Marijuana company buys California town, plans pot paradise
Published on Aug 13, 2017
Some towns and cities have adopted medical marijuana laws either in favor or against incoming marijuana businesses, but one cannabis technology and grow company decided to purchase a whole town in hopes of creating a one-of-a-kind community for cannabis lovers. Tourists will be able to enjoy lodging, mineral baths, retail marijuana shops, and a unique eco-cannabis experience for the "conscious cannabis consumers".The town of Nipton in California, near the Nevada border, will surely be making a big transition over the next two years and will likely become a tourist hot spot for cannabis lovers. The company initially wanted to produce cannabis-infused bottled water in the small town, but now has big dreams for what the town could become.
The company plans to make Nipton the country’s “first energy-independent, cannabis-friendly hospitality destination,” American Green said in a statement.
American Green said it will initially focus on bottling cannabis-infused water in the town. The production of marijuana edibles and the cultivation of cannabis won’t be far behind in American Green’s 18-month, $2.5 million development time frame
