    SEATTLE - Solstice and Uncle Ike’s pot shop have partnered with Low Income Housing Institute to create a special Tiny House cannabis pre-roll pack.

    A portion of the sales will go directly to the Tiny House program, which aims at providing needed shelter to Seattle’s homeless population.

    The pre roll-pack will be sold exclusively at Uncle Ike’s 23rd and Union and Capitol Hill locations.

    LIHI Executive Director Sharon Lee said, “We think the Tiny House cannabis packs would make a great stocking-stuffer or holiday gift. 

    While it’s a little bit of an unusual fundraiser, funds for shelter will help address a deadly serious problem:  91 homeless men and women died on the streets last year.  Safe and secure Tiny Houses would have prevented some of those deaths.”
