Medical cannabis delivery service being expanded in the District

Two emergency rules were adopted Thursday by the Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Board which will increase patients' access to medical cannabis in the District.

Dispensaries will be allowed to use up to three vehicles to deliver cannabis between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. daily. Before, the dispensaries were limited to one vehicle and only between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.

D.C. Health, the previous administrator for medical cannabis, previously granted the ability to deliver medical cannabis to prevent people with compromised immune systems from getting the coronavirus starting in April of 2020.

A second rule which was adopted Thursday allows dispensary workers to work up to 45 days while the results of their criminal background are being checked.

Cannabis patients and caregivers with expiration dates ending on or after March 11, 2020, will stay valid for up to 45 days after the COVID-19 public health emergency ends, according to the ABC Board.
