In an effort dubbed “Joints for Jabs,” Washington state is offering free marijuana “joints” for anyone 21 and older who gets vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The Liquor and Cannabis Board said it will let state-licensed cannabis retailers “provide one joint to adult consumers who receive COVID-19 vaccination at an in-store vaccination clinic,” the USA Today reports.

Cannabis retail licensees contacted the board offering to help promote the vaccination effort.

“Joints for Jabs” went into effect immediately and expires July 12.

Arizona had the same idea. Its Mint Cannabis Dispensary partnered with a medical group to offer free on-site vaccinations at its locations in Phoenix. Once vaccinated at three of its clinics, people 21 and old can receive a free pre-rolled joint and an edible cannabis gummy in what is called “Snax for Vaxx.”
