A Santa Cruz County medical marijuana dispensary has raked in food donations with a unique offer: complimentary pot.

The Granny Purps dispensary in Soquel offered a complimentary marijuana cigarette for every four cans of food a patient brought in this holiday season. Each patient was limited, however, to a maximum of three cigarettes a day.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that the dispensary took in 11,000 pounds of food and handed out 2,000 marijuana cigarettes between November and Christmas Eve, when the promotion ended.

The food was donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank.

Second Harvest spokesman Danny Keith said Granny Purps, which only has eight employees, contributed the amount of food that would normally come from a business with 30 to 40 employees.
