Marijuana might soon be going the way of the Sprinkles cupcake -- KTLA reports that a Hollywood-based company that sells a pot vending machine for folks who have medical marijuana cards might be expanding.

The machine, made by a company called MedBox, is already around in some states. Patients have to scan a fingerprint in order to access its contents. Now, states like Colorado and Washington that recently legalized medical weed are considering getting their hands on the box as well.

Some medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles already have the machines.
