The Marijuana ATM

“Day or night he’ll be there any time at all, Doctor Robert”- Doctor Robert, The Beatles

Every once in a while I read about the usage of marijuana as a medical treatment. It always seemed kind of funny to me that a drug which is considered illegal for recreational and social use is approved when prescribed by a doctor. Who is this…Doctor Robert?

Newly approved are the new marijuana dispensing machines that shell out vacuum sealed reefer day or night. These are 24 hour vending machines which may not be face recognizing but are still secured to keep the non-patients out.

Looked after by two security guards at all times, the AVM has some criteria for granting your needed fix. First of all, an approved prescription for the dosage in question. Although you can purchase 3.5 or 7 grams amounts, there is a maximum of 1 ounce a week (I can hear the patients begin their complaints already…). In addition, there is a finger print reader to make sure you are who you say you are, and a prepaid credit card that consist of your entire profile. I guess using Mom’s credit card for this one is out of the question.

Various vending machines are popping up everywhere. It seems that for the “connected” few, this will be another vending machine stop on their way. There are the ones which sell MP3 players for the music, now the marijuana for the fix, the candy for the hunger, and even condoms just in case. If you weren’t able to use the condoms, in the future there are plans for some other prescribed drugs, such as Viagra. It looks as if an entire package is taking form.

So for any of you who cannot sleep and must have your pot fix, hit up the new Marijuana Vending machine for your prescribed dosage.
