What Next? Contest: Marijuana Store - May 8, 2009

Click here for results of last week's What Next? Contest: Tax Code

Results: Far out, man! In light of California’s decision to legalize medical marijuana stores—and the fact that applications are pouring in and thousands have already opened—we asked you to predict the name of the first cannabis chain store. You blew in with: Weed-Mart (of course). Dealer Joe’s. Home dePot. And, alternatively, Office dePot. And lots of variations—lots—on Tokes R Us. While we got a huge and unprecedented response to this contest, it is still only the first person to send in an entry who gets the credit. But to us, you are all high. High on our list, that is.
