Find Out Which City is Giving Away Medical Marijuana for FREE

free marijuana for kush bottles blogThe answer is…drumroll please… Berkeley, CA.

While some cities are going above and beyond to keep marijuana out of the hands of their citizens, Berkeley dispensaries are giving it away for FREE to those who can’t afford it. A city ordinance was just passed stating that dispensaries must hand out two percent of their products to patients who make less than $32,000 per year (or less than $46,000 for families of four). It will go into effect in August.

It’s an equity issue,” said Council member Darryl Moore. “We want to ensure that those who are in need have access to the medication necessary to treat their condition.”

If you’re a dispensary owner in Berkeley looking for California approved marijuana bottles, marijuana containers, or any other type of MMJ packaging, please let us know. We’d love to help.

Don’t Let the Price Tag Fool You: Why It’s Important to Put Quality First When Purchasing Marijuana Packaging Products

price tag for kush bottles medical marijuana blog postEver heard of the saying if something seems too good to be true, it is? Recently, a press release was issued that stated Chinese manufacturing of marijuana bottles was superior to American manufacturing when it comes to cost.

That may be true, but the price of the bottle should not be the number one factor influencing your buying decisions. When it comes to the marijuana industry, what’s most important is for packaging to meet state regulations.

In a press release issued by PR Newswire today, Kush Bottles CEO, Ben Wu stated, “I am keenly familiar with the production quality of bottles and packaging coming from China, and I can unequivocally state that they are far inferior to the product coming from American factories, which use FDA-approved materials and have been independently tested and certified to meet and exceed the standards for child-resistance set by the specific requirements of Title 16 CFR 1700 of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.”

Vice President of Kush Bottles, John Kovacevich added, “In order for a product to be absolutely certified as child-resistant and meet the requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and ASTM International (ASTM), it must be tested and approved in this country. Even if the made-in-China product was tested in the United States and then manufactured overseas, each time a size or mold is changed or a resin altered in the slightest, it must be recertified. That is simply not happening with the Chinese-made products, and this is putting dispensary owners in regulated states at great risk. The potential liability and tradeoff in quality is not worth the slight savings.”

Going with a cheaper model is tempting, but compliance with state standards should take priority.

Against all Odds–Fight to Legalize Medical Marijuana Must Carry On

dice image for kush bottlesVirginia Representative Morgan Griffith shouldn’t let the odds of his Legitimate Use of Medicinal Marijuana Act passing discourage him. As Nelson Mandela said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” And you’ve got to start somewhere.

Griffith wants marijuana to be removed from a Schedule 1 classification which prohibits physicians from prescribing it to a Schedule 2 classification. “I think doctors ought to be able to have the ability to use marijuana like they use many harder drugs—opiates, hydrocodone, oxycodone– to be able to use it in those cases where it is the best treatment modality for their patients.”

We agree. And yet, odds makers say his proposal only has an 11 percent chance of making it out of committee, and 3 percent chance of being passed by Congress.

We repeat the mantra. “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” Just ask Susan B. Anthony. She drafted a federal amendment to grant women voting rights way back in 1875. In 1878, it was introduced to the Senate and was defeated by a vote of 16 to 34. The same version of that amendment failed again in 1914 (11 votes short), 1918 (2 short), 1919 (1 vote shy of passage). It fared a little better in the House, failing in 1915 by 78 votes, but passing in 1918 by one and 1919 by 14.

Women finally earned the right to vote in 1920…thanks to Anthony and others like her who didn’t let the odds stop them.

The Civil Rights Act didn’t fare much better. In a paper, “The Untold Story of the 1964 Civil Rights Act: How the GOP Helped the Democrats Destroy the Solid South,” the authors, Daniel B. Rodriguez and Barry R. Weingast, described the situation as this: “Congress had long proved a graveyard for failed civil rights bills. For nearly a century, southern Democrats relied on the Senate filibuster and other congressional procedures to prevent the passage of civil rights legislation.”

And yet, the 1964 Civil Rights Act finally set out to correct our country’s history of racial injustice.

So carry on, Representative Griffith. The odds may not be in your favor but history is.

At Kush Bottles, we’re all about the legalization movement and believe our child-resistant bottles are helping move the industry in the right direction. If you’re a dispensary owner interested in purchasing any of our pop-top vials, please feel free to give us a call. We’d love to help! (888) 920-5874
