Access to Marijuana by Minors Via Online Dispensaries

This cross-sectional study found that most online marijuana dispensaries lacked adequate age verification features and most accepted nontraceable payment methods, enabling youth to hide their transactions. Almost 1 in 5 online dispensaries required no formal age verification at any stage of the purchasing process. Limitations of the study included a small sample size and relatively short period of data collection, as researchers used limited search terms and may have been unaware of how to find additional online dispensaries.
