to enter the chosen store’s selections, but that seems pretty easy as long as you didn’t lose your ID out in town on the weekend.
The rest is pretty much the same as the standard ordering process, except for when it comes to the handover.
Customers will have to verify their age and sobriety to CannSell-certified staff from the Ontario-based cannabis retail education programme.
The fact that you can make it to the door to grab your order should be proof enough! RIP all the forgotten dusty meals left on the front doorstep.
Leafly revealed that this is the first time marijuana delivery has been made possible on a third-party food-ordering website like Uber Eats.
Both Leafly and Uber Eats, hope that this collaboration will help combat the dodgy selling of marijuana and lessen the risk of driving while high.
Leafly CEO Yoko Miyashita said: “Leafly has been empowering the cannabis marketplace in Canada for more than four years and we support more than 200 cannabis retailers in the GTA.”
“We are thrilled to work with Uber Eats to help licensed retailers bring safe, legal cannabis to people across the city.”
It’s not clear when/if this partnership will expand, but Uber says it has no formal plans to expand this particular offering to customers elsewhere as the legality of cannabis consumption varies.
