Can I Send My I.D. When I Get There?

After selecting a recreational cannabis delivery service to order from in Washington DC, the next step in the ordering process is to contact them. After a quick call or text to your chosen business, the responder will most likely request a copy of both your id (usually a driver’s license or other government-issued photo is) and a selfie of you holding the id. Many companies prefer to complete this step before the actual ordering and scheduling process for many reasons, like preventing illegal issues and for the safety of both yourself and the delivery person.

One of the most important reasons recreational delivery businesses request your identification as soon as possible is to simply verify your age and identity. Likewise, to other recreational programs, cannabis in DC is only considered legal for adults aged 21 or older. If an individual is found to have given cannabis to anyone younger than 21, they can be charged with major fines.

Because of the odd laws active in Washington DC, selling cannabis is still technically illegal, and any amount of cannabis sold by an individual can be charged with up to 5 years with the possibility of a $50,000 fine added onto their record as well. When minors are involved, these fines and penalties are automatically doubled. Minors are also banned from possessing paraphernalia related to cannabis as well, and with the strict threat of a 30-day incarceration and $100 fine, the local government apparently does a decent job keeping minors in line when it relates to cannabis.

After verifying the age on your identification, delivery businesses will likely check your identity to mainly ensure that you are who you say you are. Like many other processes, identity fraud is frowned upon (not to mention illegal) and by taking a selfie with your id, it restricts a scammer’s potential to pretend to be somebody they’re not and keeps delivery personnel safe. As most companies should, delivery services care about their employees’ safety while making their rounds, and by obtaining a copy of their customer’s id before they are even in the vicinity, another layer of protection is obtained for the employee. This permits the manager or owner to report the customer if anything goes awry, theft occurs, or any other worst-case scenario that could arise during a delivery.

Thankfully there haven’t been any dangerous incidents recently about cannabis deliveries in the DC area, and some lawmakers are even working towards creating another addition onto Initiative 71 making the act of obtaining recreational cannabis safer for both consumers and businesses. Proposed in 2019, the Safe Cannabis Sales Act essentially suggests legalizing recreational storefronts, which would allow governments to track and ensure the safety and quality of marijuana products, create a plethora of new jobs in the area, and continue to prevent sales and marketing ploys to minors as well. Currently, the status of the proposal is vague but definitely holds the potential to move up in the law-making process for the new year.
