• The Granny Purps marijuana dispensary in Soquel, California came up with a unique idea to drum up donations to food shelves: give away free pot for every contribution. For every four cans of food a patient brought in, they were rewarded with one joint, although there was a three-joint maximum per day. Shockingly, it worked: “The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that the dispensary took in 11,000 pounds of food and handed out 2,000 marijuana cigarettes between November and Christmas Eve, when the promotion ended.” Here’s my question: Is it a good idea to trust a pothead with food of any kind? What with the munchies factor and everything? I bet some of the food never made it to the food shelves, man. [Yahoo!/AP]
