Miracle Weed

A while back, Bob pondered whether or not medical marijuana would be a covered expense under ObamaCare©. Well, we're still waiting on that one, but at least one unlikely player has stepped forward to offer assistance to, um, "providers:"

"Scotts Miracle-Gro Co. [see note] has long sold weed killer. Now, it's hoping to help people grow killer weed ... Scotts Chief Executive Jim Hagedorn said he is exploring targeting medical marijuana as well as other niches to help boost sales at his lawn and garden company."

[ed: Formerly Stern's Miracle Gro. Just sayin'.]

Turns out, 16 of the 58 states "have legalized medical marijuana ... The market will reach $1.7 billion in sales this year."

That's a lot of extra pizzas and Doritos.

One wonders if Scott's is bucking for an ObamaWaiver©.
