Tuesday/ whatever it takes

The incentives for getting the vaccine are getting wilder and wilder.
Yesterday, the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) greenlighted state-licensed cannabis retailers, to offer one pre-rolled marijuana joint ‘to adult consumers who receive a vaccination at an in-store vaccination clinic’.

So add the ‘joint for a jab’ incentive to the list of free beers, free donuts, free pizza, scholarships (for kids), cash prizes, free air tickets and who-knows-what-else.

Poster at the corner of 11th Avenue and Pike Street. Yes: your mama and your auntie approve of the vaccine. Go get it.
This graphic shows the consequences of politicizing the pandemic in 2020. It also appears that the J&J pause did damage to people that had been unenthusiastic about the vaccine, or entrenched the views of those that were against it from the start.
I still say: If you’re a SELFISH person, you should think: I don’t want to get sick, I must get the vaccine for myself. (You can get the Pfizer or Moderna one). If you’re an ‘IT’S FOR THE GREATER GOOD’ person, you go: I need to do my part, I must get the vaccine. But large numbers of people just close their ears and eyes, and still do nothing.
