Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi explained Monday that the company could start delivering cannabis once federal regulations are in place.
While several states have legalized marijuana, including Virginia, New York and New Jersey, cannabis remains illegal under federal law.
During an interview with TechCheck, Khosrowshahi said: ‘When the road is clear for cannabis, when federal laws come into play, we’re absolutely going to take a look at it.’
A total of 17 states and the District of Columbia have fully legalized marijuana, with New Mexico being the latest state to do so. A legal cannabis industry could generate $318million and more than 11,000 jobs in the state.
