A marijuana dealer in Brooklyn, NY, has donated half of the proceeds from his sales over a two-day period to Hurricane Sandy victims. Speaking to the Huffington Post, the dealer said that he didn't care about the potential consequences of turning drug money into supplies for victims in the Rockaways.
"Look, there are probably some people down there [in the Rockaways] who want some marijuana—but that's not going to clothe and feed them," the dealer said. "So in order for me to help, I needed to turn what I do into something concrete that I could give to them."
After seeing the damage in Breezy Point, the college-educated man informed clients of his plan and the calls started pouring in. Of the $1,400 he made, he donated $700 that will go toward diapers, hot meals, formula, clean water and more for those in the Rockaways still in need. He also purchased 50 wool blankets for residents without power.
The dealer also decided to get hands-on by helping transport goods to victims in south Brooklyn and Queens. Who says every drug dealer lacks a conscience?
