A Keurig Machine for Weed


Will someone invent a goddamned Keurig machine for smoking pot?

Andy Kush at Gawker has something to say about it:

Besides sounding like a pretty boring way to get stoned, a pod-based delivery system for weed would seem to carry all the same problems as a pod-based delivery system for coffee: overpriced product, non-biodegradable materials, tons and tons of extra waste. If the similarities between CannaKorp and Keurig are really all they’re cracked up to be, there will also be the problem of pot that tastes like microwaved cardboard. Stoners’ distrust of corporate powers and embrace of the environment is only matched by our love of convenience. We can only hope the tree-hugger side wins out in the end.

I’ve never thought much of Keurig machines, and I don’t think much of this incarnation, either. I guess you could say I’m old fashioned when it comes to weed. Not that I smoke it or anything, no, not at all. After all, as a pain patient, I’m subjected to drug tests these days.

    I don’t see how this is much different from just grabbing a hunk and stuffing it into your volcano and turning it on.

    I’m not particularly fond of the holy smoke but when I have guests over that are, I find it an amusing ritual to prepare a proper puff with dessert. Water pipe with crushed ice and bourbon is my current favorite. Uh, hypothetically.

    The other problem is that such a device would dispense a standard amount, and a lot of people are going to want half, or a tenth, that much, or one and a third times as much. My problem with a vaporizer was that the smallest amount I could easily get from it was often more than I wanted.

    With caffeine, there’s at least the possibility of buying or brewing iced tea, drinking a couple of ounces, and putting the rest aside for later. I suspect that a machine like this would have the options of ingesting more than you wanted, or wasting a significant amount.
