The only problem is that it does cost something to grow good meds. Unless you are a Philanthropist who has time and all that money on their hands. Oh how I wish...
Imagine a Gymnasium sized growing operation. Talk about some serious manicuring.
I'm a member of a collective in California. Its called WAMM. The Wo/Mans Alliance for Medical Marijauna. Up until a few years ago they where only allowed to grow for Terminally ill patients. Now they provide pot at about 5$ a gram. Capsules (THC (Indica and Sativa) and CBD!) They also provide tinctures and edibles.
They only carry two Strains, There heirloom African Land Race and There Purple Indica from Afghanistan. Both brought over about 40 years ago.
There medicine is great. I always go in when I run out and am low on cash. I also get CBD capsules from them constantly (as other capsules are much much more expensive, I take 3 a day).
Not completely free, but much more reasonable and not nearly as commercial. They operate under different standards almost, as they existed BEFORE! Prop 215 and 420.
Sometimes when I bake I give part of it to a collective I go to once in a while for their compassion jar - they know the community and I know it helps someone that can't afford it. I think it's the best way, sometimes I'll just give some away too. Sort of like Capt. Kronic, I like to share.... Maybe the feeling of wanting to share is what is so scary -- humans are supposed to run on greed and avarice, not giving stuff away.
I give away good outdoor bud to collectives for free every year. Good karma collective in lucern useally gets it. This year i will give it to wellness center in sf. Next week i drop it off, friday. Aromatic Hemp Collective is my company name. Strains are crosses, so please leave me info about yur impressions.
