Stephen Shearin believes his company is evolving the marijuana industry by creating a vending machine for pot and pot products.

Shearin is the chief operating officer for Tranzbyte, a company that owns American Green. American Green is the manufacturer of a vending machine called the ZaZZZ, which starts by verifying a person’s age through their driver’s license.
