It’s every stoner’s dream – a marijuana vending machine, preferably placed right next to another one dispensing crisps and chocolate bars.

But this ‘Autospense’ machine lets registered users of the drug pick up their prescriptions, 24 hours a day.
Sixteen US states – as well as Washington DC – allow patients with certain medical conditions to buy small quantities of cannabis.
Hundreds of dispensaries have popped up across the country, but now a US firm has decided to cut out the middle man.
Customers get PINs and cards to access to the Autospense, which offers a host of pot menu options. But The Dispensary Group, which makes the machines, doesn’t let just anyone use them.
The machines are put behind cages that need a registration card to get past, while fingerprint authentication, CCTV and locks provide extra security.
The company said the machines ‘introduce a higher standard of efficiency to a market known for being chaotic, poorly managed and counter culture’. It charges up to £1,235 a month to lease the machines.
