Welfare Weed: Berkeley Enacts Marijuana Redistribution for the Homeless

From each according to his ability, to each according to his high.


If there's anything the homeless need, it's free pot.  The welfare state is providing so much. It was bound to do some cannabis social justice since the plant is where it gets most of its ideas.

 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.

From each according to his ability, to each according to his high.

“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.

Free pot for the homeless. It's a plan so great that it can't possibly go wrong.

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

It's the most responsible thing to do since the free switchblades for the homeless and the free crack pipes for the homeless.

... and it must be the same quality that’s dispensed to regular paying customers.

Obviously. Give them the good Canadian stuff. You don't want them getting paranoid.

The measure also revisits definitions for cannabis collectives and dispensaries, patients and caregivers, on top of setting new rules for hours of operation and the methods for testing cannabis and edibles.

This is what legalization means. No wonder the cartels aren't going anywhere.
