PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 30-11-18
NEW SERVICE ‘SAVE THE DRIVE’ CALLS FOR SAFER USE OF LEGAL MARIJUANA
Canada’s personal-shopping platform for cannabis-users
A new personal shopping platform is helping connect cannabis users with personal shoppers throughout Canada. With the aim of reducing instances of cannabis-impaired driving, Save The Drive first launched in Winnipeg in mid-November 2018. With hopes to be available throughout the country in the new year, this ambitious new project provides the ideal solution to the increasingly dominant problem of driving under the influence.
The recent re-release of the Canadian Cannabis Survey, first announced in 2017, marks a significant compilation of data relating to the cannabis market – with figures applicable to both medical use and recreational use. Amongst other interesting findings, the study reports that 40% of respondents admitted to driving a vehicle within just two hours of cannabis consumption. This is a striking statistic, as cannabis usage is known to cause impaired senses, with such drivers therefore posing a real risk to road safety. Thankfully Save The Drive founder and CEO Chanel Graham is working tirelessly to spread awareness of the company’s pioneering new service, which could make inebriated driving a thing of the past. By allowing users to get the products they want, without risking their safety or the safety of those around them, Save The Drive fills a gap in the market and addresses a very real concern with a responsible and responsive service.
Save The Drive is being rolled out in many cities across Canada – and getting started is simple. Users simply log-on to the website and state their location, before being connected with a personal shopper who can then go to the selected dispensary and shop for the customer’s choice. Safety and security are paramount for the team at Save The Drive, ensuring the service is legal, efficient and effective.
“We have safeguards in place to ensure everyone who uses the service is the legal age to consume,” says Chanel. “We require photo ID to be submitted via the platform, and each shopper verifies this ID at the door as a secondary protective measure. We’re dedicated to ensuring a safer alternative to getting behind the wheel and becoming a potential risk to public safety.”
