Joints For Jabs: Free Marijuana For Vaccinated Adults In US
Seattle: Licensed marijuana stores in USA’s Washington State can offer free joints to promote on-site COVID-19 vaccine clinics, officials have said.
The state Liquor and Cannabis Board is calling the effort the “Joints for Jabs” program. The board says licensed marijuana retail shops can give away a single pre-rolled joint to anyone over 21 who gets a shot at an on-site vaccine clinic held by July 12, news agency Associated Press reported.
The board has already allowed breweries, wineries and restaurants to offer free drinks in exchange for proof of vaccination.
Other incentives being offered in Washington include free sports tickets and prize money of up to $1 million.
The idea is to persuade more people to become vaccinated, helping to control the deadly virus and helping the state to fully reopen more quickly.
