iGrow Oakland: The Walmart of Weed?

NEW YORK (CBS) The San Francisco Chronicle calls it the "Walmart of weed."

iGrow, a 15,000-square-foot warehouse near the Oakland Airport, is scheduled to open Thursday. It is a one-stop shop for medicinal marijuana, the paper reports.

The store has a doctor on site to help customers obtain a cannabis card and sells all the necessary equipment for indoor, hydroponic cultivation - from pumps, nutrients and tubing to lights and fans, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

It is believed to be the largest medicinal marijuana dispenser in California.

Should medicinal marijuana stores be outlawed or do you hope a "Walmart of weed" opens near you?
