ARIZONA– “WeGrow”, an Arizona superstore for marijuana-growing supplies, nicknamed “the Walmart of Weed”, will be the first chain outside of California to sell products devoted to growing cannabis.
Arizona voters approved medical cannabis last fall, and nearly 4,000 Arizonans became state-authorized marijuana users since April 15.
WeGrow founder Dhar Mann, 27, predicts the medical marijuana business to be billion-dollar industry.
“Medical marijuana cultivating, dispensing, and consuming will exist with or without governmental approval,” Mann said. “It’s time to tax and regulate this industry so legitimate business people and patients are not criminalized.”
