Video: First ever cannabis vending machine opens for business in Seattle

Roll up, roll up; marijuana vending machines are here.

The state of Washington legalised the recreational use of cannabis last year and now, the city of Seattle will roll out its first cannabis vending machines.

It's not that simple though. You can't just walk up and stick some money in like conventional vending machines. You have to have ID, man!

The machine will use an ID-scanner to check users’ age and dispense a range of medicinal and recreational marijuana flowers, pot-infused edibles and merchandise.

Here's a little demonstration of how the ID works on the machine and how you will never be joint-less in Seattle...
