Curaleaf Arizona, which operates dispensaries throughout the Valley, is encouraging patients to donate canned and other non-perishable goods to benefit St. Mary’s Food Bank and help “Shatter the Stigma” around medical cannabis by highlighting the positive impact of medical marijuana patients on the communities in which they live.
“Community advocacy has been – and continues to be – a guiding principal of our operation, not only in Arizona, but across Curaleaf’s national network of dispensaries,” said Steve Cottrell, president of Curaleaf Arizona. “Through this annual initiative, we’re proud to affirm our role as involved, caring members of the community and look forward to organizing similar activations that help our neighbors Live Life Well.”
Curaleaf Arizona is encouraging patients to donate by incentivizing this important annual community effort with a “cans for kush” exchange. Donate 2 cans and get a .25g Shortie Pre-Roll, 5 cans for a .5g Curaroll pre-roll, 10 cans for a 1g pre-roll and 25 cans will net patients a 5-pack of pre-rolls.
Recommended non-perishable items include canned tuna, beans, chilis, stews, soups, fruits and vegetables, chicken, peanut butter, and boxed pastas and cereals. Purchase is necessary and limits may apply. Valid through Dec 1, 2019. Contact for more information and limits.
Last year, Arizona medical marijuana patients donated more than 13,000 lbs of food to the Curaleaf Community Food Drive, and Curaleaf Arizona is hoping to double those efforts this year because Curaleaf has opened twice as many dispensaries since last year’s food drive.
