Is Shipping Marijuana Legal?

Green shipping

There are many states that have legalized the use of medicinal marijuana, with some moving toward legalized recreational use. As many individual states shift their perspective on the legality of marijuana, some individuals may wonder if shipping the product has also become legal.

Under federal law and USPS regulations, shipping marijuana still remains illegal, including marijuana labeled for medicinal purposes. While individual state policy may continue to fluctuate, sending marijuana through the mail remains entirely illegal.

What do you think about shipping marijuana in the mail?

    It would still be revenue …right?

    If it’s legal in some states, it should be able to be shipped in those states. We get our prescriptions through the mail and I don’t see any difference. I agree that it would still be revenue. Why give the business to the other delivery companies?

    If it’s legal in a state, it should be able to transport within that state. I can understand not shipping it through states where it’s illegal.
