California to Allow Marijuana Deliveries, but Not by Drones or “Unmanned Vehicles”

According to recently-released rules, marijuana deliveries will be allowed in California once the state’s legal marijuana system is up and running, but with some caveats.

On Wednesday the California Bureau of Cannabis Control released emergency regulations for the legal marijuana industry. The regulations allow marijuana to be delivered, but states that “Transportation may not be done by aircraft, watercraft, rail, drones, human-powered vehicles, or unmanned vehicles”.

According to the regulations; “Deliveries may be made only in person by enclosed motor vehicle. Cannabis goods may not be visible to the public during deliveries. Cannabis goods may not be left in an unattended motor vehicle unless the vehicle has an active alarm system. Vehicles used for delivery must have a dedicated, active GPS device that enables the dispensary to identify the geographic location of the vehicle during delivery.”
