“It’s no coincidence that mmjDailyDeals.com chose 420 to launch the service in the Springs – 420, or April 20th, has become synonymous with celebrating marijuana,” according to a press release.
“The social couponing service will be providing special ‘sweet’ deals in Colorado Springs today to celebrate 420, while also contributing to ongoing relief efforts in Japan,” the release states.
Colorado Springs will benefit financially, Website founder John Molinare said.
“We’re going to do what we’ve already done in Denver, which is to boost the economy by helping small businesses not only help themselves, but also help the community by assisting patients with finding affordable medication,” he said in a statement.
The website’s deals will be unveiled today during the 4/20 festival at America the Beautiful Park. The website is one of the sponsors.
“We are excited to partner with mmjDailyDeals.com. They have an exciting product that will help us reach new patients and help patients get great value,” Shane Zacher, owner of New Horizons medical marijuana center in Colorado Springs, said in a statement.
The website and its partners will donate $4.20 of every deal to the so-called Joints For Japan campaign, which benefits organizations assisting with earthquake and tsumani relief efforts in Japan.
