A marijuana grow room in Sodo blazes from a dozen 1,000-watt bulbs. The light is so intense that Mark Arnold, assistant grower for pioneering pot producer AuricAG, wears blue-tinted lenses to cut the glare.

Surveying the tall plants — made happy, Arnold believes, by his own positive attitude — he beamed: “Who says money doesn’t grow on trees?”

If all goes according to plan, AuricAG could fetch $2 million a year for its products.
