American Green is an Arizona-based brand that has manufactured the first consumer-operated marijuana vending machine. Currently installed in Washington's Seattle Caregivers dispensary, the ZaZZZ machine doles out medical marijuana and features unique personal identification verifying technology that removes the concern around the machine being accessed by those under 18 and without a "green card."

The innovative concept is sure to gain notoriety and continued relevance given the current movement toward legalization of cannabis in the US and elsewhere around the world. This unique opportunity is a great example of the convergence of different patterns, namely automated retail and cannabis as a healthy lifestyle choice, in several industries coming together to create a cutting edge product.
