Marijuana Delivery Licenses

Under the Cannabis Control Commission's regulations, there are two types of Delivery Licenses; Marijuana Delivery Operators and Marijuana Couriers. Marijuana Delivery Operators are entities that are licensed to purchase at wholesale and warehouse finished marijuana products acquired from a marijuana cultivator, product manufacturer, microbusiness or craft marijuana cooperative, and white-label, sell and deliver finished marijuana products, accessories and branded goods directly to Consumers. This license type is not authorized to repackage marijuana or operate a storefront under this license. Please see the CCC's regulations for additional information.

Town Draft Regulations
