OAKLAND — Even the novice medical cannabis grower can sprout perfect pot if those at iGrow selling the "big bud boxes" have it right. These new stainless steel containers will be on display at the new cannabis growing superstore in Oakland during a "Cannaland" party Monday.

"Basically, a person can roll the box into a garage or basement or backyard, hook up the water and electricity, and begin growing cannabis plants.

It also creates less of a nuisance for neighbors, and they require little or no home modification."
