Joints for jabs: Pot-up at a pop-up COVID vaccination clinic

Remedy Tulalip is giving away cannabis cigarettes to those 21 and older who get a shot on Tuesday.

TULALIP — There is such a thing as a free joint.

Get a single dose of Johnson & Johnson and get a cannabis cigarette.

Remedy Tulalip is having a “Joints for Jabs” pop-up vaccination clinic from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday.

The clinic will be in the parking area of the shop at 9226 34th Ave. NE at Quil Ceda Village, near Home Depot. After the shot, people must stay for 15 minutes for reaction monitoring.

Anyone 18 and older can get a shot, but you must be at least 21 to take home a joint.

Pot, beer, doughnuts, tickets, money and merchandise are among the incentives nationwide to encourage everyone to get a COVID-19 shot. States are getting in the act and loosening freebie restrictions.

“We always wanted to give out something good to our customers. The state never allowed us. What better reason,” Remedy Tulalip store manager Jennifer Ashman said.

The joint brand is Stingers.

“It kind of goes with the whole getting a shot,” Ashman said. “We’re giving you a stinger for a little sting.”

The clinic is a collaboration between the store and Tulalip Clinical Pharmacy.

If successful, there might be a second clinic, said Kelvin Lee, pharmacy director.

The pharmacy has vaccinated frontline workers, teachers and students.

“This is a good opportunity for us to target a different population,” Lee said. “We want to expand the reach. We are hoping to attract people from all walks of life.”

Remedy Tulalip is owned by the Tulalip Tribes, a sovereign nation with its own governing body and laws. The shop opened in 2018 and carries cannabis and CBD products from about 200 vendors.

Advance online registration is available, though not required.
