American Green names Canadian distributor of biometrics-based marijuana vending units
Dispension Industries Incorporated will be the exclusive Canadian distributor of American Green’s Verified Identity Dispenser.
The Verified Identity Dispenser was developed for the safe and secure management of regulated products, including cannabis products and pharmaceuticals. Prior to machine access, registered users are verified by scanning their finger using industry leading vascular biometric technology.
“To comply with pending Canadian cannabis regulations and the requirements set forth by our government there is only one system that we feel can meet and exceed their objectives, and that is the VID”, said Corey Yantha, president of Dispension Industries.
“We have been confident in this market segment for nearly ten years,” added David Gwyther, president and chairman at American Green. “It was only a matter of time before the demand found its way to us and the AGM [the Verified Identity Dispenser or VID in Canada].”
The first machines to arrive in Canada are earmarked for viewing and demonstration to the public, private sector, and key stakeholders in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
