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.

News sources have confirmed that the deader even purchased 50 wool blankets for Rockaway residents who are still without electricity. Last week, a Nor’easter caused even more damage in the Rockaway Peninsula.

"Yes, I made a little extra money for myself those two days," he told reporters. "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."

The “Mary Jane” pusher said he has also been contributing to the cause by delivering supplies to relief centers such as the Lava Girl Surf and Rockaway Beach Club.

According to the Lava Girl Surf’s website, over 1,000 volunteers have cleaned out homes and brought goods to those in need.

    I don’t think he was wrong. He’s going to continue to sell regardless, so why not help the victims of Sandy with some of the proceeds.
