Transporting Cannabis

“Cannabis remains federally illegal, and crossing state lines with cannabis can result in federal prosecution on drug trafficking charges. ” However, some states allow for delivery of cannabis. As such, the store is required to use a licensed transporter certified by the government. Requirements for cameras, ID scanners, and the amount of product carried in a vehicle at any given time are strictly followed. For California, detailed ledgers of sale and GPS monitoring are required with no license.

In comparison, New York uses licensed delivery services for only one business with a limit of 25 persons doing delivery for each business.
