First, Anheuser-Busch promised free beer if we reached 70% of U.S. adults vaccinated by July 4. Then, United Airlines announced a sweepstakes offering free flights to vaccinated passengers. Now, we’re giving away marijuana which, if you’re playing along at home, is still a Schedule I drug as far as the DEA is concerned.
According to The Daily Wire, “Washington state just added a new incentive for citizens to get vaccinated as it announced that it will temporarily allow certain shops to give away free marijuana joints alongside COVID-19 vaccinations.”
As reported by The Olympian, “The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board [LCB] is offering pot shops the opportunity to host COVID-19 vaccination clinics at their stores and give a free joint to customers who get vaccinated.”
“As part of its strategy to vaccinate more of its population, Washington State will allow adults to claim a free marijuana joint when they receive a Covid-19 vaccination shot,” adds the New York Times.
Will free drugs be enough to put the nation over 70%?
We have a feeling Biden’s July 4th promise is going up in smoke.
