Michigan regulators have approved three businesses for home cannabis delivery, the Associated Press reports. Customers can order up to 2.5 ounces of flower and 15 grams of concentrates to their homes – the limits are the same for in-person purchases – although the agency did not indicate when delivery services would commence.
The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs approved home deliveries by Lit Provisionary in Evart, Battle Creek Provisioning in Battle Creek, and Nature’s Releaf Burton in Burton, the report says.
Customers must be 21-or-older to purchase cannabis in Michigan and delivery orders must be placed online. Most payments will be made online, but delivery services are allowed to accept cash.
Delivery drivers must also be 21and cannot carry more than 15 ounces at a time. Cannabis products must be secure if left in a delivery vehicle and all vehicles must be equipped with GPS.
The approval comes about a month after the launch of adult-use cannabis sales in the state but about 78 percent of the state’s municipalities do not allow recreational cannabis operations. Cities and towns that do not allow adult-use businesses do not get a share of the 10 percent excise tax imposed on cannabis sales.
In the first full fiscal year, Michigan cannabis sales are expected to generate $180.5 million in taxes, according to the Michigan Senate Fiscal Agency. By 2022-2023 those figures are expected to reach $287.9 million.
