To The San Francisco Chronicle it's the "Walmart of Weed."

One might also say it's the "Home Depot of High Times". Or maybe the "Best Buy of Buds". How about the "Target of THC"?

As The Oakland Tribune reports, iGrow -- a 15,000-square-foot superstore -- is now open for business in Oakland. Its "shelves are stocked with various types of grow lights, fans, plant nutrients and additives, and growing containers" for "medical marijuana patients who want to grow their own cannabis plants."
