Though marijuana is legal in Colorado for medical and recreational use, it still has not stopped dealers in Jefferson County from creating ways to profit. As with any new business, problems emerge, and entrepreneurs find profitable solutions. One of the issues in the ‘Green Rush’ state is people have started flipping legal marijuana, selling to customers who may not have access to dispensaries. These dealers are making enough profit to where they get arrested, pay a Jefferson County bail bonds to get them out, and repeat. All of this may change soon however. The same marijuana black market dealers may soon become legal delivery men.
Who will they deliver for?
If a bill gets passed next Wednesday, April 3rd, it will be legal for Medical Marijuana facilities to create & manage delivery apps for pot. After 1 year, a time period which they will study the ‘loopholes’ of the concept, recreational weed dispensaries will also get the chance to try their hand in the tech niche.
With Colorado.gov reporting $1.5-Billion-dollars in weed sales for 2018 and over $6-billion total, there’s no question that the delivery industry will see a major growth. This would mean a need for lots of new drivers who can be trusted to drop pot to client’s spot. Tens-of-thousands of people if not more will be requesting deliveries weekly. The only question, how well will stoners’ tips be?
Eliminating the Black Market for Marijuana in Colorado
This new delivery app is the mile-high city and state’s attempt to eradicate a lot of the blackmarket activities that have spiked in recent years. People with legit licenses to buy marijuana at recreational and medical dispensaries have found reselling the cannabinoid plant to be quite profitable. Some have made a habit of being repeat offenders because of how lucrative the resale market has been for them.
The cycle of getting caught selling weed has been a lucrative market for bail bondsmen like Tayler Made Bonding, who’s never targeted the particular minor criminal offense niche. However, this may change soon back to normal if the delivery app bill passes as regulators and those who need marijuana hope.
