Seattle’s first medical pot vending machines

Seattle now has the first medical marijuana vending machines in Washington State, although a person must have their medical marijuana card checked before being able to buy anything.

The machines called ZaZZZ are produced by the technology company, American Green Inc., which plans to install plant five more of them in Seattle and Washington state, as well as other states where medical marijuana is legal. The machines, which are located in licensed medical marijuana dispensaries, are stocked with cannabis flower, vaporizer pens, hemp-oil energy drinks, and more.

Voters in a state of Washington legalized recreational marijuana in 2012, the same year it became legal in Colorado.

Currently, medical marijuana is legal in 23 states.
