Pot Vending Machine Introduced in Colorado

By  | 

A town in Colorado is home to the first pot vending machine.

The makers of Zazzz say the high-tech machine makes it faster and easier for people to purchase pot products, while keeping marijuana out of the hands of kids.

Users have to swipe their driver's license. The machine then reportedly uses a series of cameras and bio-metric technology to make sure the license matches the person standing in front of the vending machine.

The vending machines will be located in licensed dispensaries. The first one is in Herbal Elements in Eagle-Vail.

The machine's creators also say it can track pot products using radio frequency ID chips, reducing the risk of theft.
