Niche Biz: Pot Supplies Vending Machine

It seems there is a vending machine for everything now-a-days. There’s a machine that’ll make you a pizza in minutes, the vending machine that’ll let you break ceramics, and even one that will dispense live crabs. With the rise of medical marijuana, it should come as no surprise that a vending machine for smoking accessories is also making an appearance.

With a polite ‘thank you’ from a vending machine after purchase, the brainchild of inventor David Levine comes to life.

“This machine will serve the need of providing accessories to patients,” explained Levine.

It’s called the Cann Can. It stands for cannabis container. But it’s not designed to sell marijuana.

“I wanted to make this a more convenient thing for accessories,” said Levine.

Levine tells me it will sell legal items like lighters, pipes and rolling papers; things to help in the consumption of marijuana.

“I don’t want people to have to worry about going to 15 different places to assemble a smoking kit. I want them to have it right here,” said Levine.

And so far, he told me, the response has been great.

The machine can be put inside 125 dispensaries approved in Arizona.

He’s also had interest from other states with similar medical marijuana laws.

“If you look at it from a bigger perspective, we are just at the beginning of the mainstreaming of marijuana for consumption,” said Levine.
