LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The marijuana holiday 420 is going to be a little different this year since public gatherings are banned. However, a Las Vegas dispensary is using the holiday to give back to at-risk seniors.
The coronavirus pandemic has forced Planet 13 to temporarily shut its doors, so they're getting creative.
They have already been using their on-site restaurant to help feed Las Vegas area seniors. Now, they're taking that initiative one step further.
For every delivery that's made on 420, Planet 13 will donate $1 to their charity.
