A marijuana company has bought the entire town of Nipton, California for $5M in efforts to create a new cannabis tourism spot!
According to the Huffington Post, Phoenix-based company American Green announced that the town is set to become the “country’s first energy-independent, cannabis-friendly hospitality destination.” The company plans to spend $2.5 million in the next 18 months to rebuild Nipton into a “stoner’s paradise”, complete with culinary events, bed-and-breakfast lodging and cannabis-product retail stores.
Residents will have the freedom to light up whenever and wherever. “We are excited to lead the charge for a true ‘Green Rush,’” David Gwyther, president of American Green, said in a press release. “The Cannabis Revolution that’s going on here in the US, has the power to completely revitalize communities in the same way gold did during the 19th century.”
The company also plans to start combining local water with CBD ― the cannabinoid which allegedly has relieving effects that don’t get you high. They plan to distribute it all throughout California.
Roommates, who’s moving to Nipton?
