Scotts Miracle-Gro, its sales hurting from the pullback in big-box expansion, is looking into new sources of revenues for its lawn and garden products. One of them, according to CEO Jim Hagedorn, is medical marijuana.
“I want to target the pot market,” Hagedorn told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published June 14. “There’s no good reason we haven’t.”
Its nickname is "the Walmart of weed."
Described as the nation's only hydroponics franchise that openly talks about medical marijuana, weGrow opened a 21,000-sq.-ft. store in Phoenix earlier this month.
