Zzazz: First pot vending machine debuts in Colorado marijuana dispensary

As Colorado continues its experiment as one of the first states to allow legal marijuana use and sales, a "high" tech solution is coming to dispensaries.

The vending machine will make pot purchases faster and easier, without being accessible to children.

Stephen Shearin is C.O.O. of the company unveiling the machine, called "Zzazz".

It's the first pot product vending machine which verifies a user's age starting with their driver's license.

The Zzazz will not be out in the public.

The machines can only be located inside a licensed dispensary.

Herbal Elements in Eagle Vail, Colorado will house the first one.

Owner Greg Honan is excited, "You can really stack inventory in a safe manner in a concentrated area."

The machine will track pot products by using radio frequency ID chips.

And they say with the security measures and locations only inside dispensaries, people shouldn't worry about pot getting into the wrong hands.

"I'm the father of a 12-year-old daughter and I wouldn't want her having access to it. So, we paid close attention to that," said Shearin.
