Is there anything you can not get from a vending machine these days? The first marijuana vending machine–at least, in Colorado–was recently rolled out on the patio of Montana’s Smokehouse in Avon. It’s different from other pot-dispensing vending machines in the sense that it’s accessible by anyone. For example, marijuana vending machines already exist in California, but they’re often located behind counters so you wouldn’t be able to dispense it yourself.
However, even though access to the machine isn’t limited, access to marijuana is. Only those who are medical marijuana cardholders will be able to dispense the goods, since the machine is equipped with a scanner that verifies the person’s ID first before dispensing anything.
Stephen Shearin, who is the COO of Tranzbyte, explains that he believes the machine will be a lot of help for folks who might feel shy having to buy marijuana, even though they’re doing so legally.
