I rail against greedy people in the cannabis industry all the time, and I feel rightfully so. There are a lot of greedy jerks in the industry, and I will continue to complain about them whenever I get a chance. But I also like to highlight situations where the opposite is occurring. There are a lot of great people in this industry, ones that are full of compassion and truly care about cannabis patients. We are seeing people like that on display right now in Northern California, where dispensaries are giving free medical marijuana to victims of fires in Northern California, an area that was hit very hard this last summer. Per the Los Angeles Times:
Medical marijuana dispensaries in Northern California are giving patients affected by a hugely destructive wildfire up to $200 in free cannabis per patient for the next week.
Through Oct. 7, two marijuana-related product companies, Care By Design and AbsoluteXtracts, are offering free products at five dispensaries in San Francisco, Santa Rosa, Sebastopol and Lake County, the companies said in a joint statement.
The companies produce cannabis oil, sprays and vaporizing cartridges, among other products.
In total, the company donated $20,000 worth of medical marijuana and medical marijuana products. That is obviously something that the companies didn’t need to do, and the dispensaries didn’t need to do. But they are doing it anyways, and that’s something that needs to be commended and celebrated. Please support the companies and dispensaries that are doing this. This is a very cool thing!
