Dispensaries Halt Recreational Cannabis Sales As Illinois Allows Curbside Delivery To Medical Users

Until March 30, workers will be allowed to go outside to patients’ cars

Illinois will allow marijuana dispensaries to take orders from medical patients outside of their shops — at the curb, or in the parking lot — to reduce the spread of the new coronavirus.

Meanwhile, more dispensaries in Chicago have stopped recreational sales until further notice.

The state’s Department of Financial and Professional Regulation issued guidance Monday to dispensaries on how to help contain COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus. Special effort is being made to protect medical patients, many of whom have compromised immune systems, but still need access to medical marijuana.

Typically, dispensaries are only allowed to distribute marijuana products inside a limited access area, as deemed by the state. But until March 30, dispensary workers will be allowed to go outside to medical patients’ cars or adjacent public walkways to take their order. They then must take the cash inside, get the product and bring it back out to the patient.
