Being on food stamps qualifies me for cannabis discounts

A vast majority of people don’t wake up in the day and tell themselves, “I’m going to always ask for help at every stage of my life.” There’s a huge amount of strength and courage in having the humility to ask for assistance when you legitimately need it, but it’s also human nature to strive for self-sufficiency.

It makes us actually feel great about ourselves when the people I was with and I are independent and capable. My disabled family would give anything to be as physically capable as they once were, and it breaks my heart to see it. My mom told me at a certain time that his body is his prison and it made me well up with tears almost instantly. I honestly feel incredibly blessed that the few disabilities that I have don’t hold me back so much that they make a “normal life” unattainable at this stage. I have to be mindful of how I use my left arm, but my only true struggle is my actual finances. Applying for food stamps made me feel worthless at first, but now that I’m also getting discounts at the medical cannabis dispensaries it entirely feels empowering. There are three major cannabis dispensary companies in our state that offer discounts on all purchases if you have a food stamps card. One dispensary offers 20% off, another offers 15% off, and the final comes in at 10% off. That’s a significant savings being a food stamp recipient on top of the currency you get from the government for food in the first site. Every little bit of savings helps, especially when I’m shopping at the medical cannabis dispensaries in our state. Some have great deals from time to time, but others have high prices on moderate cannabis products.
