The world’s first weed-dispensing vending machine

‘[The user] would swipe their driver’s license at which point multiple cameras would allow us to use some advanced biometrics to make absolutely certain that the person who swiped the card is the owner of that card,’ Mr Shearin explained to 9News while speaking at the launch.

‘I’m a father of a 12-year-old daughter and I wouldn’t want her having access to it, so we paid close attention to that.’

For those who do meet the right criteria however, it’s a simple case of: ‘Swipe ID and get verified. Select products and pay. Retrieve products and depart using appropriate bagging solution.’

Hopes for a greener future: California-based Medbox (left) currently caters for the medical-use only niche but ZaZZZ (right) hopes that it can capitalize on Colorado’s legalization of marijuana for recreational use too

The machine is currently housed at Herbal Elements, an Avon medical dispensary; so will still not yet be available for recreational users ‘at this point’ – essentially until the company feels it’s ready.

Only last year, Bruce Bedrick, CEO of Medbox, a California-based weed vending machine for medical use only, predicted that the transition from machines such as his, to those available to the general public such as the ZaZZZ model, was ‘a couple of years down the road’.

Some people want to see this free-flowing marijuana. They want to go from federal and state ban to marijuana for everybody

‘Some people want to see this free-flowing marijuana. They want to go from federal and state ban to marijuana for everybody,’ Mr Bedrick – also known as ‘the Steve Jobs of medical marijuana dispensing’ – said to The Huffington Post.

‘We don’t believe that can happen. In order to gain respect and trust, it’s better to go through gradual, medical adoption.’

However, since both Colorado and Washington State recently legalized the drugs recreational use, it’s likely that a whole wash of ambitious companies will be hot on the heels of ZaZZZ’s business model, and sooner than many predicted.
