    Worlds First Cannabis Vending Machine Unveiled in Colorado.....

    A dispensary in Colorado is making the most of the state’s recent legalisation of cannabis by introducing the world’s first marijuana vending machines.

    The machine, called ZaZZZ, will work in a similar way to cigarette machines but includes new technology that requires would-be tokers to scan their driving licence (or other, similar documentation) before they can access the goods.



    Multiple cameras attached to the machine make sure the person swiping the card is definitely its owner and will deny access if there is no obvious match.

    American Green, the creator of the ZaZZZ, has labelled it "an automated, age-verifying, climate-controlled marijuana dispensing machine."

    For the moment, the automated dispensary is only for medical marijuana users, of which there are 2.5 million in the US, but plans are afoot to update them for full commercial use and to include "edibles" such as brownies and cookies.

    The unveiling of the machine comes on the heels of news that Colorado collected £1.2 million in taxes from recreational marijuana suppliers in January; the suppliers themselves rung up $14 million in sales......

    World


    I never thought I would see the day. When they came out with Vending Machines to sell Marijuana. But here it is.....April 14 2014.

    For myself.....I am not against those that are into Marijuana. Medical or recreational. But I do think there has been some falsehoods put out there with the legalization of it. Moreover here Right before the final deadline on taxes, Colorado releases these numbers and is celebrating over them. Now while they gained revenue thru this endeavor. IMO the numbers are not all that great. 1.2 Mil in taxes. I am wondering the cost of legalization and with regulation, what the percentage is on if they are in the red or actually gained.

    The next step is to have these machines for recreational users. Already some are saying they have them in Bars ready to go. Yet have not sold thru this means due to the law. Now while I believe there is more good that is associated with Marijuana.....I have some concerns about access to it by Kids. Granted, I was a kid when I first came into contact with it and began growing up with it. Vending machines.....to me presents a problem with this. As this opens up businesses to more possibilities with crime. As in theft.....armed and unarmed. Despite the concern we know it will end up becoming a reality.

    So.....then I would be adamant about No Vending machines being placed in Businesses around schools. What is your take upon the matter and what say ye?

    I think it's pretty neat.

    That won't help at all. If the kids are that set on trying something stupid with the machines, it won't matter how close they are.

    Just another reason to never step foot in Colorado again, or Washington State (for the first time), when crap like this comes along.

    Pennsylvania used to have wine vending machines that did pretty much the same thing. The were later removed when people stopped trying to use them. Government requirements were so onerous that you had to put in your license and blow into a receptacle and if you "passed" you could select your wine.

    That's another commodity I would never agree to having in a vending machine.... alcohol.

    I bet you are against those condom machines in the men's room too.

    When the state is being challenged for their control of alcohol, they begin to seek small compromises to maintain their monopoly.

    Yes I am.

    State control of alcohol, like marijuana, should come down to one issue.... One bullet or two for anyone found posessing the ****.

    The Chinese must be rubbing their hands in joy thinking about millions of Americans high on weed.

    Yep. Just more worthless, useless, and unproductive Americans. Not like that's anything new in the last 50 years.
