American Green purchased the 120-acre ghost town for $5 million and plans to transform it into a marijuana tourist destination, Forbes reported.

Company spokesman David Gwyther is delighted with his firm's purchase. "The cannabis revolution that's going on here in the U.S. has the power to completely revitalie communities in the same way gold did during the 19th century".

Nipton was originally founded during the gold rush in the early 20th Century when the precious metal was found nearby. It also intends to expand the solar farm previously installed by the current owner, which provides much of the tiny town's electricity.

American Green plans to include a new facility to manufacture water infused with CBD, the cannabis component that is typically associated with reducing pain and inflammation.

She declined to reveal price before the sale closes, but noted she and her late husband, Gerald Freeman, listed the property at $5m when they put it up for sale past year.

Now the new owner plans to turn the one-time Gold Rush town into an "energy-independent, cannabis-friendly" destination.

"The Cannabis Revolution that's going on here in the US, has the power to completely revitalize communities in the same way gold did during the 19th century", said David Gwyther, chairman and president of American Green, in a statement. It is 60 miles south of Las Vegas and 10 miles off the major highway that connects that city to Los Angeles. She added that Freeman liked to look for gold in his spare time. With pot now legalised for recreational and medical use in California, Nevada and six other states, one in five American adults can consume the formerly taboo plant as they please. "The Green Rush can keep it moving the way people envisioned it years ago".
