You Can't Have Your Weed Delivered By Drone In California According To New Laws

You Can't Have Your Weed Delivered By Drone In California According To New Laws

Silicon Valley will surely make the most of this ripe new opportunity in its backyard. Yet the California Bureau of Cannabis Control is forbidding the delivery of marijuana by an autonomous vehicle-whether from the sky or the ground.

Sure, you can get pharmaceutical prescriptions via the mail, but not marijuana.

Korea may lead to 'global catastrophe,' warns Putin
The Trump administration has warned North Korea that any threat to the USA or its allies would be met with a " massive military response ".

The Bureau of Cannabis Control, part of the California Department of Consumer Affairs, said distributors of cannabis and related products will be required to transfer such goods through a commercial vehicle or trailer. That's gotta be done by a human-driven auto, according to the regulations. The publication comes after Californians voted to legalize recreational marijuana, but before the state starts handing out business licenses in 2018.

The renewable energy powered drones have a single flight range of over 50 miles and can deliver packages including cannabis flower, edibles and concentrates within 30 minutes in most areas.

Gov. Cooper Declares State Of Emergency In Anticipation Of Irma Impacts
The State Emergency Operations Center remains activated and operations will continue as long as needed. As many as 6 million people were expected to leave the Sunshine State to get out of Irma's path.

Utilizing an existing infrastructure of over 420 electric vehicle charging stations, the drones will be 100 percent autonomous and capable of delivering high-grade, lab-tested cannabis across all of California. Startups like Eaze and MDelivers have already publicized their intentions to deliver cannabis in California. Vehicles used for delivery must have a dedicated, active Global Positioning System device that enables the dispensary to identify the geographic location of the vehicle during delivery. Thousands of rules here govern everything from seed to weed to delivery.

"After navigating the complexities of medical marijuana permitting, the state and FAA licensing process was actually pretty simple".

Trump asks Supreme Court to lift restrictions on refugees in travel ban
The Supreme Court in July largely upheld that ruling, though it put on hold the portion dealing with refugees. The broader question of whether the travel ban discriminates against Muslims in violation of the U.S.

Of course, beyond-line-of-sight regulation - which prohibits a pilot from flying a drone out of sight - seems to be another wrinkle in overcoming this kind of restriction. And even if those rules were changed, which Amazon and other retailers are pressing for, local governments and states may still regulate how marijuana is distributed.
