Workers puts on the finishing touches to WeGrow store in northeast Washington, Thursday, March 29, 2012, in preparation for its Friday opening. A company dubbed the "Walmart of Weed" is putting down roots in America's capital city, sprouting further debate on marijuana _ medical or otherwise. Just a few miles from the White House and federal buildings, a company that candidly caters to medical marijuana growers is opening up its first outlet on the East Coast. The opening of the weGrow store on Friday in Washington coincides with the first concrete step in implementing a city law allowing residents with certain medical conditions to purchase pot.
