Technology has changed the way we get high, forever

If you want to imagine the future of marijuana in the 2020s, picture a 3-D printer. 

Maybe it's in a kiosk at your local legal recreational dispensary; maybe, if you're a particular fan of greenery, it's in your home. Either way, it's pre-loaded with concentrated liquid forms of all  cannabinoids, the different kinds of molecules that make up marijuana.

Through Lobo, he created a genetic testing device that fits in the palm of a hand and uses cells obtained through a cheek swab to measure a person’s ability to metabolize THC — the main psychoactive component in cannabis — and determine someone’s predisposition to short- and long-term side effects.
