The Arizona-based cannabis product maker, American Green Inc., just bought a small town in San Bernardino County for a cool $5 million.
Why, you ask? The company plans to use the 150 acre city of Nipton, California to create a marijuana-friendly tourist site. As reported by Bloomberg News, features for the site will include offering cannabis-infused water, pot product retail stores and edibles for patrons. American Green’s 18 month, $1.5 million development plan is a unique strategy in expanding its recreational pot customer base. And as businesses acclimate California’s new market for recreational pot, this could be the first of many innovative ways to market to potential customers, especially those who don’t usually partake.
