Why am I being warned about exposure to cannabis smoke?

Cannabis smoke is formed when the dried leaves, flowers, stems, seeds, and resins of cannabis plants are burned.

  • Cannabis (marijuana) smoke is on the Proposition 65 list because it can cause cancer. Exposure to cannabis smoke may increase the risk of cancer.
  • Cannabis smoke is also on the Proposition 65 list because if a pregnant woman smokes cannabis, this can affect the development of the child. For example, this may affect the child’s birthweight, memory, and attention.
  • Proposition 65 requires businesses to determine if they must provide a warning about exposure to listed chemicals.

What is Proposition 65?

Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals. Read more

Is there a “compassion” discount?

A few years back, it was not uncommon for California collectives to offer ‘compassionate care’ programs, whereby cannabis would be heavily discounted, or even donated to qualifying patients. These charitable programs were considered essential, if not life-saving by low-income individuals for whom marijuana was one of the few remaining options to relieve their suffering.

Unfortunately, those programs all but disappeared following the passage of MAUCRSA - the Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulatory Safety Act, allowing Californians over 21 to legally buy pot for recreational use. An unintended consequence of the act was to instantly make these kinds of programs economically unsustainable, even for non-profit collectives intending to donate product to patients in need.

Fortunately, that’s changing. California’s new compassionate care act, SB 34, took effect on March 1st, 2020. Now, compassionate care programs like WAMM Phytotherapies in Santa Cruz, can once again legally receive donated product from growers, and in turn provide free or low-cost medical marijuana to those who need it most.

While Stone Age Farmacy does not yet have an avenue for participating in a program like this, we hope to be able to offer some kind of compassionate care discount in the near future.

In the meantime, the best options for saving money at Stone Age are below:
