Wash. Pot Grower Gets A Shock When He Tries To Donate Money

PROSSER, Wash. (AP) — A marijuana grower who had trouble giving away $14,000 has finally found someone to accept the donations.

Fireweed Farms owner Randy Williams made $600,000 last month in the first recreational pot auction in Washington and wanted to share some of the proceeds.

The Prosser School District said no thanks; it would send the wrong message. The Prosser branch of the Boys and Girls Club also just said no to drug money, saying it would distract from its mission.

Williams told the Yakima Herald-Republic that he finally gave $1,000 to the Prosser VFW post and $13,000 to a local needy family, which asked not to be identified.

Williams said Monday that his phone had been ringing off the hook with people who wanted the money.
