WINNIPEG — A Winnipeg-based cannabis producer and retailer is hoping to increase COVID-19 vaccination uptake with a chance to win free joints.
Delta 9's "Joints for Jabs" program is giving away three grand prizes of a one-year supply of cannabis to those who have received two doses of vaccine.
It works out to $100 worth of cannabis per month.
Other prizes include free joints and company apparel.
Delta 9's chief executive officer, John Arbuthnot, says the giveaway was created to encourage all Manitobans to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
The contest runs until Sept. 30, and people can enter to win by visiting any of the company's locations in the province.
Participants will have to present proof they are fully vaccinated by showing their immunization records.
