Uber Eats customers in Canada are now able to order cannabis on the app.
Starting today (November 22), users in Ontario can select either the ‘cannabis’ category or type ‘Tokyo Smoke’ in the search bar to make an order for weed. Customers will be asked to confirm their age, before being directed to the menu.
Uber Eats’ partnership with Tokyo Smoke doesn’t include delivery so customers will have to pick up their order from the Tokyo Smoke store.
It’s the first time Uber has offered direct access to buying the class-B drug.
The move comes after Canada legalised recreational cannabis in October 2018, with 2021 sales of the drug expected to reach $4 billion in the country.
Uber hopes its partnership with Tokyo Smokes will enable Canadian adults to buy safe, legal cannabis.
