MIDDLETON, Calif. (AP) - Medical marijuana dispensaries in Northern California are giving patients affected by a hugely destructive wildfire up to $200 in free cannabis per patient for the next week.

The Los Angeles Times reports ( ) Wednesday that through Oct. 7, two companies are offering free products at five dispensaries in San Francisco, Santa Rosa, Sebastopol and Lake County.

Patients eligible for the products must have a medical marijuana prescription and home addresses in Cobb, Kelseyville, Middletown or Hidden Valley Lake. Those communities were hit the hardest from the fire that ripped through 118 square miles, destroyed more than 1,950 homes and killed four people, the newspaper reported.

The two companies donated $20,000 worth of marijuana-related items in all. The offer began last Thursday.

The wildfire was one of the worst in state history. It is nearly fully contained.
