Imagine this happening in Australia !!!
Activists in the United States have been handing out weed to people who have received the Covid vaccine.
Last month, DC Marijuana Justice announced it would be giving spliffs to those who went and got their first jab.
And since then, the groups has been busy fulfilling its promise, handing out pre-rolled joints to people who present their vaccination cards.
Sharing some photos of its progress to its Twitter account, the group said: “A big thank you goes out to @CapitolHemp, @KingWeedShop, @PhoneHomie, @mrpandadc, Bud Appetit, and so many others for donating cannabis & helping with #JointsForJabs!”
Speaking last month, Nikolas Schiller, the group’s co-founder, said: “We are looking for ways to safely celebrate the end of the pandemic and we know nothing brings people together like cannabis.
“DCMJ believes that cannabis should be consumed safely and responsibly, and the pandemic has made this incredibly difficult for many adults to share their homegrown cannabis.
“When enough adults are inoculated with the coronavirus vaccine, it will be time to celebrate – not just the end of the pandemic, but the beginning of the end of cannabis prohibition in the United States.”
But it’s not just in the US capital where campaigners have been using weed to encourage vaccine take-up.
In Michigan, Greenhouse of Walled Lake also announced that until the end of February it too would be offering pre-rolled joints to those who had received their Covid jab.
Owner of the Michigan-based dispensary, Jerry Millen, said in a statement: “Our goal is to raise awareness of the importance of getting the COVID-19 vaccination as we as a community battle this horrible pandemic. ‘Pot for Shots’ is our way of showing our commitment in assisting helping the community get back to normalcy.
“We support the safe and responsible use of cannabis and hope this is the beginning of the end of this insidious pandemic.”
People wanting to get in on the scheme before it ends don’t have to buy additional weed or sign up to anything in order to get their joint.
You have to be 21 years or older and have an unexpired medical card.
Once you get the jab, you’ll get the weed.
