NYC and San Francisco Claim Marijuana Is “Essential” Amid Coronavirus Shut Down


When most people think of essential needs, food and medicine are what immediately come to mind. Well, according to the cities of New York and San Francisco, marijuana is also considered an essential medication during a time of crisis.

Initially, when San Francisco went under lockdown, marijuana dispensaries were not considered essential, but after many of their residents complained, the city updated their list of essential services to include marijuana dispensaries.

The San Francisco Department of Public Health updated the policy through a Tweet in which they said, “Cannabis is an essential medicine…Dispensaries can continue to operate as essential businesses during this time while practicing social distancing and other public health recommendations.”

Rather than capitulating to the complaints of those who claim they need cannabis, perhaps San Francisco could put some thought and effort into stopping their homeless population from defecating on the street?

    It’s odd that the NY Gov. wants to clear the shelves of VAPING products (of which many contain CBD), yet seeks to legalize MARIJUANA in NY. Where is the connection ? And finally, his Dad was OK, just OK !

    It is best to keep some cohorts in a dazed, lazy condition so as to minimize felonious events. Better to keep alcohol out of the barbaric cohort’s hands since that drug easily incites criminality in the 70 to 80 IQ cohort.
