Off The Bus Headshot

Obama Volunteers Transform San Fran Bong Shop To New HQ

An OffTheBus tipster in San Francisco noticed that Obama volunteers have set up shop in the former home of West Coast Growers, your one-stop-shop for 'complete indoor growing'.

The campaign's northern California HQ is in Oakland, but volunteers in San Francisco raised money to rent a local space.

Overheard by our tipster:

While I was there (also took the time to finally register in California) two skateboarders came buy in classic skateboard, SF fashion: "Hey, didn't this used to be West Coast Growers?"

Response: Yes.

Skateboarders: Oh man, what happened to West Coast Growers?

Response: I don't know, they shut down.

Perhaps Team Obama should change their pre-rally cheer 'Fire it up, ready to go!' to 'Fire it up, ready to grow.'
