    LOL...because you think it's cool that potheads make food donations and Hatuey believes that there are no white folks that need a hand out.

    Sucks, don't it?

    Good for you! Great job! I'm so proud you kept politics out of your charity.

    I mean, hell, everyone's donation goes the same.

    Still, he noted, food and monetary donations are very much needed because of the poor economy.

    Solberg said he was at first unaware of the nature of Munday's businesses. He said he finally realized, once he got off the phone with him, that they were medical marijuana shops.

    He said he does not support them and their proliferation.

    "They are all over," Solberg said, calling them a "pestilence" and "travesty" in the community.

    Solberg said he believed the food offer was made because the marijuana collective was "trying to validate themselves."

    Hi Chris,

    What do you mean when you call medical marijuana dispensaries a "pestilence" and "travesty" in the community?

    This really calls this into question then:

    The Lord impressed on me to tell him thanks, but no thanks.. I feel good about the decision. It felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.

    If the lord impressed on you to do this, then why are you coming here and gloating over how you are rejecting an amicable donation, and trying to get people to take your poll to justify your actions?

    Chris,

    Isn't your organization a tax exempt nonprofit? Don't you have a fiduciary duty to the people who are the object of your organization's charitable intent? In that fiduciary capacity did your action benefit those people or did your action simply make you feel good about yourself?

    Remember, Christ embraced Mary Magdelene. Can you do no less with a medical cannabis dispensary?

    They are completely unregulated here in Redding and Shasta County. Recently I had to move our Ministry to another location. Of course I had great difficulty trying to find a new location due to landlords not wanting to rent to a food bank, but I struck up an interesting conversation with one who owned several properties here in Redding. He said in the last 3 months the only calls of interest were calls from 53 marijuana co ops from San Francisco on up wishing to rent his properties. I truly believe organized crime is behind much of this, as a very interesting character came to our ministry pretending to be interested in volunteering after this article came out in the local paper.

    An absolute ridiculous amount of pot in our area, with reports of it falling out of childrens pockets, as well as kids getting on school busses smelling like marijuana gardens makes it a travesty, with no regulations from the Redding City Council making their continued unabated proliferation a pestilence.

    A sad message to send to our children and future generations, and morally unacceptable.

    Re: Redding charity turns down pot dispensary's food donation

    What if a Christian Dispensary donated? You don't actually believe that only nonchristians run those caregiver shops.

    It sounds like you are letting you own personal beliefs interfere with your mission goals. At the expense of the hungry and the needy.

    Isn't that abit selfish? Would you accept a food donation from a beer distributor?
