CANNABIS will soon be available to order on Uber Eats for some users.
Uber is entering the marijuana market by making the drug available to purchase via the Uber Eats app in Ontario, Canada.
The company hasn’t revealed whether it will start making weed available to order for more customers in Canada or the US in the future.
Ontario Uber Eats users should soon see a section of the app dedicated to cannabis seller Tokyo Smoke.
Adults will be able to get orders from a store near them.
Prospective buyers will have to verify their age to order cannabis on the app.
Uber has said orders should be available to pick up within an hour.
Marijuana has been legal in Canada since 2018 but it’s still illegal to deliver it.
That’s why Uber Eats users will have to go to the store to pick up the drug themselves.
Back in April, Uber chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi said the company would consider delivering cannabis in the US if it was to be permitted by US law.
Canada’s cannabis market is said to be worth around $4billion (£3billion).
Illegal producers are still thought to control most of the sales despite the drug now being legal in Canada.
Uber has said that its partnership with Tokyo Smoke could help people buy cannabis legally and safely.
