Joints for Jabs: Vaccinated adults to get free weed in New York in honor of 4/20

In honor of “4/20” and continued efforts to get more New Yorkers vaccinated, a group of activists will hand out free marijuana joints in Union Square to adults who can prove they are fully vaccinated.

From 11 a.m. until 4:20 p.m. each person 21 and older who shows proof of their COVID-19 vaccination can pick up a free joint on the south side of the Manhattan park, near the George Washington statue.

The ‘Joints For Jabs’ event was organized by marijuana advocates and longtime AIDS activist group ACT UP NY.

Activist Dana Beal stated that, ‘The marijuana community supports the science behind the COVID vaccine and what better way to encourage cannabis users to get vaccinated than to give out free pot’.

The weed giveaway comes after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation legalizing recreational Marijuana possession and use by those 21 and older in the state.

Organizers said they were inspired by Krispy Kreme’s recent promotion offering free donuts to people who show proof of vaccination.
