Randy Williams of Fireweed Farm in Prosser, Washington is auctioning off the largest crop of legally grown marijuana in U.S. history!
Saturday is the day, Washington retailers have been waiting for. Farmers have been working their crops all spring and summer and now its time to go to market and sell!
Marijuana retailers have been fighting low supply which has led to higher prices for high quality marijuana. The outdoor harvest has the potential to drive down prices by drastically increasing supply for retail shelves.
Grown outdoors, marijuana is much more susceptible to damage from pests and wind but the harvest can be much larger and more cost efficient due not having to pay for the electricity or cost of buying grow lights.
While store owners in colorado often grow most of their own marijuana, Washington’s law separates growers, processors and retailers.
USA TODAY estimates the price for this crop could reach 6 million dollars.
