Win-Win: Pull Some Weeds And Get Free Marijuana

Dispensaries give back to their local economies by boosting jobs and tourism, but this shop in Maine is taking a pledge to clean up the streets literally. Summit Medical Marijuana is offering a trade-off: One bag of litter collected from around town, in exchange for one free marijuana

Dennis Meehan, owner of Summit Medical Marijuana, told WCSH6 that he was inspired by a similar program at a dispensary in Colorado. According the news outlet, Meehan said: “Something that caregivers do all across Maine that very few people know about is that they make huge sacrifices every week to help others live a better quality of life.”

Meehan goes on to talk about the profound impact medical marijuana can have on those who need it. “There’s a whole world of science out there. If you started the research today, 10 years from now you’d still be doing the research…When you see this plant have an incredibly life changing impact on somebody that has given up on life, or somebody that has been given up on by modern medicine – and you can bring them back to life and give them a quality of life. It doesn’t just affect that patient, it affects every single person in the family.”
