UberEats now selling cannabis in Canada’s first-ever recreational pot market

If you’re a medical marijuana user in Ontario, you now have the option to buy your supply through Uber Eats. Earlier this week, organizers for the national marijuana retail network announced they were joining forces with one of the world’s most well-known restaurant apps to allow users to purchase edible and incense products from shops across the province.

“This is another way for us to be a part of the Ontario community, and hopefully be a welcome addition,” said Andy Doyle, the COO of the Haze magazine and host of CBC’s Crossfire, which was founded by Snoop Dogg. “We think we can bring innovative ways of how to look at transportation and how to bring about the cannabis consumer.”

Ontario became the first province in North America to legalize recreational cannabis in October 2018. Marijuana retail opened up in April of this year, and in that time it has become increasingly difficult for local residents to find products that they want. In an effort to simplify the process for consumers, places like Irvine Farms and Shea Farms have been recruiting UberEats drivers to drop off their products at home.
