In the spirit of charity, a marijuana drug dealer showed that it’s truly the thought that counts.
A Brooklyn, N.Y. drug dealer told reporters that he felt compelled to invest two days’ worth of weed proceeds into helping victims of Hurricane Sandy in Rockaway, N.Y.
Regardless of the criminal consequences that he might face, the anonymous man told reporters he simply wanted to help Sandy victims, especially those who are still without power.
"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 weed dealer saw some of the storm damage in Breezy Point, an area that lost 80 homes to flooding or fire.
He reached out to his clientele on Monday informing them of his charitable plans. The college-educated dealer said they quickly responded and he made about $1,400. He donated $700 for supplies such as food, diapers, and clean water.
