'Walmart of Weed' set to open in California

A 10,000-square-foot Sacramento gardening emporium that opens Saturday with how-to experts and merchandise to help medical marijuana patients grow pot. 

The cavernous weGrow hydroponics store marketing itself as a retail outlet is the first national franchise for a company that bills itself as a supply and training destination for legal pot growers. In coming months, weGrow plans to open stores in Arizona, Colorado, New Jersey and Oregon.

The Sacramento Bee reports the enterprise started in Oakland last year as a warehouse store called iGrow.
Weed isn't sold or grown at the store. In the past, hydroponics outlets have avoided any mention of marijuana because pot cultivation is illegal under federal law. But hydroponics stores have exploded as states approve medical marijuana use.

  5. i agree with dr.goodsex, this is gonna put a huge dent in the dealers profits, which means they will have to escalate to harder drugs to sell, meaning more high school kids will soon be on harder drugs. its the way of the free market, fuck people over, get rich
