Bernie Sanders Supporter Redefines the Term 'Grassroots Support'

You Can Burn One for Bernie and His Campaign

Bernie Sanders supporters can take the phrase "Feel the Bern" to a
whole new level by buying weed pipes with the campaign's 
logo from  the Portland-based Stonedware Company.  

Ariel Zimman, a 29-year-old from Portland, told the Center for Public Integrity she will donate 10 percent of all proceeds she gets from sales of ceramic marijuana pipes emblazoned with the Vermont senator's campaign logo to the Sanders campaign. Supporters who want to take the campaign slogan "Feel the Bern" to a whole new level — most likely "Burners for Bernie" — will have to shell out $60 for a pipe and $30 for a chillum, according to Zimman's website

Sanders has previously introduced a bill in congress to end the federal prohibition on recreational marijuana and allow states to decide on legalization. But like most legislation Mr. Sander puts forth, everyone just ignores anyway. 

The 29-year-old told the Center for Public Integrity that she's already donated about $150 to the Sanders campaign and plans to send about $200 more in about a month. That's out of roughly $3,000 in pipe sales. "There is profit on my side of the business, but I'm also doing it for their profit as well."
