The Las Vegas Lights announced a new partnership with a marijuana company Friday.
In a tweet, the team said they were going to wait until 4:20 p.m. but they were too excited to wait.
Nuwu Cannabis, which proclaims itself as the “largest cannabis store in the world," is partnering with the team.
“We have large signs for our beer and liquor sponsors but no one would ever ask me if it’s OK for our players to drink,” Lights owner Brett Lashbrook said. “It’s legalized in the state of Nevada.”
The Las Vegas Lights said they are the first professional sports team in the U.S. to partner with a marijuana dispensary.
