Last month I started working as a delivery driver for a cannabis service.
The Cannabis delivery service picks up orders from several local dispensaries including the ones that don’t regularly deliver.
The Cannabis delivery service charges a small fee for pick up from the local dispensaries. I wasn’t sure that I would earn a lot of money as a delivery driver, but I was very surprised by the tips. During the last month, I have made more than $1,000 in the tips that I receive at work and that is in addition to the hourly wage that I receive. The minimum hourly wage in Denver is $10 an hour. I receive that hourly wage plus all of my tips. It’s enough money to pay for my apartment in Denver as well as my car payment. Sometimes it is difficult to deliver orders on time when there is a lot of traffic in downtown Denver. During weekends when the Broncos play at home, delivery times are an hour or longer. The cannabis dispensary is a few miles away from the stadium and traffic is always a nightmare before and after the game. It took me almost an hour to deliver 3 cannabis orders that were only two miles from the store. I was frustrated and angry as I sat in traffic and watched people leisurely walk across the street while traffic was backed up for miles. At least the tips were pretty good that day. I even got a crisp $20 from a new patient that ordered from us for the first time.
