Great news! Utah’s medical cannabis program will allow medical access by drive-through and home delivery. These options will allow patients to access medical cannabis without having to risk in-person transactions.
Drive-through access will be available as soon as medical cannabis pharmacies are equipped to offer it. At least two medical cannabis pharmacies — Dragonfly Wellness in Salt Lake City and a Perfect Earth location — plan to offer the service in July.
Home delivery will take longer to roll out. The Department of Health will begin accepting applications for couriers in July, with delivery anticipated beginning in the fall. This option is particularly important for patients who are homebound or otherwise deal with mobility challenges.
Utah joins 20 other medical cannabis states in allowing home delivery, and it is the third state to add the option during the pandemic.
Many thanks to each of the 10,000 MPP supporters who signed our petition to improve medical cannabis access during the coronavirus and to those of you who wrote Gov. Herbert to urge adoption of home delivery!
