@MJINews: Spokane Dispensary to Donate $36K Worth of #Marijuana

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, one dispensary in Spokane is going to show its thanks by donating medical marijuana to qualifying patients. The dispensary, 4:20 Friendly, will give away one free ounce of marijuana to up to 180 medical marijuana patients on Nov. 23, 2016.

The dispensary had initially come under fire for TV news reports on the giveaway, with the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board concerned that the reports could be considered “advertising.”

“I’m not advertising,” explained Carol Ehrhart, the dispensary’s owner, as reported by The Spokesman-Review. “This is a news story.”

With that distinction, Ehrhart is following through with the giveaway, offering a total of $36,000 worth of marijuana donated by BBB Farms.

According to KXLY, BBB Farms owner Robert Vernon has been eager to donate marijuana since the passage of Senate Bill 5052, which allows dispensaries to donate marijuana to qualifying patients.

“First time I read it in the rules, that a retail store can donate to qualified patients, I’ve been wanting to do it,” Vernon said. “Not everybody growing is all about the greed. We know there’s people who need it and we’re here to give it.”
