“Pot-For-Poverty”: Bastion Of Liberalism Unveils Free Marijuana For The Poor
by Tyler Durden on 07/13/2014
Aldous Huxley would be doing the “told-you-so-dance” as control of the population (particularly the non-elites) has reached levels only he could have dreamed of. In the latest government plan, hot on the heels of “cash-for-clunkers” and minimum wage hikes, Berkeley – that bastion of California liberalism – has unveiled what can only be described as a “Pot-for-the-poor” scheme.
As LA Times reports, under a new ordinance, at least 2% of the marijuana each dispensary doles out needs to be given free to members who have “very low” incomes (under $32,000). So not only is work punished in America, but not working now has ‘benefits’… it’s only fair.
As The LA Times reports,
Medical marijuana dispensaries in Berkeley must give some of their pot free of charge to low-income patients under an ordinance approved by the City Council.
At least 2% of the marijuana each dispensary doles out needs to be given free to dispensary members who have “very low” incomes and are Berkeley residents, the ordinance, approved Tuesday, says.
The ordinance also stipulates that free pot must be the same quality, on average, as the pot that other members buy.
According to NBC Bay Area, the City Council has defined very low income as $32,000 a year for one person and $46,000 a year for a family of four.
Berkeley had three permitted dispensaries as of early 2012, according to the ordinance.
