As Canada inches towards marijuana legalization, the United States has pulled a little bit farther ahead, thanks to an innovation from the nation’s biggest recreational pot dispensary in Las Vegas.

NuWu Cannabis Marketplace, which makes its home on indigenous lands in Las Vegas, opened for business in the middle of October. According to Las Vegas Paiute Tribe chairman Benny Tso, by the end of the month, it was pulling in up to 500 customers every day. And now, those clients don’t even have to get out of their cars to avail themselves of the Marketplace’s offerings: the outfit has converted a $30,000 bank teller window, made of bullet-proof glass and framed with Kevlar, to ramp up the convenience factor for its patrons.
Hash-and-dash (sorry) artists need not apply: the booth sports surveillance cameras which keep an electronic eye on goings-on both inside and outside the impenetrable window, where staff who were lured away from their drive-thru management jobs at fast food joints (SORRY) aim to get product into the hands of mobile customers within a minute from the time their order is placed. The window offers a limited selection of the dispensary’s inventory, namely about 15 flower, edible and concentrate varieties.
