How Does Weed Delivery Work?


Marijuana is going legal in more and more states. And since online delivery is all the rage right now, I began 5to wonder how does weed delivery work?

Here’s what I know from looking into it:

Ordering weed delivery in states where it’s legal is the same as ordering online groceries. Make your decision, select delivery options, and check out. However, weed delivery is not legal in every state where weed itself is legal. And if it’s medical marijuana, you will have to provide the prescription and photo ID.

But that’s just a quick answer.

Luckily there’s a lot more to know and a lot more questions to answer as this can get c9omplicated. After all, it’s not legal everywhere, and even where it is, it can be heavily regulated. And that’s not even getting into states where only medical marijuana is legal.

So let’s answer the top questions and set the record straight!

Can you get marijuana delivered in states where weed is legal?

You can get marijuana delivered to your home in many, but not all, of the states where it is legal. 

That’s due to state regulations that limit or prohibit the delivery of certain things. It’s not really any different than how alcohol can be delivered in certain states but not others despite it being legal to buy it in a store.

Luckily, weed delivery in California is totally available and has the largest network of delivery companies.

Here are the states that currently offer marijuana delivery services (medical only in some cases):

  • Arizona
  • Alaska
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Maine
  • Maryland
  • Nevada
  • New Mexico
  • Oregon
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont

Just know that if you are in a medical-only state, you will need a doctor’s note and state ID card to be able to get a delivery of medical majijuana.

What states is weed NOT legal in?

There are 50 states in the US, but currently, 14 of those still have pot outlawed completely; not even for medical purposes.

Those states are:

  1. Alabama
  2. Georgia
  3. Idaho
  4. Indiana
  5. Iowa
  6. Kansas
  7. Kentucky
  8. Nebraska
  9. North Carolina
  10. South Carolina
  11. Tennessee
  12. Texas
  13. Wisconsin
  14. Wyoming

Which states could legalize marijuana next?

Of course, until it’s put to a vote and signed into law, nothing is certain. However, between polls, politician statements, and newspaper reports, the following states are the ones most likely to legalize marijuana in 2021:

  • Connecticut
  • New York
  • Rhode Island
  • Virginia

Following those states, we also have a few where voters seem to favor it, but there is still a vocal group of constituents opposed to it. So keep an eye on these also:

  • Delaware
  • Maryland
  • Minnesota
  • Pennsylvania 
  • Wisconsin

Then, we have the following states that at least seem to favor the legalization of medical marijuana:

  • Alabama 
  • Kentucky
  • South Carolina

Does Instacart deliver weed in California?

Currently, Instacart does not deliver marijuana in California, or any other state, legal or not. Considering they don’t deliver cigarettes either, don’t expect the delivery giant to start peddling weed anytime soon.

Luckily, there are a number of California companies, including one that Snoop Dog helped start, that will deliver marijuana right to your door.
