This Marijuana Activist is Enticing Vaccine Skeptics With Free Weed

COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy is a serious problem. It’s so serious that some governments have considered paying people to get the jab.

Enter Adam Eidinger, a Washington, D.C. marijuana activist who’s been fighting for legalization for years. He recently started "Joints For Jabs," which offers free cannabis to anyone in D.C. who gets the COVID-19 vaccine.

“We wanted to say, 'Look, the science that supports cannabis being safe and effective for a host of issues, including anxiety from vaccines, also supports the science behind the vaccine,'" Eidinger told TMZ.

The COVID-19 vaccine doesn’t just offer personal protection. Scientists say widespread vaccination is the key to effective ‘herd immunity.’
