Colorado 'Patients' May Soon Get Marijuana From Vending Machines

This should end well.

People in Colorado may soon have an ultra-convenient option to buy their pot: a vending machine that dispenses medical marijuana and THC-laden snacks.

The machine, called the ZaZZZ, was unveiled at an event in Avon, Colo., over the weekend. Its creators told NPR that the machine uses biometrics to verify a customer's age. It's also climate-controlled to keep the products fresh.

These things are going to need more security than an ATM just to keep the delinquent teens at bay. And please, remember, don't enjoy your "prescription" past its freshness date.

The upside here: the first person who can place a snack vending machine next to one of these will be able to buy an island with the revenue.
