Washington state offers ‘joints for jabs’ to boost vaccination rates
State is offering free marijuana joints to adults that receive a Covid vaccine in program that will run until 12 July
To boost vaccination rates, Washington state is offering free marijuana joints to any adults that receive a Covid-19 vaccine.
On Monday, the Washington state liquor and cannabis board announced the promotion, aptly called “Joints for Jabs”, that will run until 12 July. During the initiative’s run, state-licensed dispensaries can give age-appropriate customers, 21 and older, a pre-rolled joint when they receive their first or second dose. Participants can only receive the free joint at an on-site vaccination clinic, on the same day as their vaccination.
