The food delivery service said in a statement that it has partnered with online marijuana directory Leafly to deliver from three local dispensaries - Hidden Leaf Cannabis, Minerva Cannabis and Shivaa's Rose, The Hill reports.
"We are partnering with industry leaders like Leafly to help retailers offer safe, convenient options for people in Toronto to purchase legal cannabis for delivery to their homes, which will help combat the illegal market and help reduce impaired driving," said Uber Eats Canada GM Lola Kassim.
Residents over the age of 19 will be allowed to place orders from the three local licensed cannabis retailers in the city through the Uber Eats app. Then the retailers will send staff certified under the province's cannabis retail education program, CannSell, to deliver customers' purchases to their doorstep. -The Hill
"Over the last few years, we have invested heavily in our delivery business and selection has expanded tremendously. Uber Eats has grown quickly to become a versatile platform usable by diverse businesses large and small," Kassim continued.
