Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's Krayzie Bone is looking to make a quick buck after reportedly investing into a personalized vending machine targeted at any and all marijuana enthusiasts.
Details of what all Krayzie's vending machine is packed with have surfaced.
The Bone Thugs-n-Harmony rapper says a fan gifted him a personalized vending machine ... and it inspired him. Krayzie says he's in talks to put the machines in a few L.A. stores -- including weed dispensaries. He's really serious about it. He's already ordered more vending machines for the launch. Of course the machines will be filled with stoner favorites -- Funyuns, Pop Tarts, Twinkies. (TMZ)
Colorado made history earlier this year by allowing residents 21 years or older to purchase marijuana for their own purposes.
Colorado's ambitious experiment in cannabis policy hit a historic milestone Wednesday, when licensed stores began making the first legal sales of recreational marijuana anywhere in the world. At least 37 stores across the state were fully licensed and opened to sell marijuana to anyone 21 or over for any purpose, according to official lists and Denver Post research. Sales began at 8 a.m., and activists -- who passed the marijuana-legalization measure in November 2012 that made the sales possible -- arranged a ceremonial "first purchase" at the stroke of 8 at the Denver store 3D Cannabis.

The LOX's Styles P previously spoke to SOHH about the state's unexpected decision to welcome marijuana recreational sales.
"You know I was [excited when Colorado legalized marijuana]," Styles told SOHH. "I was glad for them. I say congratulations to them! That's a big step, and I hope it spreads. I pray [one day] it [hits New York]!" (SOHH)
New York rapper Smoke DZA previously told SOHH he feared marijuana becoming legal.
"I hope not," Smoke told SOHH when asked if he thinks marijuana will ever be legalized. "I would rather it be decriminalized than legalized. My whole thing is, on that subject, is when you legalize something, you give [the government] a chance to give you whatever they want. It's just like when Yahoo took over Myspace, it wasn't that cool any more. Decriminalizing would be the way to go because you could smoke your weed wherever you want and nobody could tell you anything. That's decriminalizing something. That's not getting penalized. But when you legalize it and you're able to buy it over the counter, they're sprinkling other stuff in the product. It's probably not the same [levels of] THC you're going to get. I'm not into legalizing, I'm into decriminalizing." (SOHH)
