Washington state has recently approved an initiative affectionately nicknamed “Joints for Jabs,” allowing approved retailers to offer free marijuana to those getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
This is part of an entire slew of initiatives being rolled out around the country to encourage more people to get their shots. From free fries to a lottery and dating app perks, free marijuana is the latest push to increase the percentage of vaccinated adults in the US.
In a statement released by the state’s liquor and cannabis board, licensed retailers will be allowed to offer customers 21-years-old and above a pre-rolled joint when they receive their COVID-19 vaccinations at an in-store clinic. This initiative will last till July 12, as per HuffPost.
Current figures place over half of adults in the US having received at least one shot. Hopefully, ingenious initiatives such as ‘“Joints For Jabs” will encourage even more people to get themselves vaccinated.
