Arizona’s summer heatwave is scorching the entire state. But for cannabis consumers the high heat comes with a silver lining: free weed!
Mint Cannabis, a medical and recreational marijuana dispensary chain with five locations in Arizona, announced in June that it is giving a free pre-roll to customers aged 21 and above at any of its five metro Phoenix dispensaries on any day in 2023 when the temperature at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport reaches 110 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, as per the official reading. And no purchase is necessary.
Arizona has already endured over 22 days this year with the heat exceeding 110°F. And weather forecasts show the hot temperatures will likely continue all of July, which means the state will continue making new high-heat records.
Here is a current look at the number of 110+F days so far this year. Phoenix is now sitting at 22 days which is above the yearly average of 21. We are currently forecasting several more days in the 110s through this weekend, adding to our tally. #azwx pic.twitter.com/KI5XOHK9G3
