While Bitcoin’s future remains uncertain to say the least, it is at least possible to ease your mind while processing all of its swings in value over the last months while smoking some weed. In Colorado, the state legalized marihuana last on January 1st, it is now possible to purchase weed from a vending machine using BTC.
Many of jokes have been made about BTC’s popularity among hippies and free spirited thinkers, and that’s also a category of people that happens to like to smoke. Therefor it’s not a coincidence that Herbal Elements dispensary in Eagle-Vail received the first weed vending machine named ZaZZ.
Bitcoin will not be the only currency accepted by this machine as he it allows for the regular US dollars to be used. While cash is accepted credit cards are not because the United States still considers marihuana illegal on a federal level.
Using an E-wallet will speed up the process of buying marihuana in Colorado after configuring their account. There are usually long waits at marihuana dispensaries but this development could shorten that with yet another digital revolution.
