One of the craziest things about the cannabis industry today is the difference in all of the state laws. Some states allow generous home growing limits, some offer different amounts of possession, while others offer drinkables, and others don’t offer any of these things. And delivery, in particular, is one of the most desired and controversial services when it comes to getting marijuana, especially in the latest markets to legalize. So for those of you in the Northeast, need legal weed in New York delivered to you?
Wait, is weed delivery still that controversial?
It really is. Some states aren’t yet comfortable with it, feeling that it’s too much too soon. At the same time, other states have fully embraced the weed delivery trend.
Why is New York so comfortable with weed delivery?
Honestly? Because of the money. Projections indicate that legal New York recreational marijuana is going to create a total of 60,000 jobs in the state, and around $3.5 billion. If only a portion of this is delivery, that’s still a huge amount of tax revenue. So no, they’ve got no issue with delivery.
And what are these services?
