    Portland Council Votes Unanimously to Allow Cannabis Delivery Services

    The Portland, Oregon City Council voted yesterday to allow cannabis delivery services (“marijuana couriers”) and other “micro” cannabis business types.

    The move, which was approved unanimously, is designed to ease the financial and regulatory burden imposed by those trying to get involved in the new industry.

    “Since the state regulations keep changing and the industry keep flourishing; we’ll be coming back with multiple changes I’m sure,” Commissioner Amanda Fritz said following the vote. “I look forward to that time.”

    Under the new law, cannabis courier businesses can produce cannabis and cannabis products, but will be required to remain a delivery-only service; this means that no brick and mortar location will be offering delivery.

    Under current law only physicians can recommend medical cannabis to patients, but only around 600 of roughly 80,000 physicians in the state have begun recommending the medicine to their patients. The expansion is meant to make it easier for people who could use cannabis to have it recommended to them by allowing nurses to recommend it;  this will take effect after a 45-day comment period.
