A debit card type of card is issued with funds to use for approved grocery items. Yes, the govt. is paying. It's not a "charitable" contribution from the store dictated by the govt.

To continue this off topic segue from medical marijuana (which I don't mind at all, the segue that is) :

"Food Inventory Donations The food inventory enhanced tax credit allowed individuals, businesses, and corporations to donate wholesome food to nonprofits and deduct their cost basis plus one-half the difference between their cost and the market value of the donated goods. The value of the credit could not exceed twice the cost basis of the product donated.

As part of the fiscal cliff deal that passed earlier this year, Congress extended the food donation tax deduction for 2012 and 2013. The food inventory credit is expected to be taken up in tax reform."

I heard Washington DC was voting this fall for legal marijuana or was it medical?

Florida will vote for medical marijuana in November.

Our state SC legalized cannabis oil prescribed by a doctor, but they have no idea how to implement it. So, its still not available to those children suffering from debilitating seizures.

Good luck to both states in their quest.

Our state recently legalized cannabis oil, but ONLY for children suffering from seizures. One poor guy was growing his own and extracting the oil as it was the only thing that helped his cancer. He and his family refused to plead guilty after being caught, went to court, and he was found guilty. He gets to go to prison, and will probably die there. The family assets will also be confiscated.

That's awful, about the guy prosecuted for growing his own medicine.

We have medical, and one dispensary, but, only 4 licences have been issued.

They are wrapping up on making possession nothing more than a $25 dollar fine.

Here is a pretty good read:

Police Unions And Pharmaceutical Companies Fund Anti-Marijuana Fight - Business Insider

They are scared of a plant that anyone can potentially grow, and help alleviate many of the ailments they bank on with addictive, deadly, rx drugs.

Why am I not surprised? There is far too much greed in today's world.
