In Oklahoma, cannabis dispensaries are now allowed to provide curbside pickup service as long as they take care to minimize contact between all employees and customers.
Dispensaries are exempt from the Governors Safer-at-home order for vulnerable populations and the elderly that was issued in response to the growing coronavirus pandemic.
Oklahoma sees dispensaries as essential businesses, like many states, and are allowed to remain open.
While medical marijuana shops are given some leeway with curbside pickups, they are still not allowed to deliver to patients or caregivers.
“Due to the complexities related to its status as a controlled substance, there are numerous statutes that prohibit Medical Marijuana businesses from delivering to patients,” the Oklahoma Marijuana Authority said.
The state looks at curbside pickup as a similar service to restaurants providing carry-out food.
