LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

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!
