Colorado gets its first marijuana vending machine

Vending machines that serve up pot have existed for some time, but up until now have only lived behind counters at medical marijuana dispensaries. Now, the very first weed vending machine that customers can access has finally made its debut in Avon, Colorado. Herbal Elements, a local medical cannabis collective, today received a ZaZZZ vending machine manufactured by American Green. 

Happily last night in Avon, Colorado, a giant green machine was wheeled onto the patio of Montana’s Smokehouse to prepare for the official unveiling of Colorado’s first weed vending machine this afternoon. Not yet in use, but in the first stages of excitement-stirring, the ZaZZZ machine will provide the masses with edibles at ease in the near future. The catch is that only licensed medical marijuana cardholders can access the edibles within, and a valid ID will be scanned and verified. But barring that, the green goodies will flow.
