Berkeley, California wants to sell marijuana too

Legal recreational marijuana went on sale Tuesday up in the state of Washington.

Not to be outdone, there’s a proposal in front of the city council in Berkeley, California  a state where marijuana is so far legal only for medicinal use  that would oblige pot dispensaries in the city to provide free pot to the poor and homeless in an amount equivalent to 2 percent of their annual sales.

And the ordinance says it’s gotta be good stuff, too.
