Pot vending machines to start rolling into Canada after firm partners with U.S. company
The marijuana vending machine is coming to Canada, says a U.S. company that developed the world’s first automatic pot dispenser under a co-founder who was recently convicted of unrelated fraud charges.
Medbox Inc. said it has partnered with a Canadian firm licensed under new Health Canada medical-marijuana rules, partly with the goal of introducing its dispensing equipment here.
The devices, which automatically fill cannabis orders and spit out a vial with the requested product, are actually designed to add security to the legally sensitive process, said Medbox executives Wednesday. They have a vault-like, armoured structure, a fingerprint-identification feature and software that permanently records transactions. (Photo: Peter Bennett/Ambient Images/Newscom)
