Seattle residents can now buy medical marijuana through the user-automated vending machine technology. American Green Inc., the Company behind the machine introduced it as the first age-verifying, climate-controlled self-service dispensary.
The machine stocks a wide range of medicinal and recreational marijuana flowers, pot-infused edibles, and merchandise and uses an ID-scanner to verify a buyer’s identity and age before dispensing the drug.
The company plans to place machines in Washington State, Colorado, California, Michigan, Rhode Island, and Alaska.
Given the demise of the cigarette vending machine, one could ask whether this new technology could cause the re-birth of cigarette vending in Canada.
