The COVID-19 pandemic has not only deemed marijuana an essential product in many states but also has made the idea of home delivery an important one.
Oklahoma’s Governor however doesn’t seem to think so. The state’s Gov. Kevin Stitt vetoed a bill that would have allowed home delivery and pre-roll production and sales.
Many marijuana enthusiasts had been hopeful as the Republican-controlled Legislature passed the bill by a wide margin.
In Oklahoma, only licensed caregivers are able to deliver to patients and the vetoed legislation would have allowed dispensaries to deliver within a 10-mile radius of their location.
For patients who live farther away, a dispensary in the same county would have been authorized to make deliveries to those individuals.
