Portland, Ore. eases regulations to allow marijuana delivery

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Residents of Portland, Oregon, could get marijuana products delivered right to their doors.

State officials are making plans to do just that. Earlier this week, Portland commissioners voted to ease regulations on cannabis, allowing "delivery-only" marijuana retailers. 

Shop owners say security is their biggest concern. 

"It's a cool direction to go, but I think that it requires a lot of legislation. It's not like delivering pizza," said Casey Arbogast of Northwest Releaf. "I'm sure a lot of people would, you know, love the convenience of delivery, but not everyone is trustworthy."

The new marijuana delivery service is expected to start in 2017.
