Cannabis Company Buys Nipton, Calif. To Build Marijuana Paradise

Imagine a town where you can shop for cannabis products, attend marijuana cooking contests and take a bath in marijuana extract-infused water.

That’s the idea behind American Green’s purchase of an entire small town in the California desert. The company announced on Thursday it had spent US$5 million to buy the private land and businesses in Nipton, a town whose population is estimated at 20, in order to turn it into a marijuana tourism destination.
