VIREO TO EXPAND HOME DELIVERY OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA TO BRONX, STATEN ISLAND AND WESTCHESTER
Vireo to Expand Home Delivery of
Medical Marijuana to Bronx, Staten Island and Westchester
Delivery currently exists in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and parts of Suffolk County
New York, NY –Vireo Health of New York (“Vireo”), one of only five companies licensed by New York State to cultivate, manufacture and dispense medical marijuana, will expand its groundbreaking medical marijuana home delivery program to the Bronx, Staten Island and Westchester County beginning on Saturday, May 6.
“We are rapidly expanding our delivery capabilities to reach more of the New York City metro area,” said Ari Hoffnung, CEO of Vireo Health of New York. “Our delivery program has seen great success over the last few weeks, serving not only those patients who are home-bound or have trouble visiting a dispensary but also those who appreciate its convenience.”
Last month, medical marijuana home deliveries started in Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and parts of Suffolk County. The delivery zone will then expand into Manhattan. Over time, Vireo hopes to cover other areas throughout New York State, particularly in the Capital Region and Southern Tier.
The medical marijuana ‘from our greenhouse to your front door’ home delivery program was designed by a team of security experts, pharmacists and physicians to serve homebound patients with life-threatening and debilitating diseases, like Cancer, ALS and chronic pain.
Numerous measures have been taken to ensure the safety of patients and the delivery staff. In accordance with State regulations that prohibit outsourcing in New York’s ‘seed-to-sale’ medical marijuana industry, all deliveries will be handled exclusively by Vireo employees. The deliveries will be made by at least two employees, and company-owned delivery vehicles are outfitted with cutting-edge safety features, including GPS tracking devices.
Qualifying patients can register for the home delivery program online and use coupon code REGONLINE to receive a $10 discount off their first online order.
