“As part of its strategy to vaccinate more of its population, Washington State will allow adults to claim
a free marijuana joint when they receive a Covid-19 vaccination shot.”
—The New York Times
There once was a man named Eugene
Who chose to forgo the vaccine.
He snapped, “That’s my druthers,
So stuff it and don’t intervene.”
But then he was offered some pot
Contingent on getting the shot.
This highly inventive
And clever incentive
Converted him right on the spot.
