Imbue is a British-based street and guerrilla art project that concentrates on prints and subversive public projects. They sell prints and photographs of some of their work including this print of a pair of drug vending machines that purported to sell heroin and cocaine. Details on how many people actually bought one of the vending machine substances and what was actually in those packages were scarce. Stats for Drug Vending Machines Trending: Older & Mild
