The thought of it is almost unimaginable, but many think that the company often referred to as the most “evil corporation” in history is now going after the medical marijuana market with Scotts Miracle-Gro.

Please research and do your own investigation before using any chemicals or fertilizers, especially if it involves ANYTHING that you’re putting in your body or using medically.

Scotts Miracle-Gro Looks to Help People Grow Marijuana
– by the Wall Street Journal

By DANA MATTIOLI

Scotts Miracle-Gro Co. has long sold weed killer. Now, it’s hoping to help people grow killer weed.

Scott’s Miracle-Gro is hoping to cash in on the growing medical marijuana business. WSJ’s Dana Mattioli reports.

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.”

But the Marysville, Ohio, company relies on sales at three key retailers—Home Depot Inc., Lowe’s Cos. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc.—for nearly two-thirds of its revenue. With consumers still cautious about spending, the retailers aren’t building new stores as quickly as they used to, making growth for suppliers like Scotts harder to come by. Against that backdrop, Mr. Hagedorn has pushed his regional sales presidents to look for smaller pockets of growth, such as the marijuana market, that together could produce a noticeable bump in sales.

Sixteen states have legalized medical marijuana, the largest being California and Colorado. The market will reach $1.7 billion in sales this year, according to a report by See Change Strategy LLC, an information data services company.

While the report focuses on revenue from growers and dispensaries, Kris Lotlikar, president of See Change, said the market for companies selling hydroponic equipment and professional services is also thriving.

“We see very good growth for these types of companies as the medical-marijuana business grows,” he said.

SCOTTS MIRACLE-GRO, GMO'S, AND MONSANTO:


"1998 also saw Scotts branch out into GM technology, through the acquisition of 80% of Sanford Scientific Inc, “allowing researchers to create desirable varieties of plants with value-added traits far beyond the capabilities of conventional plant breeding techniques”.[7] Scotts also entered into a collaboration with the Monsanto company to “bring the benefits of biotechnology to the multi-billion dollar turfgrass and ornamental plants business.[8] Under the agreement, Scotts and Monsanto agreed to share technologies, including Monsanto's extensive genetic library of plant traits and Scotts' proprietary gene gun technology to produce 'improved' transgenic turfgrass and ornamental plants. Other acquisitions in 1998 included the US company EarthGro Inc. and the continental lawn and garden products company ASEF."

"Scotts relationship with Monsanto became even cosier in 1999, when Scotts completed agreements with the company for exclusive US, Canada, UK, France, Germany and Austria agency and marketing rights to its consumer Roundup herbicide products. Scotts also purchased the remainder of Monsanto's lawn and garden business, which included the pesticide brand Ortho."

Do You Think Monsanto is Helping Your Garden?

by TAMARA

Do we really want the creators of Agent Orange engineering our food? Surprised? Let me share their specialty is neurotoxin POISON. They have already contaminated over 70% of our food supply and infiltrated our political system. Yes indeed, the makers of Round Up and Scott’s Miracle grow are buying up patents to our seeds, our food, and our future. One of their former attorneys now works for our FDA helping to write a bill for their bovine hormone usage in our food supply.

They do not have our best interests at heart. Their GMO foods are making us sick, their Round Up and Miracle Grow toxins are poisoning our earth and their profits are making THEM happy.

Stand up and refuse to buy GMO foods. Mac and cheese for your kids? You might as well hand them poison because 80% of all pre packaged food in the US are GMO. Wondering about fertility rates being so low? Our seeds are becoming sterilized thanks to GMO foods and that trickles into our bodies.

Don’t be fooled by Miracle Gro, produced by Scotts Company an arm of Monsanto. They are a billion dollar chemical company. It’s chemical based and it’s new Organic line is a Marketing ploy. There is no organic watch dog for gardening or cleaning products.

It is INorganic and contains oh so good for us grow crystals made of chemical fertilizers. Scotts also makes Hyponex soil which was studied by Colorado State University and showed poor plant growth. Read the report here“

  2. I am really satisfied that you simply shared this useful information about Marijuana or cannabis. Thc.wiki is a marijuana based wiki for marijuana, marijuana strains, marijuana genetics, etc. Actually Thc.wiki is Wikipedia of marijuana. It’s describes more details about marijuana, different types, marijuana’s advantage, disadvantage, effect, uses, etc about marijuana. Thc.wiki is called Wikipedia of marijuana. If you want to know more details about marijuana Click Here Wikipedia of marijuana genetics

  3. I’ve yet to see documentary evidence that corporate biotech researchers are actively engaged in GMO marijuana research and development, although some marijuana activists have publicly claimed that Monsanto is working on genetic modification of marijuana. I’ve seen evidence that government and corporate scientists are working on genetic modification of marijuana’s biological enemies, such as fusarium wilt, a horrible fungi that can kill marijuana quickly. Thanks.
