One Brooklyn pot dealer went above and beyond the call of duty during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Though simply supplying his goods to victims of the storm may have done a lot to help their collective state of mind, this anonymous man went further, actively stepping up his sales game over two days and donating half the profits to storm relief. “Look, there are probably some people down there [in the Rockaways] who want some marijuana — but that’s not going to clothe and feed them,” he said. “So in order for me to help, I needed to turn what I do into something concrete that I could give to them.”
The dealer, who ended up raising $700 for storm victims, spends his free time volunteering, transporting relief goods around South Brooklyn and Queens. He has no qualms about plying his trade for a good cause, and was humble about the donation. “Yes, I made a little extra money for myself those two days,” he said. “But [my clients] are getting something they’d already get anyway. I was going to work regardless, and now I felt like I was doing it with purpose … I’m not doing what I do in order to get rich or create some super marijuana empire. I’m trying to help, and this is my job.”
Bravo, sir. Bravo.
