FRAMINGHAM (CBS) – Marijuana delivered right to your door. Delivery for recreational cannabis started this summer and it has opened up a door for young entrepreneurs who may not have had the chance before.
Marijuana retailer Cultivate has teamed up with the app Lantern and We Can Deliver to bring orders to homes. And people of color are first in line to benefit from this new industry.
Brianna Grignon of Cultivate says it was a selective process to find the right fit. “Massachusetts really set the tone for marijuana delivery applicants,” she said. “Only giving them to social equity applicants for the first three years.”
And one of those applicants was Gabe Salazar of the delivery business, “We Can Deliver.” Gabe was once arrested for possession with intent to deliver. The legalization of marijuana has flipped the script for him.
