A CBD store in Texas has started a drone delivery service to adhere to social distancing measures to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
John Elmore, the owner of Green Cross CBD in Austin, told broadcaster KTBC that he was sterilizing products and offering curbside pickup before he started drone deliveries.
“I was able to come up with a contraption where I could drop it in your front yard and unlatch and just take off,” Elmore said.
“The drone can hold up to 2 pounds safely,” Elmore said. “I don’t like to exceed that, but, yeah, that’s quite a bit of CBD.”Austin issued new social distancing rules for residents and business on March 21 to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. The rules encouraged retail establishments to “increase the use and capability of drive-thru, curbside, or delivery services.”
