Since you are likely staying at home more than you did in the past, you may be considering having your weed or similar products delivered right to your door. But, with that comes the question of restrictions. Do you have restrictions on marijuana delivery?

Well, that depends on the state that you live in, among some other things. Luckily, Emjay has got your back and wants to help keep you informed on what is happening in the industry.

This is everything that you need to know on restrictions for marijuana delivery:

Is marijuana legal in your state?

Of course, the first thing that you need to know is if marijuana is even legal in your state. That should help to give you some insight into the restrictions that might be present.

If you live somewhere where recreational or medical marijuana is legal, then you may be able to get your products delivered right to your home. Many people today do not need to commute to a physical store unless they want to, you can do a lot of your shopping right online, from the convenience of your home.

These are all of the states that have legalized marijuana to some degree and offer delivery services. If you live in one of these states, then you can have weed delivered:

  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Maine
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Nevada
  • New Mexico
  • New York
  • Oregon
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont
  • Washington

These are the regulations that you need to be aware of:


Adults who are the age 21 or older can purchase and consume cannabis from a state-licensed retailer. You can buy one ounce of marijuana at a time, only. The cannabis must also have fewer than 5.6 grams of THC inside of it.

If you are an adult, public cannabis consumption is still illegal. You can safely take it inside your home or even in a building that has proper certification. All types are legal- flowers, edibles, oils, tinctures, topical creams- you name it.


Alabama currently has no regulations for CBD products that go below 0.3% THC, which is the legal limit countrywide. If you buy any product containing more than that amount of THC, you and the business or person you bought the product from can face charges. In other words, consuming CBD is fine, but consuming a product with more than 0.3% is illegal in this state. That means you can only have products that fit that bill delivered to your home.


Adults 21 and older can buy from a dispensary that is recognized by the state. Delivery services are common and actually popular in the area. You need to take your product at home or another legal, private space away from the general public. If you vape cannabis in a non-smoking area, you will get in trouble.

Overall, this state is very lax on its marijuana delivery and there are little to no restrictions when it comes to the service.


If you are over the age of 21, then you can legally purchase marijuana but may not have deliveries made to your home without any restrictions. Recreational marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home or other private space.

In Colorado, cannabis delivery has not yet been made legal, despite the state’s interest in providing it through other means.

You may not drive under the influence of marijuana, so be sure that you have plans to stay in when you consume it.

There are also many buildings where you can consume your products. They are often referred to as “hospitality establishments” and can offer a variety of other services.

The remaining states

Since it is legal in the remaining states we listed above, you can buy it as long as you are over 21 and plan on taking the product in the privacy of your own home. Other than that, what are the restrictions on ordering marijuana and having it delivered?

As long as it is legal in your state, you do not have to worry. Reputable delivery services like Emjay will only deliver to you if it is allowed. So, if you live in an area where it is legal, but delivery specifically is not, then we will not be able to bring any orders to you. This keeps you from accidentally breaking the law if you are not familiar with it.

Has covid affected deliveries?

Covid has affected the delivery of marijuana from companies, by making it more popular and in demand. The pandemic has actually sped up the acceptance of delivering these products, making them more common than in-person stores for marijuana at the moment. If it is legal in your state, you should have no problems finding a place to bring it right to you.

However, Covid might be affecting local stores that used to deliver negatively, while apps are benefiting. If you normally order from a store near you, then you might want to check this page for information on what dispensaries are still open and delivering.
