Marijuana Firm Buys California Town; Plans to Turn It Into Tourist Destination

Marijuana Company Turning Entire Town Into Pot Tourism Destination Cannabis company buys desert town and plans to turn it into pot paradise

It sits 60 miles south of Las Vegas and about ten miles off Interstate 15.

And as of this week, Nipton has something else: a cannabis company for an owner, with designs on turning the hamlet into a pot-centric tourist destination.

Plans for the town include a facility to produce and bottle water infused with CBD, a cannabis component that does not produce a "high", as well as CBD-infused mineral baths, cannabis stores and artist-in-residence programs.

American Green said August 3 that it made a $5-million offer on the town of Nipton and its surrounding land. It went on the market previous year with an asking price of $5 million, though the amount American Green paid hasn't been announced.

American Green is purchasing the tiny town of Nipton, California, near the Nevada border, for about $5 million.

They also want to power the town with renewable energy.

Former Mexican President: Trump 'Trying to Save Face' With Voters
Fox didn't care that he was on live TV when he dropped the F-bomb, he has consistently said that Mexico won't be paying for no fucking wall and that's what he means at all times.

The town's current residents number fewer than two dozen.

"We are excited to lead the charge for a true 'Green Rush, '" said David Gwyther, chairman and president of American Green after the announcement that it had acquired the century-old community.

The southern Californian town's current owner, Roxanne Lang, will not reveal the price of the deal before the sale closes, but the property was listed at $5m (£3.8m) when it was up for sale past year.

One in five American adults can now legally consume the marijuana plant.

And for Nipton, a new owner means another chance to play host to a grand vision of the future.

"Things are evolving and the future is clear", Freeman told The New York Times in 2014.
