America's First Consumer-Operated Marijuana Vending Machines Begin Shipping to Dispensaries Nationwide

TEMPE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- American Green (OTC Pink: ERBB) (PINKSHEETS: ERBB), the company behind The ZaZZZ marijuana vending machine has begun shipping the first of many machines nationwide last week, the first of which are going to medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado.

Since unveiling ZaZZZ in April to a large and eager crowd of spectators, investors, and members of the press at a popular marijuana dispensary, Herbal Elements in Eagle-Vail, Colorado, the demand for the first-ever consumer-operated, automated, ID verifying, marijuana vending machine has has continued to grow.

ZaZZZ allows dispensary customers to easily come and go by purchasing the cannabis or edibles of choice without having to wait in lines or have any personal interaction with the staff. It saves time for both customers and staff, while it helps increase steady revenue for the dispensaries.

Once a customer's identification card is scanned, the ZaZZZ process uses real-time verification to match the person with their ID. If there is a positive match, the customer can make a purchase using cash, bitcoin, and soon credit or debit, once banking regulations have adjusted. If there is not a positive ID match, ZaZZZ's security will prevent operation and the prospective customer will then be directed to speak with a staff member.

Product quality is paramount for both the dispensaries and the end customer. ZaZZZ machines are climate controlled to ensure only the freshest products are dispensed.

Colorado is the first state to begin receiving the machines which will be placed at Herbal Elements in Eagle-Vail and Doctors Orders, one of Denver's premier dispensaries.

"I believe that American Green's ZaZZZ will fit perfectly in our environment and can be easily and securely operated by our customers," said Josh Bartch, Doctors Orders' president. "I'm very excited that we will be the first dispensary in Denver to use what we believe will be a revolutionary machine."

"It's an exciting time and we, of course, are very happy to be moving ZaZZZ across the country into dispensaries who understand all of the possibilities that this technology offers," says Stephan Shearin, president at American Green. "We are committed to building strong long-term partnerships with dispensaries that will continue to scale revenue and profits for years to come."

Anyone who visits the American Green Headquarters in Tempe, Az. will be able to see ZaZZZ in complete working order dispensing non-marijuana products.
