Bill would allow marijuana dispensaries to deliver

DENVER — Colorado lawmakers are considering a bill that would allow marijuana dispensaries to make deliveries.

Under SB17-192, medical marijuana centers and retails stores that are approved for the service could use an employee or contract with a marijuana transporter to make the deliveries.

Age restrictions and existing laws about purchasing marijuana would still apply.

“[N]ot only would the customer making the order have to be 21 or older, but he or she would have to sign for it and could not be visibly intoxicated when it is delivered,” Westword reported.

“There would also be limits on residences where deliveries are allowed: Residential homes would be OK, but delivery would not be available for public spaces, dormitories, hotels or commercial businesses.”

The bill was introduced Tuesday and is scheduled to be heard by the Senate Business, Labor and Technology committee on March 1.

The bill is sponsored by Sen. Tim Neville, R-District 16, Rep. Jonathan Singer, D-District 11, and Rep. Jovan Melton, D-District 41.
