American Weed Dispensary Is Giving Away Free Joints To Anyone Who Gets Covid-19 Vaccine
An American weed dispensary will give out free bud to people who get the coronavirus vaccine.
Those who get the jab will have to provide proof when they rock up to Greenhouse of Walled Lake and once it's certified they'll get one free pre-rolled joint.
Owner of the Michigan-based dispensary, Jerry Millen, said in a statement: "Our goal is to raise awareness of the importance of getting the COVID-19 vaccination as we as a community battle this horrible pandemic.
"'Pot for Shots' is our way of showing our commitment in assisting helping the community get back to normalcy. We support the safe and responsible use of cannabis and hope this is the beginning of the end of this insidious pandemic."
People wanting to get in on the scheme don't have to buy additional weed or sign up to anything in order to get their joint. You have to be 21 years or older and have an unexpired medical card.
Once you get the jab, you'll get the weed.
Michigan has recorded more than half a million cases of coronavirus since the pandemic began, and nearly 14,000 deaths. It ranks as the 24th in America for the number of coronavirus infections after previously sitting at 20th.

In America, more than 24.2 million people have contracted Covid-19 and more than 400,000 people have died.
Michigan is trying to rollout the coronavirus vaccine as fast as possible, with hospital workers, vulnerable citizens and those aged over 65 prioritised first.
Some state and federal workers, as well as jail and prison staff, have also been placed high on the list to get the jab first.
However, the state has found it difficult to keep up with the demand.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer says a high demand is a good thing but also wanted to reassure people they will get their vaccine in time.
"Please be patient, we do not have enough vaccines and it takes time to administer, but we are building quickly and it looks like we're going to be coming into more vaccines soon," Whitmer said.
"This is the greatest tool we have to end this pandemic."
There have been more than 444,000 requests for the vaccine, however only 258,100 doses have been allocated for this week. That includes 117,850 first doses and 140,250-second doses.
