Medical Marijuana Users in San Jose Get Free Pot in Exchange for "I Voted" Sticker

MTV rocked the vote. Now some Silicon Valley medical marijuana dispensaries are trying to “roll” the vote.
A controversial campaign to encourage voting by giving free medical marijuana to San Jose voters is getting nationwide attention.
San Jose voters who brought their “I Voted” sticker – along with their medical marijuana ID card -- to about a dozen participating dispensaries received free or discounted weed on Tuesday, primary Election Day.
Amsterdam's Garden, a San Jose medicinal marijuana dispensary, was busier than most polling places on Tuesday. It’s not a voting precinct, but if you already voted and were a member, you got a reward: a free, pre-rolled marijuana cigarette.
