The increase of weed delivery services in states such as Colorado are reducing dangerous driving

Word is out: legal weed delivery services like are keeping the roads safer. At GRASSDOOR we take pride in delivering cannabis in your city legally, coming to your door so that you don’t have to drive to a dispensary and risk driving impaired.

While speaking at a panel about road safety, Governor Jared Polis explained that, “Colorado has long been a leader in cannabis reform, our new efforts include allowing delivery of marijuana, so we’re moving away from the risk of people driving while impaired by having legal delivery to people’s homes.”

Although delivery services such as deliver Los Angeles cannabis delivery, road safety is a federal issue, especially as more and more states pass legalization laws.

Sound of the Polis: Delivery equals road safety

Speaking at a road safety panel at the National Governors Association’s 2019 Summer Meeting in Utah, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) voiced his concerns about driving under the influence of marijuana and asked what measures were being taken to encourage consumers to not smoke and drive. He highlighted the ambiguity of driving under the influence of cannabis, which is harder to detect than alcohol.

That’s when Governor Polis stepped in to vouch for weed delivery services, such as GRASSDOOR who delivery top quality cannabis in CA, and their impact of keeping drivers safe.

By delivering cannabis products to your door, long gone are the days of driving to your nearest dispensary and risking breaking the law by driving under the influence. GRASSDOOR-style services in Colorado are changing the road safety game, making sure that you can get top quality cannabis flower, vape carts, edibles and concentrates without having to leave your residential address.

“We just passed the enabling legislation around that, beginning with medical marijuana and then moving to full regulated sale of marijuana so people exercise—in our state, it’s a constitutional right to use marijuana in their home—[that right] without the risk of them using it somewhere else and driving,” said Governor Polis. “We’re really looking at a wide variety of tactics to decrease that risk.”

Polis signed a bill in May 2019 that enabled medical cannabis dispensaries to deliver cannabis products to their patients from January 2020, and adult-use (meaning recreational) stores to delivery weed to their customers by January 2021.

Although delivery is yet to be studied in depth as a new addition to marijuana legalization in states such as Colorado, Reason Foundation’s Spence Purnell wrote “as many states have banned the use of marijuana in public, delivery may encourage more consumers to consume in the safety of their homes without ever having to leave.”

The foundation further explained that “there is little theoretical reasoning as to why delivery would increase the rate of impaired driving”, adding that it is “at least equally as plausible that delivery will keep already impaired individuals from driving to purchase more product.”
