The next big trend in marijuana is the move toward on-demand delivery. If you’re wondering how to start your own medical marijuana delivery service, it’s imperative to realize the process can be quite difficult and you must have a well-thought-out plan before you begin.
Starting your MMJ Delivery Service
There are two major factors you need to consider when starting your delivery service. First, you need to have a clear understanding of the laws in your state regarding mobile marijuana dispensing. Some states have banned this practice altogether.
Other states allow it, but place limitations on how close you can be to schools and other locations where children congregate. A skilled marijuana attorney can advise you on the best way to navigate your local laws.
Second, you need to consider the cost of operating a delivery service. There are certain insurance requirements that are necessary since your employees will be on the road.
In addition, you will need to determine your reimbursement for fuel costs and wear and tear on vehicles, as well as the distance you are willing to drive to make deliveries.
Finally, you may need to consider the costs of security for your drivers. Given the relatively high dollar value of the products you are delivering and the amount of cash your drivers will be carrying, security may be necessary to protect your drivers and your investment.
Once you’ve answered these important questions you can create a protocol for how you will dispatch orders and route your drivers once orders start coming in.

If you’ve successfully navigated the planning stages of your delivery service, the next step is to market your new business to customers. There is sure to be quite a buzz about your dispensary if you are one of the only shops in town offering delivery.
As with other MMJ products and businesses, you will be limited in your ability to market using traditional methods so you will have to rely heavily on social media, word of mouth and other avenues.
