A Washington D.C. cannabis activist group is planning on giving away a free bag of marijuana to those who receive the COVID-19 vaccine. “DC Marijuana Justice” has announced the giveaway as vaccine centers open in the D.C. area. The campaign called “Joints For Jabs” is an effort to highlight cannabis policy reform at the national and local levels and bring awareness of the equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine.

If you believe in the science that supports medical cannabis, you should believe the science that supports the efficacy of the vaccine,” says co-founder of D.C. Marijuana Justice, Adam Eidinger.

With Joints for Jabs, the DCMJ activists hope to highlight the need for further cannabis policy reform at the national and local level while bringing awareness to the importance of the equitable distribution of the Covid-19 vaccine. Once local health officials begin offering vaccines to the general public, dozens of home cannabis cultivators will celebrate the occasion by handing out free bags of marijuana outside vaccination centers. Locations and times of the Joints for Jabs giveaways will be announced after DCMJ has more information about local vaccination sites.

Local cannabis growers have already pledged three pounds of marijuana for the giveaways, and organizers are hoping to have amassed five pounds of pot by the time the events begin. The group will also be offering cannabis seeds named “Grosso’s Green” in honor of marijuana patient, activist, and former D.C. Councilmember David Grosso, who left the city council last year.

A bribe or motivational push to help people get vaccinated?
