Providing free cannabis to cancer patients since 2014.

When the Jetty Shelter Project started in 2014, we knew we’d face challenges. And we definitely have! Yet our passion for providing people with the plant medicine they need remains strong as ever. Our mission is simple: provide free cannabis products to California cancer patients in active treatment who have a financial need.

Compassionate cannabis began in the 90s (Prop 2015) with activists like Dennis Peron and Brownie Mary fighting for disenfranchised and marginalized groups. Recipients of this program included chronic and terminally ill patients, people diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, and veterans. But when California legalized recreational use (Prop 64), it inadvertently made operating a compassionate cannabis program impossible. A multi-year effort to fix the flaw finally passed in 2019. Our founders actively lobbied for the reform, and our Cannabis For Good tour was instrumental in gathering the signatures needed to pass Senate Bill 34. With Harborside Oakland’s support, we’re successfully relaunching our Oakland pilot project to donate products while maintaining compliance.  

Cannabis is medicine, and compassion programs like ours ensure dignity and relief for those already struggling with so much. So far, the Jetty Shelter Project has helped more than 1,000 patients. We are continually adding more dispensary partnerships as fast as we can to proudly help more people in need. 

Thank you for your continued support, patience, and love.
