Shekina Pena, who owns Your Healthy Choice Clinic, faces a misdemeanor count of influencing voters with money or other valuable consideration. The charge, filed by state Attorney General Bill Schuette and Secretary of State Ruth Johnson, carries up to 90 days in jail.

It stems from a July post on the dispensary’s website, offering patients who registered to vote a free half-gram of marijuana or a free edible marijuana product in return.

Pena wrote on the dispensary’s Facebook page July 29 that Your Healthy Choice was participating in a voter registration drive along with other medical marijuana shops.
