Three stabbed, 1 fatally, outside pot club

SACRAMENTO, CA The assaults Wednesday morning were outside the R&R Wellness Collective marijuana shop in South Sacramento. Authorities say they do not know if marijuana had anything to do with the stabbings.

The Sacramento Bee reports that police have a suspect in custody, although no names have been released.

The victims were among two groups of people who got into a fight in the parking lot outside the dispensary.

Police say R&R Wellness was having a two-for-one promotion in honor of the annual 420 Day commemorated by pot enthusiasts on April 20 because "420" is a nickname for marijuana.
