I see the obvious now.

I will remember this for the next time I hear someone say M leads to hard drugs.

Thanks to you to GG and the rest.
It seems we have similar feelings, but I sometimes have a hard time putting my thinking into text.

"Berkeley City Council members voted unanimously late on Tuesday to instruct local outlets to provide marijuana equal to 2 percent of their sales to patients on low incomes."

This is absurd. Since when does any government dictate an individual's charity?

Not to mention, how does a store owner know an individual is low income. Is it tatooed on their foreheads? Do they provide tax returns?

Good question. From the article.

"The rule defines low income as medical marijuana patients who make at most half the area's median annual income, or $32,000 or less for an individual or $46,000 for a family of four".

$32,000 in SC a year for one person would disqualify them from any free service including Medicaid.
Must be a very high income society they got there.

Yes, I read that definition. How does a potential low income person walk into a store and prove to the store clerk that he qualifies according to that definition?

I am all for MM, hell, even recreational cannabis, and I LOVE California, but man, do they come up with some crazy laws out there.

I am with you, Andy. I mean, are they going to have to go in with w2's or something?

" "the free medical marijuana will be given to only those people "who have been prescribed it by competent medical authorities and hospitals and not to everyone who come asking for it."

Free weed in Berkeley, Calif., for low-income, homeless patients : LIFE : Tech Times

I neither approve nor disapprove of this.
