The Shelter Project

Providing free cannabis to cancer patients since 2014.

Jetty Shelter Project Update

Jetty started the Shelter Project in 2014 with a simple mission: get free cannabis to cancer patients. Since then, we’ve helped over 1,000 people in California get the medicine they need. We’ve also made it our mission to keep it simple: patients (or their caregivers) just provide doctor verification and they’re in.

All that changed after rec, unfortunately. Taxes and other hurdles made it nearly impossible for compassion projects like Shelter to operate. Gov. Brown’s surprise veto of a bill that would have solved it was a big setback.

But we’re hopeful things will change. We met with the State Senator Scott Weiner just last week, who is optimistic about bringing new legislation to the desk of incoming governor, Gavin Newsom, early next year.

We have restarted the program on a limited basis in the Bay Area, as details continue to be worked out regarding future expansion across the state. Patients need a state issued Medical Marijuana ID (MMID) card, which will allow them to avoid taxes. Jetty is still responsible for paying the excise taxes—even on donated product. We’ll be expanding beyond the Bay over the coming weeks.

If you have patients/customers that are interested, please send them to the Shelter Project page for more info, and CDPH website to learn how to obtain an MMID card based on their location in California.

-The Shelter Team



Due to California state cannabis laws and regulations, we are unable to enroll patients in the Shelter Project at this time.

We appreciate your patience as we restructure our compassion program expected to reopen in summer 2018.
