ACT UP New York has come up with a novel incentive to get fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. They’ll pay you to show them your filled-out vaccination card. And in return, they’ll give you a free joint. That’s right. A joint for a jab. So far the group has done two pop up events. Act Ups Brandon Cuicchi said  “Joints For Jabs 1 was so successful that we want to continue the program through the summer to encourage vaccination among medicinal and recreational marijuana users and young people. Now that vaccine demand is slowing, it’s clear that vaccines will need to go where people already congregate such as parks and public spaces in order to reach them.” The group reports that they gave away approximately 300 joints. They say they hope to offer walk-up vaccines on-demand at their next popup event.
