I still remember the cigarette vending machines down south.  I think it was the early 90's before they were formally banned.  It was definitely, 1992 when they started banning kids from smoking on school grounds at my HS.

This may turn out that some guy with an extra key snuck the malt liquor in the machine.  Not a stretch to get a key that may match other stuff.  Over a decade ago, working third shift cashiering at a 24/7 grocery store, I found out the override key for the register also worked for the claw machine.  It was really odd, since the claw machine didn't belong to the store, but I didn't mess with the machine.  It would've cost me my job.  25 cent dolls isn't worth getting fired over, just ask the night stocking crew at one of the other branches that all got canned.

If it does turn out to be someone sneaking malt liquor into vending machines, they need to string him up and beat him like a piñata. Seriously, what kind of Philistine drinks malt liquor?

They need a better picture of the Pepsi machine.  Someone rode a bike in front of the photographer right when the picture was snapped.

I'd rather my kids drink malt liquor than Pepsi. In moderation, anyway.

I remember seeing a cigarette machine in Maine in 1990. You can buy cigs in vending machines in Canada still, but only at bars, so you have to be 19 to get in anyhow (in my province) plus they're horrendously expensive in comparison to buying them at a shop

We had a sanctioned beer machine on a remote island job I worked, but that place is only visited by adults anyway, so think of the children isn't even a thing. It was a godsend on weekend days when you ran out of beer early in the afternoon and the bar didn't open until 8pm or so.

/Usually you didn't need the machine, somebody else would spot you a 12 pack from their stash
 
2013-02-28 10:46:06 AM
Not sure how it is nowadays but up into the 80's I was aware of a couple of firehouses that had soda machines that had one button dispensing beer.
 
2013-02-28 10:46:29 AM
Holland too. When I was a student in Nijmegen (1990s) we had a machine that dispensed cans of Heineken. Those professors would drink anything.

Heh, when I was in Tokyo, I found one with Suntory's "The Brew" in it. The name made me laugh so hard, I had to buy one.

Now they just need to find one dispensing orange juice.

Had one in our Frat house. Third floor. .75 for a can of "33"

My band was in a rehearsal space in Boston where the owner used to load up the slot for "Fresca" with Bud.

You obviously had to be "in the know" since no one with an active set of taste buds drinks Fresca.

I was a boy scout in Clifton Va. during the early 80's. We had some of our meeting at the firehouse. The soda vending machine had beer in it.

Trinidad made Fark, huh. Not proud of the reason, but its funny to see. I know exactly where that vending machine is. No, I did not know they had malt liquor in it. It probably didn't the last time I was over there. Yes, I am sure that someone either bought, stole, or traded weed for the key. They've probably been buying beer from the local corner store, fillinf up the machines, and pocketing the difference in price.

When I was in University our EE "clubhouse" had a vending machine that dispensed beer. We even had pre-loaded, magnetic strip cards we could use in lieu of money.

Had to check where abouts in Canada you live in, here in Ontario we can't buy smokes in bars or any vending machine, can't buy them in grocery stores or Shoppers Drug Mart either. Hell, in the variety stores where you can buy them the store owners have to keep the smokes hidden from sight. If you forget the name of the cigars or smokes you are buying you are out of luck for it is against the law for owners to actually show the packs.  It has happened to me before, trying to describe the cigar pack to the clerk who barely speaks english and can't just show you the cigar packs so you can pick it out.
   I used to go to the store to buy smokes for my mom when I was a kid, didn't even need a note.  50 cents a pack

The Coke machine in my barracks in Hanau, Germany dispensed Bud Ice. It was only used for emergecies.

Those were great.  There was a particular Waffle House my friends and I all hung out at because we were all 16-17 and nobody there gave a damn when we got a pack from the machine.

All beer with an ABV OF 6% and over is classified as malt liquer.

So... most all craft beer drinkers are Philistines

There are many bars in Atlanta that still allow smoking and have cigarette machines. However, those bars/restaurants are not allowed to have anyone under 18 in them. Good trade in my opinion.

I remember one at the Hard Rock Cafe in Memphis. Somewhere in 1996 or 1997. I remember because my friend paid $5 for a pack.

Vending machines in Japan legally sell beer.

and FYI, throughout the Caribbean region incl, St Thomas - unless some idiot changed the rules.

Banks?  Red Stripe?  Can't remember which but one of them has a twist off bottle opener molded into the bottom of the bottle. Never buy one, always buy two.

Would dearly love to flee this area and live there, even if  just for the attitude.

My policeman buddy belonged to the local FOP, their lounge had 3 soda machines that dispensed beer. I tells ya, you feel pretty damn safe drinking beer and playing cards at 4am Saturday morning with a bunch of cops.

Also, cans of cold beer for $1. Nice.

My first thought for some reason.
Only instead of dispensing cans of malt liquor, it dispensed cases of severe head trauma.

Always wondered why they built that particular machine with a high-powered can canon. Maybe because it was at a baseball stadium and the kids could catch the cans in their mitts? Any other soda machine would just be limited to giving you free cans of soda. In the absolute worst case scenario of a machine uprising, they could maybe refuse to refrigerate those cans and give you warm soda. Which would really suck if you were being chased by a goblin truck and needed refreshment.
(you can see the outline of the can tube here)
i4.ytimg.com

And I could understand a truck running your over by itself because cruise control or something, or maybe even a video game electrocuting someone because fark circuit breakers, but the chain saw and the electric knife? Those people had to give those devices permission to kill them. Okay, maybe the waitress was scratching her arm with the knife (Hell, I've done that) when it suddenly turned on. But one wonders why she let it keep cutting her? Shock maybe? Okay. But the guy with the chainsaw on his neck...how the fark did he let that happen? "Hmmm chainsaw stopped running...let me lay on my back and put the blade on my chin so I can get a good look at it"? If at anytime you find yourself with a chainsaw blade on your neck (running or not), somewhere in your recent past, you have made a bad decision.

I recall that being the stipulation that lawmakers put in the law that the machines could only exist in '18 and older' establishments.  The feds were the force behind the bans, especially at my school, the feds threatened to pull funding if they continued the practice of having a student smoking area.  Originally any student with a parent signature could smoke in the area and had a card to carry.  When the ban went in affect, it started with a class behind me.  Those with the smoking pass could finish their school tenure with the pass.  Now I live in a state that only allows smoking in businesses that high-end tobacco makes up the majority of their sales.  You can still get beer at bars and bowling alleys, but no smoking.

Here in Virginia, the smoking area of the establishment must be separate from the non smoking section. Have its own HVAC, and non smokers must not have to pass through it to get to the restrooms.

The law is enforced by the health inspector, not the cops. Cops can't do anything about a smoker.

You can have a bar full of smokers, and the fine is $50 to the establishment


So... no teeth to the law

You shut your whore mouth!  Fresca is delicious and refreshing.  Would prefer a Fresca to a Budweiser.

Back in HS, I had a buddy that worked summer nights watering the greens at a local golf course.  In the maintenance barn was an old Coke machine that was stocked with beer.  A buck a piece, which we felt was outrageous at the time, but being underage, it was one of the few places to get alcohol easily.

Needless to say, we spent many a night in that barn.
