This Vancouver cafe will give you weed for warm coats and jackets

Many Vancouverites won't have cozy clothing during the cold weather, so one of the city's popular cafes is asking people to drop off warm coats.

The Vancouver weather forecast is calling for subzero temperatures as well as a chance of snow on Sunday. Sadly, many of the city's less fortunate won't have warm clothing to keep out the cold weather, and a great deal of people won't have a warm place to sleep.

In order to make sure people stay safe this winter, the City of Vancouver is opening warming shelters for those who are sleeping outside; however, many people still won't have enough cozy clothing to stay warm during the cold snap.

Now, one of the city's popular cafes is asking residents to drop off warm coats and jackets for a coat drive - but they are offering a unique bonus for doing so.

Reddit user f*ckingyoungperfect shared an image with the caption, "the most vancouver thing ever just came up on my instagram."

The cafe is offering a joint or a dab for clean, lightly used coats and jackets, as seen below:

Warm coats and jackets, please
