A Weed Company Is Donating Free Bud To Federal Workers Amid The Shutdown

Thanks to the folks over at BudTrader.com, federal employees in need can receive free medical marijuana.

The longest government shutdown in history is close to entering its second month with no signs of an end date. Over 800,000 furloughed federal workers aren’t getting paid, putting thousands of people in a terrible financial position. While it seems as though the country’s leader is dragging the shutdown on until he receives his $5 billion funding request to build a wall that separates the US from Mexico- a growing list of charities, fundraisers, and volunteers across the US are stepping up to the plate to lend a helping hand. The latest to the bunch is a weed company!

BudTrader.com describes itself as “the largest cannabis online marketplace” and is known as the “Craigslist of weed” by consumers. This week, the company stated that they’d donate “the maximum legal allowable amount of cannabis” to government employees who are running low on cash and are in need of medical marijuana to treat chronic pain and other medical issues.

In a press release, CEO Brad McLaughlin said, “I don’t think federal employees are getting enough love and support… In these tough times, we want to extend the offer of a donation of medical cannabis to any federal worker affected by the shutdown.”

Government workers interested in receiving complimentary weed can reach out to the company’s website. And don’t worry, they’re working with an attorney to ensure that all transactions are confidential.
