D.C. Gets Garden Store for Medical Pot Growers

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) A company dubbed the "Walmart of Weed" is putting down roots in America's capital city, sprouting further debate on marijuana.

Blocks from the White House and federal buildings, a company that sells hydroponic supplies to medical marijuana growers is opening its first outlet on the East Coast. The Friday opening of the Washington weGrow store comes as D.C. officials are announcing those eligible to apply for permits to grow marijuana and sell it to dispensaries under the district's medical marijuana law.

WeGrow doesn't sell pot or seeds. The company sees itself providing tools to pioneers of a "green rush," which some project could soon reach nearly $9 billion. But they're taking a gamble.

Sixteen states and the D.C. have legalized medical marijuana, but it's still illegal under federal law.
