Uber Eats Announced People In Toronto Can Get Weed Delivered Home From App

Toronto cannabis shoppers will be able to request cannabis deliveries through Uber Eats starting Monday.

The food delivery platform owned by U.S. tech giant Uber Technologies Inc. announced a partnership with online marijuana marketplace Leafly on Sunday that will see it process pot orders for retailers Hidden Leaf Cannabis, Minerva Cannabis and Shivaa’s Rose.

The partnership will mark the first time Uber has facilitated the delivery of marijuana anywhere in the world. Consumers, who must be age 19 or older, will place orders on the Uber Eats app, which stores can receive and respond to through Leafly’s software.

The retailers then send staff certified under Ontario’s cannabis retail education program, CannSell, to drop off purchases to shoppers, whose age and sobriety are checked on delivery.

Uber positioned the partnership as a way to tackle the illicit cannabis market, which licensed pot producers have long blamed for curbing sales.

“First and foremost, we see this as a critical piece to helping discourage impaired driving, and secondly, this is just another initiative that can help combat the illegal cannabis market, which still makes up more than 40 per cent of cannabis sales in Ontario today,” Lola Kassim, Uber Eats Canada’s general manager, told CBC Toronto.
