Low-income and homeless medical marijuana patients who dwell in Berkeley, California, will soon have access to free weed. Berkeley’s city council unanimously passed a proposal this week that will require marijuana dispensaries to hand out 2 percent of their total inventory to the less fortunate, at no cost. One of the cruel realities is that when you do get sick and you have a serious illness, it’s often hard to keep a job, or keep your income up, Sean Luse, a spokesperson for a dispensary called the Berkeley Patients Group, told CBS. The dispensary has been voluntarily handing out free weed to low-income patients for the past 15 years, Luse explained, because those people really need the help the most.
