Marijuana Department Store Opens in California

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) -- First there was Home Depot, now there is the Walmart of weed. That's the term being used to describe a store set to open in Sacramento on Saturday.

The 10,000 square foot marijuana emporium is the first of its kind, and is being billed as the place where growers of medical marijuana can come for supplies and training, according to a report by the Sacramento Bee. The store goes by the name weGrow, and while it does not actually sell marijuana, it offers all the necessary manufacturing tools and information.

The weGrow operation was born out of a warehouse in Oakland, Calif., and its operators are hoping it becomes the first national franchise of its kind. The company also plans to open stores in New Jersey, Colorado, Oregon, and Arizona.
