A Weed Company Is Giving Government Workers Free Bud During the Shutdown

The government shutdown may be entering its second month, but one cannabis website has decided to lend a hand to some of the 800,000 furloughed federal workers who aren’t getting paid—by offering them free medical weed for as long as the shutdown lasts. Online marketplace BudTrader.com pledged to donate bud to government employees struggling to afford their medical marijuana. In a Facebook post, the company wrote, “[t]o any Federal Employee unable to pay for their medical cannabis due to the Government shutdown, BudTrader will donate to you the allowable, legal limit according to California adult use rules and regulations…” The company’s goal is to look after those who use cannabis to treat chronic pain and other medical issues, but are too strapped for cash right now to maintain their supply.

In a press release, the company’s CEO, Brad McLaughlin, stated, “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 hitting BudTrader up for some complimentary weed can reach out via the company’s website, without having to worry about anyone finding out. According to BudTrader, all communications will be strictly confidential.
