America is set to get its first-ever drive-thru weed store when a new business opens its windows in Colorado next month.
The business, called Tumbleweed Express, will allow customers to order their marijuana just like they would order food at McDonald’s or KFC. Officials in Parachute, the small town in western Colorado where the drive-thru will be located, granted the license yesterday.
The group behind the venture, Green Cross Colorado LLC, hopes to open in March 2017. However, the drive-thru will still need to follow the strict rules governing the substance, including barring anyone under 21 years old from the premises, even if they are in the backseat of the car.
Parachute had previously banned all legal selling of marijuana, despite the state’s liberal stance on the substance. Officials repealed the ban in June 2015, and now roughly 30 percent of Parachute’s sales tax revenue in 2016 came from legal marijuana, reports USA TODAY.
We suspect this will be the first of many across marijuana-friendly states. Stay tuned for more information.
