STARTING A MEDICAL MARIJUANA DELIVERY SERVICE
If you are interested in starting your medical marijuana delivery service in the state of California, there are several things to consider, like whether or not the city or county in which you want to establish your business has a enacted a ban on cannabis businesses. Or, to pursue an M-Type License or A-Type License (Medical or Adult Use). As of November 8, 2016, California changed its laws surrounding recreational marijuana with the passing of Prop 64 or AUMA, allowing for retail, manufacturing, cultivation, and distribution with a state and local cannabis license. Applications for state licenses, medical and recreational, should be available in Q4 of 2017, roughly October or November according to the BMCR.

Rather than opening a traditional brick and mortar store front or Dispensary which can be cost prohibitive, starting a cannabis or delivery service (License Type 10) can be a much more realistic and cost-effective way to start and grow your business in this new industry. By choosing to stay mobile, the barriers to entry (buildout,deposits,fixtures,displays,furniture) are much lower, thereby making your entrance into the industry easier and less expensive.
With lower overhead, you will be free to explore your business options like marketing strategy, menu selection, and branding. Certain patients who find it hard to leave their homes or cannot physically spend extended periods of time in transit will appreciate delivery. Chances are, they will also enjoy the level of specialized and individual attention they will receive from your delivery service, as it will make the experience seem all that much more tailored to their needs. People appreciate being catered to and given personal attention. Some people just prefer the luxury of not leaving the house. Patients enjoy when you can bring the dispensary experience right to their home or office.

Learning how to start a medical cannabis delivery service is a sensible alternative to starting a Dispensary. Lower up front costs, less exposure to
law enforcement and hostile local citizens equals longevity for delivery services. One note to keep in mind is the state of California does not currently have a license category for “Delivery Services” only brick and mortar store front locations. But, AB64 currently making its way through the California legislator would add a “Delivery Service” license category to both cannabis systems in California, AUMA and Prop 64. Please call your state legislator and demand they vote yes on AB64. In short keep an eye on AB64 and any subsequent changes in regards to delivery services on a state level.
