The non-governmental organization DCMJ, which advocates for the legalization of marijuana in the United States, organized a free distribution of cannabis for vaccinated citizens in the center of New York.
Nicholas Schiller, one of the organizers of the action and the founder of the DCMJ organization, explained that this action is a great way to encourage Americans to get vaccinated against coronavirus, if, for example, they could not decide to do it earlier.
Despite the fact that Sputnik V is not available in America, if a person brings a certificate that he has been vaccinated with this vaccine, he will also be given a cigarette. It is noted that more than four thousand people came for marijuana during the day.
However, not all Americans approached this honestly, some of them tried to get a gift for a certificate of the presence of antibodies. In addition, it is emphasized that in Union Square, where the action took place, there were also those people who were against this method of campaigning for vaccinations.
вЂњI don't think marijuana should be used as propaganda. Because many people use it for medical purposes. This is not a joke. It's not something to be taken lightly, вЂњ Jessica said.
Earlier, the Upper House of the New York State Legislature passed a bill to legalize the sale of marijuana for recreational purposes. In 38 of the 50 US states, the use of cannabis derivatives is allowed for medical purposes, and in another 15 states and the Metropolitan District of Columbia вЂ” for recreational purposes.
