I wonder how long it would take for the DEA to seize it.

Doesn’t really sound like the Californicators are taking the War on Drugs(TM) very seriously.....

“Medical” marijuana isn’t a prescription.

"I wonder how long it would take for the DEA to seize it."

If the DEA does nothing to the live persons at the dispensary, why would you think they would be more vigilant against a machine?

I doubt it.

I think one of those machines has been in the lobby of the California State Legislature for several years now?

But isn’t most of California a smoke free zone? Where would someone be allowed to smoke medical marijuana?

Nope. Are you thinking of tobacco-free zones?

So you could smoke in public places so long as you’re smoking medical marijuana?

In willful violation of federal law. Cool.

Feh. Weed is so yesterday. These days, the good stuff is in Mom and Dad’s medicine cabinet.

A few years ago, I would have been outraged.

Now, I really don't care what other people choose to eat, drink, smoke, drive or screw.

Nor do I care how they choose to invest their current earning capacity or what they do in the future.

I just want to be left alone to pursue life and liberty.

I agree, let's overdose on Oxycontin instead.

I wonder if the machine will dispense medical Cheetos and Snickers too.

They probably make you smoke it inside your home.

Its a crying shame you can't smoke a legal substance in a bar or restaurant.

Jesus can take me now. I have gone to heaven.

I’m imagining a “patient” plunking nickels and dimes into the machine for an hour then coming up five cents short on a $300 dollar ounce.

Oh, now, hey, this is the ZENITH of brilliance; the very apex of human intellect!

Everywhere they install one of these machines will instantly become a “hot” zone for robbery. Why go roll old ladies heading back from cashing their welfare checks when you can stake out the local pot machine and have a steady stream of cash-rich targets marching right up to you all day?

Oh, so then they’ll say, “No problem. We’ll install a security camera to watch the pot machine so we can catch anybody who messes with the customers.” Just one problem with that: the camera might discourage muggings, but it’ll discourage customers even more. Who wants their strung out mug captured on video buying a fresh bag when that video could easily get snagged by the DEA?

As it is, you just know that people using these machines are going to be looking around for Allen Funt hanging out the door of a black helicopter.

There’s obviously stellar intelligence behind this.
