OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) – Medical marijuana patients in Washington could soon get their cannabis delivered to their door.
The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board is studying how to best implement a delivery system.
State lawmakers are asking the board for policy recommendations by December 1.
Lawmakers want the agency to study how to develop and implement a system of delivering medical marijuana to qualified patients from properly licensed retailers.
Among issues the study must consider are how to verify those receiving the product are registered in the state’s medical marijuana authorization database and what payment methods would be allowed.
The Washington State Department of Health says there are 290 retailers in the state with a state-issued endorsement to sell medical marijuana products and about 18,000 active patients.
Oregon already allows marijuana delivery for both recreational and medical purposes.
