The largest recreational marijuana store in the country just opened what it claims is the first fast food-style weed drive-thru.
NuWu Cannabis Marketplace aims to serve customers in less than a minute from the time they place their orders from their cars, store representatives told the Las Vegas Sun. The dispensary poached drive-thru managers from fast food chains to handle the parking lot chaos and take orders while customers are in line.
The Las Vegas Sun reports that NuWu’s drive-thru is a converted $30,000 bank teller window, made of bullet-proof glass and framed with bullet-proof Kevlar material. Surveillance cameras monitor both inside and outside of the impenetrable window.
This massive weed marketplace, located on Native American tribal lands in Las Vegas, opened its doors on Oct. 16. Benny Tso, the chairman of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe, told the Los Angeles Times at the end of the month that the dispensary was drawing in 300 to 500 customers each day.
Customers in vehicles will be able to choose from a limited selection of the dispensary’s expansive inventory. The drive-thru will offer about 15 flower, edible and concentrate products.
Licensed dispensaries have been legally able to sell marijuana for recreational use to anyone over 21 years old since July 1.
