I’m not sure what to make of this:
A retailer selling tools to grow cannabis has opened in the US capital, just a few miles from the White House.
WeGrow sells plant food and lighting – but no cannabis or seeds – to help cultivators grow medical marijuana.
The chain, dubbed the “Walmart of weed”, launches its latest outlet just as Washington’s medical marijuana laws come into effect.
Is WeGrow a legitimate business run by people that love to give the state the middle finger or is it run by agents of the Drug Enforcement Agency who are using the chain as a clever type of sting operation?
The store claims to sell people equipment so they can grow marijuana at home:
WeGrow’s founder says he hopes his company will help create a “green rush” by selling the equipment needed to grow cannabis at home.
“The more that businesses start to push the envelope by showing that this is a legitimate industry, the further we’re going to be able to go in changing people’s minds,” Dhar Mann told the Associated Press news agency.
If the chain was targeting the medical marijuana business I would imagine they would setup a system to ensure they only sell to licensed growers, although I could be wrong. While I hope this is an actual business and not a fancy sting operation I’m left wondering. Has anybody heard of this chain before? Is there any news regarding their customers mysteriously being arrested after busying supplies from one of the stores?
