Just a fair warning, this might be the most random, yet delightful article posted all year. The North Pole City Council in Alaska considered a proposal that would ban marijuana sales within the Alaskan town. There were various people that testified before the City Council, but none of them have received as much attention as Santa Claus. That’s right, a man who’s name is actually Santa Claus showed up to the City Council meeting to testify, and he testified in favor of allowing medical marijuana sales. Per People:
A North Pole resident whose legal name is Santa Claus showed up at the North Pole’s City Council meeting and dropped his two cents.
“As far as the image goes here at North Pole, how do most people perceive Santa Claus?” Claus said. “I would say Santa Claus is a pretty jolly fellow.”
“I am a medical marijuana patient,” Claus continued. “I would like to have access to medical marijuana here in North Pole and not have to travel to Fairbanks to get it.”
I’m happy to say that the City Council agreed with Mr. Claus. The ban proposal was defeated 2-5. Every medical marijuana patient who finds relief in cannabis should be allowed to purchase it in a safe environment. Especially Santa Claus.
