US Weed Activists To Hand Out 5,000 'Doob Tubes' At Vaccination Centres On 4/20

Weed activists in the US plan to hand out 5,000 'doob tubes' at vaccination centres on 4/20.

DC Marijuana Justice (DCMJ) will use the hallowed day in cannabis culture that is 20 April to give away free weed as part of its 'Joints For Jabs' initiative.

The hope is that the lure of a grassy gift will encourage people to get the Covid-19 vaccine and reduce the threat posed by the disease.

They plan to distribute the joints in Washington, DC - where recreational cannabis use is legal.

"I got really motivated when I heard about protests at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles by anti-vaccination activists, who are also well-known cannabis activists," DCMJ co-founder Adam Eidinger told LADbible.

"And I thought, 'Wow, why are these cannabis activists - who I respect - putting any kind of energy into this?'

"To be anti-vax is to be in a death cult as far as I'm concerned."

So far the DCMJ has amassed 2,200 doob tubes; around 1,600 of these contain one 'king-size' joint and the rest contain two smaller 'dog walker' joints. But it's hoped they can more than double this pot pot before the big day.

Adam said: "We're trying to get to 5,000 tubes - that should be enough to easily cover every single vaccination centre in the nation's capitol in Washington, DC. There's about 30 vaccination centres, last time I checked, and they're doing between 4,000 and 5,000 vaccinations a day.

"I don't think every person will take the joint, it's probably going to be about half the people will take it. But I want to blow it out of the water; I want to make sure no one is disappointed on April 20."

He added: "You know, 4/20 has been kind of a self-indulgent holiday over the years... But you know, this is not a time for self-indulgence. This is a time for action, and doing something that's going to encourage good public behaviour."

In keeping with the public health message behind Joints For Jabs, all the spliffs will be filled using a machine - so there's no licking going on - and the doob tubes containing two joints will actually be more suitable for the casual or occasional dope dabbler.

"We have some tubes that have two joints in them because they're small joints," Adam explained.

"They're called dog walkers. It's when you see a joint that's like, small. It's called a dog walker. It's meant for walking the dog for one person."

However, it is the king-size joints which Adam is particularly enthusiastic about - with each one containing a full gram of weed, comprised from a variety of strains.

Adam said: "What's really exciting about this is that it's maybe six strains, maybe more, I don't know, it depends on what we have available - we're grinding it up.

"But it's not one strain. It's like a mixture, a potpourri, a salad of cannabis. And so you've got indica and sativa in here.

"One guy, he said, 'We call these zombie joints', because they get you really, really high, because you're getting all these different cannabinoids from different strains. So I don't think most people will be able to get through this joint by themselves. You might have to put it down a few times, before you finish it."
