Uber is interested in the “types of deliveries that a high percentage of consumers are going to want delivered fast into their home and are quite frequent,” which includes weed.

Your future cannabis purchase may be as easy as ordering take-out. The CEO of Uber said that the company would “absolutely” explore including marijuana deliveries to its services once the drug has been legalized federally.

Dara Khosrowshahi explained in an interview with CNBC that while the company’s current focus of interest lies in mobilizing passengers and delivering groceries and alcohol, once marijuana is legalized, providing delivery of another good could absolutely be an option. This question was asked in light of marijuana’s legalization in New York.

Uber has been one of the most rapidly expanding companies in the country, having recently acquired Drizly and Postmates, big names when it comes to food and alcohol delivery.
