Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

If you can get out of work (or your jammies) NOW you may still have time to hit the road, or, better yet, catch a flight, up to the Sacramento area, where in a town called Orangevale, one medical marijuana dispensary is giving out free pot today. It's Magnolia Wellness' "going out of business" event (and toy drive) since the recent federal crackdown on marijuana is forcing them to close their doors.As a bonus for en route to or from Orangevale, (or anyone who likes free fast food) today also happens to be Burger King's Free Fries Friday. A stoner's delight, really. The legalese on this deal is that there is no purchase necessary, there's one value size order of their "new" fries per person per visit, it's at participating locations only, and while supplies last.

We are going to skip out on both freebies, but if you're up for an adventure today, hey, godspeed to you. Perhaps as local dispensaries feel the threat of the feds, they might borrow a page out of Magnolia Wellness' book and do a giveaway, too!
