A Richmond-based medical cannabis company announced this week that it will offer select product for one cent when customers show their valid COVID-19 vaccination card.
The promotion is an effort to help Contra Costa County further increase its vaccination progress, according to 7 Stars Holistic Healing Center, and is available to anyone who has received at least one vaccine dose.
In particular, 7 Stars hopes to help the county reach underserved areas that may not have equitable access to the vaccine. To accomplish that goal, 7 Stars has applied to be a mobile COVID-19 vaccination site through the California Department of Public Health.
"We wanted to offer our platform to help the state achieve their goal of immunity against COVID-19," 7 Stars Executive Director Zee Handoush said in a statement. "We saw other local businesses offering vaccine incentives and we wanted to add cannabis to that growing list. We hope other members of the cannabis community will do the same."
