Monster marijuana: potent cannabis strain sells big in Seattle, January 30

30 Jan 2014

A powerful new variety of marijuana called "Beast Mode OG" has taken the Seattle market by storm -- and no one knows this better than weed grower Nate Johnson. He is doing brisk business selling the new strain, which has a higher marijuana content and is named after the moniker of Seattle Seahawks football player Marshawn Lynch. Johnson has even made Seahawks marijuana cupcakes, which are a bestseller. The production and sale of marijuana for medical and recreational use has been allowed in Washington State since November 2012. All photos from Reuters
