Puff, puff, jab.
Wasington state residents of legal age can get a free joint at a licensed marijuana store if they receive an on-site coronavirus vaccine, officials said Monday.
The “Joints for Jabs” program was approved by the state Liquor and Cannabis Board as a way to entice residents to get vaccinated.
The initiative applies to anyone over 21. In exchange for getting a shot at an on-site clinic, licensed adult-use weed shops will dish out a free pre-rolled joint.

Washington state has already implemented other initiatives aimed at incentivizing its population to get the jab.
Breweries, wineries and restaurants can offer free drinks in exchange for proof of vaccination. Free sports tickets and prize money of up to $1 million are also being offered.
