Legal Pot In Colorado Washington State Poses Growing Dilemma

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - It may be called weed, but marijuana is legendarily hard to grow.
    
Now that the drug has been made legal in Washington and Colorado, growers face a dilemma. State-sanctioned gardening coaches can help folks cultivate tomatoes or zucchini. But both states have instructed master gardeners and extension agents not to show people the best way to grow marijuana.
    
That's leaving some would-be marijuana gardeners looking to the private sector for help raising the temperamental plant.
    
Marijuana classes are popping up in Colorado as people seek help growing their own pot. Students run from baby boomers who haven't grown marijuana since the 1960s to young entrepreneurs who want to become professional pot growers.
