A proposal unanimously passed by the city council this week calls on the cannabis outlets to dedicate two percent of the amount of weed they sell to those who could not otherwise afford it, CBS reports. Also, to keep the recipients from getting that Reggie Bush, whatever product the dispensaries hand out must be equal quality to what they sell to other customers.
Berkeley City Councilmember Darryl Moore:
"Basically, the city council wants to make sure that low-income, homeless, indigent folks have access to their medical marijuana, their medicine. We think this is the responsible thing to do for those less fortunate in our community."
In fact, one of the city's pot peddlers had already been leading the charge before the proposal, handing out weed to the poor by it's own volition for years.
Sean Luse of Berkeley Patients Group, the innovator dispensary aforementioned:
"We've found out over the years that one of the cruel realities is that when you do get sick and you have a serious illness is that it's often hard to keep a job, can be hard to keep your income up, so those people really need the help the most."
Also in the new rules, the number of dispensaries in Berkeley will increase, to a whopping four.
Time to pack it up America, and take to the streets, just make sure you have glaucoma first.
