California legalizes marijuana, but will ban drone deliveries

2022-04-29

Drones serving burgers, beer, and Amazon products may be just around the corner, but now the California Bureau of Cannabis Control recently unveiled new regulations that will ban drone delivery of marijuana. Following the legalization of recreational marijuana in California, the RA is currently working on the Medicinal and Adult-Use Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA).

Under the bill, marijuana shipments would be required to be transported in commercial vehicles or trailers, and the transport of marijuana by aircraft, ships, railroads, drones, human-powered vehicles or unmanned vehicles would be prohibited. That means drone-delivery cannabis startups like MDelivers and Eaze won't be able to continue their business.

According to the regulations, marijuana deliveries can only be made by authorized retailers via enclosed motor vehicles, and the vehicle used for delivery must have GPS that allows the seller to track the package. The bill specifically states that the person delivering the marijuana is not allowed to use the substance at the time of delivery.

California is the largest cannabis economy in the U.S., and the legal cannabis industry could be worth $5 billion. California requires mass distributors, retailers, testing labs and other businesses to be licensed on January 1, 2018.
