One Michigan marijuana dispensary is offering a pretty cool incentive for getting the COVID-19 vaccine and that’s a free joint to anyone who gets it.
Greenhouse of Walled Lake in Michigan is offering free pre-rolled joints to anyone who gets the Covid-19 vaccine in an effort to stop the pandemic.
“We’re all stressed out, but the vaccine is hopefully what’s going to finally end this pandemic, and we just want to reward people who are going ahead of the curve to get the vaccine,” Greenhouse owner Jerry Millen told CNN. “If I can help stop the pandemic in any slightest way, and this is the way I can do it, so be it.”
Dubbed the “Pot for Shots” promotion, it is in a joint effort with UBaked Cannabis Company, which is providing the pre-rolls. The promotion has already began and runs through February.
Greenhouse of Walled Lake wrote on Instagram last week, “Beginning this Friday and running until the end of February, The Greenhouse is running a “Pot for Shots” giveaway! Come by starting Friday and show your proof of vaccination and get a free @ubakedmi pre-roll! We’re all hoping that the Covid vaccine is the beginning of the end for this pandemic that has taken such a toll on our neighbors, our communities and our nation. If you choose to get the Covid vaccine (we always support the freedom of choice 🇺🇲🇺🇲) this is our way of saying “thank you” for helping to end this pandemic and getting us back to normal.”
In order to get the free joint, all one has to do is get vaccinated and show up to the dispensary with proof of vaccination.
Millen said he’s considering extending the deadline if not enough people get vaccinated by the end of February to encourage others to take that step so the world “can go back to normal.”
“We support the freedom of choice, everyone chooses what to do, but it’s important people take measures to stop the pandemic by staying home and wearing a mask, or getting a vaccine if they choose to do so,” Millen said. “This is our way of thanking people who do.”
