Weed company buys entire town in California

The old mining town of Nipton is set to be California’s first cannabis friendly municipality

US weed company American Green has just bought the entire town of Nipton in California for $5m (USD).

Their plan is to make the town into a cannabis friendly municipality, which sounds frickin awesome. Alongside a cannabis friendly culture, the company plans to invest in tourism and ecological sustainability in order to revitalise the old mining town.

“We are excited to lead the charge for a true green rush,” American Green’s president David Gwyther said in a statement to Time.

“The cannabis revolution that’s going on here in the US has the power to completely revitalise communities in the same way gold did during the 19th Century.”
