High Hopes at Miracle-Gro in Medical Marijuana Field
Scotts Miracle-Gro Co. has long sold weed killer. Now, it's hoping to help people grow killer weed.
In an unlikely move for the head of a major company, 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.
"I want to target the pot market," Mr. Hagedorn said in an interview. "There's no good reason we haven't."
Ah, I'm sure the illegal pot growers have now decided to give Mirclegro a try. Actually Scotts has always specialized in making grass grow better, and though pot isn't a grass I'm sure they got the stuff that has what it takes to make killer marijuana plants.
