Courier License – Delivering Medical Cannabis and Paraphernalia:

The Courier License allows businesses to facilitate the delivery of medical cannabis, medical cannabis products, and paraphernalia.

This license type applies to online platforms that connect patients to retailers’ websites and third-party delivery services.
