Online Cannabis Store In Detroit Becomes The First To Do Weed Home-Deliveries

Residents of Michigan, home to some of the nation’s largest metropolises, must certainly enjoy their state culture. And that’s not just referring to Ann Arbor’s University of Michigan campus. Unlike the majority of the United States, Michigan enjoys legal and regulated recreational and medicinal cannabis. What’s more, in the city of Detroit, the usual dispensaries and retail stores may now provide alternate service to customers. And that is the exciting concept of cannabis delivery!

That’s right, cannabis may now get the typical, straight to your doorstep experience that fast food already has. And that in itself makes it highly unusual and nearly unprecedented. After all, the exact nature of this service may still need further understanding for most. This entire concept goes deeper than just the usual pizza delivery-esque experience.

The Delivery Service Comes From Lantern, An Established Online Cannabis Retailer

While many probably would not recognize their name, Lantern made quite a name for itself in recent years. The company sets itself apart from typical cannabis stores, which have a physical location. While these stores may also provide online order placements and web catalogs, all of them require in-store pickup. That’s where Lantern swoops in to appeal to customers confined to their homes, lacking transport means, or just inconvenienced. And finally, the company announced that all deliveries across Detroit will be absolutely free.

This approach to retail cannabis comes after Lantern, in previous months, enjoyed successful delivery options in Ann Arbor. The new expansion of delivery options will once again ship through 3Fifteen. This company is the largest cannabis distributor in the entire state of Michigan, and thus well-regulated and efficient. The new business model consists of placing the order at Lanturn’s website and receiving delivery within an hour. The only prerequisites for placing an order are within the legal limit of 15 grams concentrate, and a valid ID at the address.

The Move is a Testament to Michigan’s Progressive Cannabis Policies

Cannabis in Michigan only was decriminalized in 2018 across the board. This change in legislation came to fully legalize recreational and medicinal (which was already legal since 2008, with a valid prescription) weed. However, the majority of policies the state government took over the years reflected a positive attitude towards it. Rather than just tolerating the drug due to legislative requirements, the public and state officials mostly work to embrace it.

Michigan also recently made headlines for its upcoming social equity reforms act. This bill seeks to correct the wrongs made by the disastrous War On Drugs. This decades-long campaign to end drug use only served to marginalize impoverished communities associated with the illegal drug trade and usage.

This included African Americans and the Latino American communities disproportionately being convicted. It also led to the near closure of the marijuana industry in the United States. To encourage cannabis acceptance, compensate affected communities, and bolster new independently-owned weed stores, the act offered expungement for those with prior convictions and increased grants and funding to store owners.

Lantern’s new foray into the realm of convenient cannabis drop-offs serves to normalize and encourage safe cannabis usage

Similar to the recent telemedicine proposal in New Jersey, this policy will help those who need regular prescription doses. For many patients who cannot venture out due to health constraints or the risk of COVID-19, this is perfect. Furthermore, the delivery option will also encourage new and veteran users alike to order due to sheer convenience.

All in all, Lantern’s policy certainly seems to be ideal. After all, the cannabis industry, after decades of hardship, deserves ease. Hopefully, that comes in abundance going forward.
