Only in California…..

BERKELEY (CBS SF) — 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 Councilmember Darryl Moore.

    In AZ you get a food stamp discount on the MMJ license. If you’re on food stamps.

    I’ve heard it all now. The politicians have gone from promising a chicken in every pot to promising some pot in every bowl.

    And boy are they going to be PISSED when they find out that medical pot doesn’t get you high…

    • Wirecutter says:

      Oh yeah it does, too. Oh boy, does it.
      It’s some of the most potent weed you can get.

      • Sara says:

        Damn, they just passed something here *finally* for medical use but it does not get you high.

        • Wirecutter says:

          That’s probably Marinol, a synthetic marijuana that’s in capsule form. And now, that shit will no get you high even after popping 10 of them motherfuckers – don’t ask how I know.
          But the weed they sell at the pot shops in Oakland, Berkeley and San Franfuckingcisco is top of the line.

    And with each dose, they get a bumper sticker tht says “I (heart) socialism”.

    • Ofay Cat says:

      With socialism they continue to force everyone to share their pot for free until everyone is stoned and the socialists are in control … then they take all the pot away. That’s how socialism works.

    In Colorado if you are on any form of government assistance the state pays for your red card. It is only $25 a year and you are exempt from paying sales tax as well. So if you refuse to hire people that have a legitimate red card you are still paying them for not working if if they want to work and earn a pay check, which a majority here would prefer to hold a job.

    Beg pardon, but does Walgreen’s, CVS, et al have to give away 2% of their stash every year?

    Look out for a poverty/glaucoma outbreak in Berkley…

    It is a big sacrifice to make in deciding to become a homeless indigent. Those folks could also have chosen a life of toil …. you know … get out of a clean bed every morning and go to nice job where you get paid, have some work friends …. money for your own pot and for food and rent ….

    But those who make the sacrifice to fill the roles of the lowest human life forms in America …. well they deserve some reward wouldn’t you say? I mean to say …. many of these people shit and piss their pants and have nothing to change into …. don’t you think that getting high would alleviate some of that misery …. maybe sedate them so they are more docile and less of a threat.

    Sir, you oughta try dealin’ with it here. Between the growers tearin’ up the countryside, the cartels financin’ huge plantations, and dealin’ with the stoned fools when they come in where I work, it’s about ‘nough to make one crazy. I mean, there’s a big enough dose of stupid on my side of the counter, but when the customers are so fucked up they can’t even remember why they came in, it makes for a total waste of time for all concerned.
    And that ain’t even mentioning the fools who’re sharin’ the road. A few years ago we had some fool who rode his Harley into the side of the hill on one of the curves just about a minute before my wife came down the hill on her bike. I swear, if he’d hit her I’d’ve kicked him ’til he screamed. As he was layin’ there in the roadside ditch, waitin’ for the medics and the law, he pulled his baggie out of his pocket and tried to give it to a girl who’d stopped to see if he needed help. She told him that she was on probation and couldn’t be caught with anything on her, but he kept insisting. He said he knew they’d check his blood at the hospital but he didn’t want to be holding. Nice guy, huh? Ain’t willin’ to take the heat himself but he’ll ask somebody else to risk goin’ back inside. I sent my wife on into town, then turned off the gas on his bike and waited ’til help got there. I made sure to tell the CHP about him trying to get rid of something and headed out. At least I wasn’t too late to work.
    If you want any more stories, I got ’em.

Play nice.
