Medical marijuana patients in Berkeley, Calif. who have fallen on hard times owe the city a huge "Thank you," as its City Council passed a proposal that will force dispensaries to give away a small amount of weed to low-income patients. The proposal passed unanimously.
According to CBS San Francisco, this will require dispensaries to provide low-income customers with two percent of their product at no expense, and the weed has to be the same quality as what paying customers receive.
Councilmember Darryl Moore explained that the city just wants to look out for everyone. "Basically, the city council wants to make sure that low-income, homeless, indigent folks have access to their medical marijuana, their medicine," he told CBS San Francisco, adding that they believe it's "the responsible thing to do for those less fortunate in our community."
CBS San Francisco says the measure will go up for final approval next week.
