Mar 25, 2020 Science Writer

Many state governments have since deemed medical marijuana workers as “essential,” but their regulations are by no means uniform.  

As of March 24, 2020, not every state has implemented stay-at-home orders. But, for those that have, the coronavirus-related rules cannabis companies must now abide by are as follows:

. California

from the City of Los Angeles, issued last Thursday, said that the city considered all cannabis dispensaries and related services to be included within the essential healthcare sector, and so should remain open.

And in a clarification document published over the weekend, California Governor Gavin Newsom included cannabis retailers and other workers in the supply chain supporting the cannabis retail business, as “essential” under the official state policy.

. Colorado

Colorado Governor Jared Polis issued on March 20 temporarily allowing curbside delivery outside cannabis dispensaries, and giving approval to doctors to issue medical cannabis cards remotely using telemedicine consultations.

A has designated cannabis dispensaries as “critical retail,” meaning that they can operate as normal while other industries must reduce their workforce, however this designation only applies to medical cannabis operations.
