Arizona dispensaries offer free edible marijuana who has received to Covid-19 Vaccine
Written by Redacción Mota Radio on 20 March, 2021
Vaccination against Covid-19 is seen as the only hope to end the pandemic that has affected thousands of people; therefore, to encourage users to carry out this necessary process, a chain of dispensaries in Arizona is offering a very attractive incentive to those who have received the injection against the coronavirus: free marijuana edibles.
The offer from The Mint dispensaries states that those over the age of 21 who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus and who visit one of their Arizona locations can receive a free cannabis edible during the month of March.
To receive the free edible, it will not be necessary to purchase anything beforehand; only a valid vaccination card must be shown as proof that they received at least one injection that has been successfully administered. The offer is good at The Mint dispensaries in Tempe and Mesa, as well as the new Phoenix location.
“Pot for shots” are also available in D.C. and Michigan
Arizona is not the only place where coronavirus-vaccinated users can get free marijuana, as this initiative has been done elsewhere in the U.S. country.
The Greenhouse dispensary in Walled Lake, Michigan, offered free pre-rolled joints to anyone who showed proof that they had received the Covid-19 vaccine.
The “Pot for Shots” promotion was in partnership with UBaked Cannabis Company, which provided the free pre-rolls. This program, which began in January, ended in February.
Cannabis activists with DC Marijuana Justice (DCMJ) in the nation’s capital also announced a similar offer. When the vaccination sites have been opened to the public, members of the cannabis policy reform group plan to distribute free bags of marijuana to all those who have received the vaccine. Times and locations will be announced when information is available.
“We are looking for ways to safely celebrate the end of the pandemic and we know that nothing brings people together like cannabis,” said Nikolas Schiller, co-founder of the group.
