    Pot vending machines in the works
    A California company is preparing for the recreational use of marijuana in Colorado and Washington by creating dispensing devices for adults.
    The November elections legalized recreational marijuana use in Washington and Colorado. And now a California company has plans to adapt the vending machines it makes for medical marijuana groups so they can eventually be used by the general public.
    Medbox (MDBX) marijuana dispensers are kept behind the counter at medical marijuana facilities -- where they can track sales, prevent theft and ensure those facilities comply with local laws. The current version of the machines, according to Medical Daily, "rely on a fingerprint scan that verifies the identity of the patient, which is linked with a prescription kept on file. The company also helps operators become licensed in states that have licensing laws."
    Medbox, meanwhile, is preparing its vending machines for the launch of those newborn recreational pot industries in Washington and Colorado.

    Now how will the machine determine who is an adult? maybe scan a drivers license, or finger prints? Kids can always circumvent the system wink

      I wonder how they keep ppl from smoking it while they drive home from the vending machine. Ive never tried drugs, but I would assume it would affect you somewhat like alcohol no?

      Generally these machines are placed inside of a medicinal pot warehouse where you purchase your joint and have to smoke it there.  How do I know this?  I worked for a large insurance carrier who insured such medicinal pot warehouses.  The joints are pre rolled and placed in pharmacy jars where you can pick which 'flavor' you want.  Purple Haze, Maui etc.  It's not like you walk up with your prescription and walk out the door with your pot.  There is a tv, couches, chairs etc where you can sit, relax and get high.  Quite an interesting set up to say the least.  We used to laugh about it all of the time.

        Did these smokers get some type of highness test? lol Driving high is just as bad as driving drunk....

          Sounds like a real problem to me, too.  Go in, intentionally take a drug that will impair driving ability and go drive.

          I had a coworker whose wife went to jail (DUI) for causing an accident after leaving the dentist office - although she claimed the dentist told her she could drive after being sedated, he said he told her not to.  Not much difference, seems to me.

    Will they have brownies and cookies too? Nothing like a chewy pot brownie washed down with a white russian (whole milk, none of that skim crap).
