Uber Eats customers will be able to order weed through the app, well for Toronto rather, thanks to a new partnership with Leafly.
Starting today, those in Canada have a new way of getting weed without the hassle. Uber Eats has teamed up with a cannabis company called Leafly, to offer weed deliveries to residents from local and licensed retailers.
Uber Eats claims this is a world first for a “a major third-party delivery platform.” Users in Ontario have been available to order weed through the app since last November, but until now items were only available for pickup.
According to Engadget, Hidden Leaf Cannabis, Minerva Cannabis and Shivaa’s Rose are the first three to sign up to participate in this move. Those in Toronto aged 19 years old and over will be able to order in the app as they would from a restaurant, although when searching for cannabis users will be warned they must be of legal age.
After confirmation of your order, one of the retailer’s own licensed “budtenders” will deliver your items. The delivery person will verify your age and level of sobriety before handing over the goods. Uber Eats, in many cases, would try to deliver everyone’s weed order in 45 minutes.
