A California desert community could be revitalized by marijuana. For many Southern Californians, Nipton is just an exit off the 15 Freeway on the way to Las Vegas. For Phoenix-based American Green, it's a future cannabis resort. The firm is in escrow to buy the whole town, including its 100-year-old hotel, cafe, general store and RV park.
While the company is reportedly cash-strapped, they insist they have the investors lined up to close the deal.
