The Washington state in the United States of America has come up with a unique way to motivate people to get COVID vaccine. Washington, on Tuesday, approved free weed for those who get vaccinated against COVID.
The initiative dubbed as 'Joints for Jabs' will allow marijuana stores in the state to give away a single pre-rolled joint to anyone over the age of 21 who gets COVID vaccine shot at an on-site vaccination clinic by July 12.
Several US states and cities have come up with such ideas to lure citizens to get vaccine. While New Jersey has offered free beer, New York has started a raffle with a chance to win a full-ride college scholarship. Several states have sponsored lotteries with $1 million or more in cash rewards.
