After debuting a delivery service in California last month, MedMen has announced a new 24-hour delivery service in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Legally, dispensaries are only allowed to operate a delivery service during business hours, and since MedMen has multiple 24-hour locations, a 24-hour delivery service is possible. Nevada allows cannabis delivery services, but most dispensaries use a third-party to make the deliveries.
“MedMen has always been at the forefront of shaping and defining the cannabis industry, and we are proud to be taking the next step in our evolution by expanding our delivery service to include Nevada,” said Adam Bierman, MedMen Co-Founder and CEO, said. “Residents of southern Nevada can now access quality cannabis and enjoy MedMen’s unparalleled retail experience and customer service from the comfort of their own home.”
The Nevada Dispensary Association provides a one-hour course on delivering cannabis because of the extensive rules. All deliveries must occur within a 25-mile radius from the store where the order was placed, and all stops during the trip, such as for gas or a bathroom break, must be pre-planned. All delivery vehicles will be unmarked for driver safety and all products being delivered will be stored in a lockbox. Delivery drivers will wear body cameras and will not be allowed to carry more than five ounces of recreational cannabis or 10 ounces of medical cannabis.
“We use GPS technology, so we know where the vehicle and our delivery drivers are at all times. The customer receives continuous updates during the process, and our drivers utilize an app that confirms the customer’s identity,” said David Farries, spokesman for Planet 13 dispensary in Las Vegas.
Last Year, MedMen acquired medical cannabis dispensary chain Pharmacann in what was the largest cannabis acquisition in the U.S. MedMen also recently acquired One Love Beach Club in Long Beach, California, for $13 million. The Long Beach store is located in between existing Santa Ana and Los Angeles stores.
