DENVER - A local nonprofit hit the streets of Downtown Denver on Christmas Eve and gave away a thousand free, pre-rolled marijuana joints to the homeless and anyone else who wanted one. "Merry Christmas and a puff puff, New Year's," said one woman who accepted a joint.

Nick Dicenzo, the founder of Cannabis Can and the one responsible for handing out the free weed, said they're trying to raise awareness about homelessness and encourage people to donate to their cause.

The cause? To raise money to buy several RV's and provide restrooms and showers for those in need.

Dicenzo said their goal is to use weed for good and to bring people together to make a difference.

"'Cannabis can make a difference,' is kind of what we're standing for," said Dicenzo.
