It is amazing what you can buy today with a welfare card as medical marijuana has been added to the mix in some states
Astonishingly pot smokers on welfare may be amazed that their EBT cards are approved to purchase medical marijuana at dispensaries.
The Washington Times reported:
Welfare recipients can’t use their EBT cards at liquor stores but they can at marijuana dispensaries in states such as Colorado that have legalized pot, Sen. Jeff Sessions revealed Tuesday.
The Alabama Republican announced that he was drafting legislation to close the welfare-for-weed loophole after the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services confirmed to him that marijuana shops were not off limits to EBT cards, which replaced food stamps, or other federal benefits.
