A company called American Green Machine is working on a more convenient way to buy marijuana or booze.
It's developing a vending machine that uses a biometric scanner to verify age, helping folks avoid long concession lines at the ballpark or perhaps letting a weed dispensary sell more buds.
Also on today's podcast, we talk about the annual Cyber Defense Exercise and a startup CEO's accusations that Amazon may have copied his company's device when it made the Echo Show. Plus, check out our coverage from the Microsoft Build conference.
