A person’s future purchase of cannabis can be as simple as ordering a take away.

Uber’s CEO said the company will “absolutely” examine whether cannabis shipments are part of its services once the drug is federally legalized in the US

Dara Khosrowshahi stated in an interview with CNBC last week that the company’s current focus is on passenger mobilization and the delivery of food and alcohol. Once the weed is legalized, providing appropriate delivery could well be an option.

  3. The state, which legalized recreational cannabis in 2016, issued an order to stay home to prevent the virus from spreading, and many people fear going out because of the risk of infection.

    Allowing cannabis delivery is a good place to start. But too many weeds are still being sold in the illegal market

Khosrowshahi was asked about the legalization of recreational cannabis in New York State.

One of the fastest growing companies in the country, Uber recently acquired Drizly and Postmates, big names when it comes to food and alcohol delivery.

According to Khosrowshahi, Uber is interested in “the types of deliveries that a high percentage of consumers want to have quickly delivered to their homes and that are quite common.” It’s a service that seems perfect for cannabis.

“Could Uber deliver your weeds?” CNBC asked in a tweet.

“When the road is clear for cannabis and federal laws come into play, we will definitely see this,” said Khosrowshahi. “But right now we’re seeing so many opportunities in the grocery store, in the food, in the liquor, and so on, and we will focus on the opportunities that arise,” he told CNBC.

While federal marijuana legalization in the US is likely a long way off, Uber’s interest is a sign of the cannabis industry’s ability to grow.
