Berkeley to require marijuana dispensaries to provide free weed to low-income residents

I wish this were satire, but it’s not. From CBS-San Francisco:

The city of Berkeley will require medical marijuana dispensaries to give away two percent of the amount of cannabis they sell each year free to low-income patients.

The City Council voted unanimously at Tuesday’s meeting to amend the city’s medical pot rules, which would also allow for a fourth dispensary in Berkeley.

“Basically, the city council wants to make sure that low-income, homeless, indigent folks have access to their medical marijuana, their medicine,” said Berkeley City Council member Darryl Moore.

Under the proposal, at least two percent of all medical weed dispensed at a club would have to be provided at no cost to very low-income members — and it must be the same quality that’s dispensed to regular paying customers.

“We think this is the responsible thing to do for those less fortunate in our community,” said Moore.

    Making note to self. DO NOT vacation in California. The Kooks are abound there.

    They could have been poetic and said,

    We
    need
    free
    weed!

    But they didn’t have enough brain cells left to be that clever. ;)
