The pot's right

We just knew this was coming, didn't we?

The Berkeley, CA city council has tentatively voted to force the 3 and soon-to-be 4 medical marijuana dispensaries to give away 2% of their marijuana to the poor and homeless in their community each year. And the pot they give away can’t be poor quality either. The proposed city ordinance reads (PDF) that the “medical cannabis provided under this section shall be the same quality on average” as marijuana “dispensed to other members.”

And we thought free cell phones was going too far. Guess that's what happens when a buncha old hippies get to run their own town.
