A new pot dispensary in California announced Tuesday that it would offer free medical marijuana for cancer patients and veterans for life.

Green Leaf Wellness, in Desert Hot Springs, is reportedly the only dispensary in the state that has a medical program that will offer that deal to patients.

“We cater to veterans. Because of our education, we’re capable of offering them relief from anxiety without that high feeling,” Ian Armstrong, the president of the American Cannabis Chamber of Commerce, told He said these patients and veterans deserve help.

He said clients need to show a diagnosis or a DD214 from the military to qualify.

The company intends to pay for the free medication by tapping into other lucrative business ventures.
