Medical marijuana, and right here in our own California. But it’s not so easy either:
…you can’t just walk in,
drop a few coins and roll out with a bag of weed. The machines are
situated in dispensaries, and surrounded by armed guards. We suspect
the latter is to stop the machines getting ripped off, not to harass
the legitimate users.
So how do you get your
fix? You need to be preapproved by your doctor and then give a
fingerprint. After that you get a card detailing your prescription.
Head to the machine, 24-7, and pick up your baggie.
The article details many other interesting vending machines, of course with an emphasis on Japan. Here are my previous posts on vending machines.
