Washington State Approves COVID-19 Vaccine Promotion Using 'Joints For Jabs'


Washington state has authorized retailers to offer “joints for jabs,” allowing them to distribute free marijuana to encourage people to get their COVID-19 vaccine.

According to a press release from the state's liquor and cannabis board, state-licensed cannabis retailers are now allowed to give customers over the age of 21 one pre-rolled joint when they get vaccinated at an in-store vaccination clinic. The temporary allowance will last until July 12.

Washington is the most recent of several states to get creative in encouraging residents to get vaccinated: California is holding a vaccine lottery, including a $1.5 million prize for the top ten vaccinated residents, and New Jersey is supporting breweries that offer free beer to those who are vaccinated, among other initiatives.

So far, more than half of the people in the United States have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine.

More than 597,000 people have died in the United States as a result of the coronavirus since last year, and there are still over 14,000 cases reported daily in the country, with over 300 people dying every day.
