SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) — Police are investigating after an improvised explosive device was thrown through the window of a South Lake Tahoe marijuana dispensary on the eve of a marijuana holiday.
The Douglas County Bomb Squad responded to reports about 10 p.m. Thursday of an IED in the Patient to Patient Collective, one of the town’s three dispensaries.
They found the device had been thrown through one of the business’ back windows and caused a small fire.
The Tahoe Daily Tribune reports nobody was hurt. The dispensary was closed, but two employees were working inside at the time of the incident.
April 20 is an unofficial holiday celebrated by some marijuana users. The number 420 has been associated with marijuana use for decades, though its origins are murky.
