A few dozen San Fransico homeless people isolating in city-rented hotels are being given cigarettes, methadone and cannabis to keep them from leaving to pursue the stuff.
- Five of the people have been delivered cannabis. Private donations are funding the deliveries. No city funds have been used.
- “They’re doing San Francisco a great service by staying inside,” said Jenna Lane, a spokeswoman for the Department of Public Health. “We’re saying, ‘We’re doing what we can to support you staying inside and not have to go out and get these things.’”
