Seattle Dispensaries to Get Drone Deliveries Soon
The future of delivery is arriving at Seattle cannabis dispensaries, perhaps by March of this year. According to a post on KIRO Radio’s site, Seattle-based GRN Holdings is planning to facilitate B2B cannabis product deliveries to local Seattle, Washington dispensaries by March.
The drones they’re planning to use were originally designed form military deployment and will have iPads onboard to facilitate on-site payments. The drones will be operated by highly-trained pilots, according to the post. CEO of GRN, Justin Costello, is quoted in the article as saying, “It has been hard for me to keep this project a secret, because it is so cool. This is the boldest move yet in the [cannabis] industry we have gotten involved with.”
Drone deliveries are expected to cost a tenth of what van deliveries currently cost.
