The city of Oakland on Thursday became the first city in the United States to begin distributing marijuana to ease the symptoms of the chronically ill.

Miley said the city hopes the action will shield the club from the U.S.

The switch to green will add about $100,000 to Oakland's annual $4-million electricity bill.
