Berkeley mandates free medical marijuana for the poor

And this is actually catching people by surprise?

That’s what the Berkeley City Council in California has unanimously approved, ordering medical marijuana dispensaries to donate 2 percent of their stash to patients making less than $32,000 a year.

The new welfare program in the liberal-leaning city is set to launch in August 2015.

The ordinance, which passed in August and is the first of its kind in the country, comes at a time when several states are debating how to handle a growing movement to legalize marijuana for both medical and recreational use.

And they are not being original. The Netherlands have been giving government-issued heroin to junkies for quite a while now.  So basically the Dutch taxpayers are paying to give drug addicts their daily dose.

The ultimate Government Handout.
