Cannabis delivery and distribution services present unique compliance concerns, particularly when it comes to choosing the right vehicle with the right specifications. Regulations often provide specific regulatory requirements that focus on vehicle security and employee safety. Here are some of the most common themes you’ll come across in the United States:
- The vehicle shouldn’t have any cannabis-related markings on its exterior, nor should any cannabis or cannabis products be visible from the exterior. The cannabis industry infamously deals in cash, and delivery and distribution drivers are often carrying it.
- Product should be secured within the vehicle via a lock box, container, or cage.
- Some jurisdictions go as far as requiring vehicles to be equipped with a GPS device to keep tabs on drivers’ current location, as well for recording a history of all locations traveled to.
