Marijuana Delivery Licenses

Under the Cannabis Control Commission's regulations, there are two types of delivery licenses; Marijuana Delivery Operators and Marijuana Couriers. Marijuana Couriers are entities licensed to deliver finished marijuana products, accessories, and branded goods directly to consumers from a marijuana retailer, or directly to registered qualifying patients or caregivers from an MTC, but is not authorized to sell marijuana or marijuana products directly to consumers, registered qualifying patients or caregivers and is not authorized to wholesale, warehouse, process, repackage, or white-label. Please see the CCC's regulations for additional information.

The Town is in the process of updating its bylaw to be consistent with the CCC's recently adopted language to expand delivery-only uses for adult-use cannabis. The new Marijuana Courier Licenses are available exclusively for Certified Economic Empowerment Priority Applicants (EEAs) and Social Equity Program (SEP) Participants for a minimum of three years.
