Imagine being told you can get free drugs in exchange for receiving a COVID-19 shot. Would that appeal to you as someone in their early 20s? Because in California you only have to be 21-years-old to get this deal.
For the more impressionable youngsters out there this may convince them that not only is the government “cool” but it will take care of them at all times.
This is not good.
From The Daily Wire:
Residents of Long Beach, California, ages 21 and older who get inoculated at an upcoming pop-up clinic will receive a token redeemable for one pre-rolled marijuana joint “to encourage equitable distribution of the COVID vaccine,” organizers say.
The incentive, called “Joints for Jabs LBC,” also aims to “promote safe practices for Long Beach residents to light up this Summer.”
Long Beach is known for being the home of rappers like Snoop Dogg and reggae rock band Sublime, whose music has popularized the drug in American society.
“Cannabis is part of our Long Beach culture and to safely share a joint without contributing to the spread of COVID-19, we must all do our part to get vaccinated,” said James Suazo, executive director with Long Beach Forward, a non-profit that supports the city’s low-income communities of color. “With the delta variant becoming the dominant COVID-19 strain in Los Angeles County, we want our unvaccinated neighbors to catch a free marijuana strain instead so we can protect each other.”
Long Beach isn’t the first city to offer weed for the jab. But that doesn’t make it right.
From Fox News:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is selling merchandise poking fun at Dr. Anthony Fauci over his support for strict coronavirus restrictions.
For the price of $12, supporters of DeSantis can help his re-election campaign by purchasing a beer koozie that says, “Don’t Fauci my Florida.”

Dr. Fauci has been the face of COVID-19 for far too long. It’s high time the nation’s highest paid public official takes a hike.
