Uber Eats to sell … cannabis, in Canada

In April, the boss of Uber indicated keep a close eye on the cannabis market. Dara Khosrowshahi, however, did not claim to be tempted by the launch of an “UberWeed” service in the United States, without legalization of the consumption of weed recreation at the federal level (around 15 states authorize it to date). But he said his company could one day enter this market. Uber specified that a launch of a cannabis delivery service could be considered in other countries more liberated on this issue before the United States.

If France was logically not chosen (cannabis is still illegal), Canada becomes the first market in which Uber sells cannabis.
Initially, only Canadians living in the province of Ontario will be able to take advantage of this service. They have to pick up the drugs they order themselves, delivery is not yet offered.

A partnership with a cannabis player

It’s in Uber Eats that Canadians can now order cannabis. The application lists the points of sale of Tokyo Smoke, a Canadian specialist in weed.
As with any restaurant, you can choose products, pay for them and collect them by presenting their smartphone. Uber hasn’t opted for a delivery option yet, presumably to avoid criticism.
Uber Eats doesn’t make it easier to consume cannabis, but just saves time in the store, at least for now.

Also to discover in video:

Asked by Reuters on the possible expansion of the sale of cannabis to other countries or Canadian provinces, Uber says it has nothing to announce at the moment.
This launch should precede others, however, especially since the company is also closely interested in the delivery of alcohol. In France, remember that such an option would of course be illegal.
