Prosser pot farmer finally finds a home for donation

PROSSER — After being twice rejected, a Prosser pot farmer this week found two homes for the $14,000 donation he’s been shopping around Benton County after holding the state’s first-ever pot auction last month.

The bulk of the money — about $13,000 — is headed to an anonymous family in the Prosser area, while the rest is going to the Prosser VFW, according to the Yakima-Herald.

Fireweed Farms owner Randy Williams raised the majority of the $14,000 from the sale of a low-grade marijuana lot during a backyard pot auction Nov. 15 where Williams netted about $600,000 from the legal sale of about 400 pounds.

Williams initially tried to donate the $14,000 to the Prosser School District, but the school board swiftly rejected the offer.
