We Grow, 'Wal-Mart Of Weed,' Set To Open (Can you believe this?)

Walmart Weed

A retail store billing itself as "the Wal-Mart of weed" will open its doors in Sacramento tomorrow, the Sacramento Bee reports.

The 10,000-square-foot weGrow outlet, advertised as a one-stop shop for legal growers seeking supplies and training, claims the honor of being the industry's first-ever national franchise. Look for outposts of the self-proclaimed "first honest hydro store," which started as a solo warehouse operation in Oakland last year, to sprout up in Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, and even New Jersey in the coming months.

The Ganja Galleria doesn't sell any actual pot--it just sells supplies, provides classes, and offers an on-site doctor to help customers choose their favorite strain.

According to the Bee, the store's founder chose its opening location strategically. And he has no qualms being forthcoming about its purpose:

"I just thought it was a statement to have something close to the state Capitol," said Dhar Mann, who founded the original iGrow in January 2010. "It's a statement of how progressive the industry has become. We're all about coming out of the shadows."

With California, 14 other states and the District of Columbia legalizing marijuana for medical use, the hydroponics industry is exploding. But, unlike weGrow, most hydroponics outlets avoid any mention of marijuana, billing themselves only as generic suppliers for people growing anything from peppers to rosemary.

Under very strict guidelines cause it has the potential for abuse now. I know for a fact that Rastaman dem smoke it ti commune with JAH. I know some people who have smoke it for years and it does not bother them where you also have people who have not progressed in their life at all. It does help with cancer patients,especially those on kemo.From my very personal experiences, strengths and hopes that it can lead to all the other heavy drugs. I  have found in my life people who are genius , or very near to it don't lose that many brain cells to the point of dysfunction, but people who did not start out with much of brains loose a lot of potential brain power. I know this from pure facts. Not conjuncture. NO NO NO. I tell you dat gyal made me sooooooo vex man

@Watson- LOL!! You are a pretty good sport! No all white people aren't the devil. But blacks are going to be suspicious, maybe even paranoid, for a long time. Who could blame us? When we let our guard down is when the s*** happens.

@Deborah- LOL!

@Kim- if there was ever a man who needed to roll a joint and chill the f' out, it's swartzanigga.

Watson- You do have to wonder why for so long the white people make weed out to be some deadly dangerous substance. A demon drug, a pathway to crack and heroin.


Now all the sudden that they no longer would have to rely on carribean and spanish speaking countries for their supply of marijuanna, it's becoming OK and your starting to see Marijaunna everywhere.

You might be offended to hear us talk, but it is just a fact, even white people know it. White people would not do anything that does not profit them above all. Them as "whites" and as"elites".


Still wish they would legalize that s*** in NY though.
