The Washington State Board of Liquors and Cannabis approved a temporary grant for cannabis retailers to offer “Joints for Jabs” promotions to support local vaccination efforts.
Promotions allow it to be provided for free a marijuana cigarette to an adult client who received a COVID-19 vaccine at a vaccination clinic in the cannabis store.
In this way, marijuana joins the list of incentives offered to any adult who receives the COVID-19 vaccine. The idea is to persuade more people to get vaccinated.
Brian Smith, a member of the state committee that regulates the marijuana sector, indicated that “this was a great step for us, because to my knowledge, we have never allowed the gift of marijuana or cannabis to any adult consumer. But this was a step because we thought we had some decent controls. “
The program runs until July 12.
