Joints for Jabs Bribery: Washington State to Give Away Free Cannabis Joints With COVID-19 Jabs

Licensed cannabis dispensaries in Washington have been given the go-ahead by authorities to offer free joints to adults who have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The “Joints for Jabs” program announced on Monday by the state’s liquor and cannabis board allows marijuana proprietors to offer pre-rolled joints to anyone over 21 who gets a vaccine shot at a clinic by July 12.

The offer only applies to pre-rolled weed cigarettes, and not to other products like edibles or loose cannabis flowers, reports Associated Press.

So far, 58 percent of Washington residents have received at least a single dose while 49 percent have been fully vaccinated, according to the New York Times.

Gov. Jay Inslee has said that he would lift all pandemic restrictions by month’s end, if not sooner, once 70 percent of residents over the age of 16 have received their first dose of the vaccine.

The new promotion is a part of increased efforts by the state to allow breweries, wineries, restaurants, and entertainment venues to offer free beverages and other goods in exchange for proof of vaccination. Free sports tickets and lotteries for cash prizes have also been offered to incentivize the vaccine for hesitant residents of the state.

States and cities across the United States have offered various promotions since the pace of vaccinations began to sharply decline in April.

The Biden administration has encouraged such creative approaches in hopes to keep up the rapid pace of vaccinations across the country, with White House officials saying that states could pay for the promotions using federal relief funds.
