Vending Machines for Medicinal Marijuana Open Today in California

Users are Carefully Screened before they Can Use the Machines

Only in the U.S.A., Only in California

“Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door.”
–Ralph Waldo Emerson

It may not be a better mousetrap, but there’s a feeling that at least some people will be beating a path to the new marijuana vending machines that open today in California.

The first of their kind in the U.S.A–one speculates the world–the machines will dispense medicinal marijuana for patients who are prescribed marijuana for health reasons.

Patients have to jump through a few hoops before they can use the machines: they have to present a prescription, be photographed and be fingerprinted and then they are issued a pre-paid credit card that stores the dosage and type of drug prescribed.

Only in the U.S.

Only in California.

No, the machines can’t be used by the paperboy down the street to get ready for a “party hard” weekend–unless the paperboy has been prescribed the drug for health reasons.

At present, eleven states allow the medicinal use of marijuana, primarily for pain relief, but, in the land of the drug crusaders, it remains controversial. Although, one wonders why giving relief to, in some cases, terminally ill patients would cause anyone but drug warriors any cause for concern.
The machines may become a common sight across the US before long. Why?
