Fliers were discovered being distributed in Eagle Rock, California, offering $40 worth of free medical-grade marijuana in an apparent attempt to draw people to vote.
Reports based on exit-polls showed nearly 10 times more voters turned out with the pot incentive compared to last year.

It is unclear who is responsible for the flier.
