Cannabis retailers now permitted to provide delivery and curbside pick-up options
The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) is announcing it will be authorizing cannabis stores in Ontario to provide delivery and curbside pick-up services.
Authorized stores will be permitted to sell, deliver, and offer curbside pick-up of cannabis, and cannabis-related products seven days per week from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Customers will still be limited to 30 grams of dried cannabis, or (or equivalent) per transaction.
Additionally, all those involved in the sale and delivery of cannabis products must be CannSell certified.
Further, only the licensed retailer or an employee may deliver cannabis orders on behalf of the store.
“We’ve been working closely with the Government of Ontario on ways to support cannabis retail store operators and legal recreational cannabis consumers since the stores were ordered to close following a provincial order declaring a state of emergency,” Jean Major, Registrar and CEO for the AGCO, said in a news release.
“This new measure helps address consumer demand and maintain a revenue stream for store operators while supporting the government’s broader objectives,” he continued.
