A cannabis company has bought the town of Nipton, California, in hopes of turning it into a marijuana paradise of sorts.

The town was purchased by American Green. The town includes an Old West-style hotel, a handful of houses, an RV park and a coffee shop. It is best known for selling lottery tickets.

 American Green says it plans to expand a farm in Nipton and bottle and sell cannabis-infused water from Nipton's aquifer.
