420 Deals: Lyft, Pizza Hut and More Specials on Weed's Biggest Holiday

People all across America will celebrate marijuana's biggest holiday, 4/20, on Saturday, and a number of businesses are helping cannabis enthusiasts and supporters enjoy the plant's day of recognition.

It's believed 4/20 was started by a group of California teens who would regularly smoke marijuana at 4:20 p.m. As their ritual spread among others, the code 420 was born and used as a way for folks to identify themselves as marijuana-friendly, as the plant is technically viewed by the federal government as a Schedule 1 illicit drug.

Now that marijuana has been legalized recreationally and medicinally in a number states across the country, many people use 4/20, or April 20, as a day to celebrate the milestones the plant has made in legislation while advising and advocating on the many barriers that still need to break in regards to some views on cannabis.

A few retailers in the U.S. are helping folks get their point across by participating in the 4/20 celebration on Saturday. Various businesses will offer discounts, specials and deals in honor of 4/20. See the full list of participating companies below.
