Wondering where to buy weed? Marijuana legalization has made weed more accessible than ever. In fact, countless government-approved dispensaries and adult-use stores have opened nationwide, particularly in states where medical and recreational use have already been legitimized. This has led people to wonder, can you legally buy weed online?
The answer may not be as simple as you think. It has a lot to do with marijuana not being legal in all states just yet. As a result, it has made marijuana transportation between state lines a federal felony.
What about online orders within the state? Can you have weed delivered to your doorstep? Are there any risks in doing so?
What Do State Laws Say About Buying Weed Online?
Unfortunately, cannabis is still listed on Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act. Thus, under federal laws, distributing and possessing weed is still illegal and punishable by law. Medical use is also not a valid defense. This means that buying weed online and being involved in interstate weed transportation can put you at risk of serving jail time.
That being said, it is certainly possible to order weed online and get it delivered to your doorstep if it is within the scope of your state’s applicable laws. For instance, a lot of dispensaries in California allow their patrons to buy from their website and have it delivered through the use of third-party delivery companies like Eaze. Nugg, another cannabis delivery company, also delivers within Nevada and New York.
We can expect Eaze and Nugg (and similar delivery services) to expand their covered locations as federal laws surrounding cannabis use (particularly for recreational purposes) ease up. At the very least, most dispensaries allow their users to purchase weed online in advance and schedule a curbside pickup.
