4/20 Day Deals to Curb the Munchies From Pizza Hut, White Castle, Kraft and More

Today (April 20, 2020) is 4/20 Day, also known as National Pot Day—a day where people across American celebrate marijuana.

The plant-based drug is still criminalized by the American Federal Government—even though it is fully legalized in 11 states— and there are calls for cannabis to be legalized nationally. Most recently, a study suggested marijuana could reduce anxiety-causing connections in the brain. The World Health Organization (WHO) says the drug has therapeutic uses for nausea and vomiting in the advanced stages of diseases such as cancer and AIDS.

But whether you're a cannabis enthusiast or not, you can benefit from the deals on offer. Of course, Newsweek has vetted these deals to make sure they can be delivered to your door safely during lockdown.
