    there used to be a grow supply store where The Press dry cleaners is now on Columbia, just above the intersection with 18th. Headline makes it seem like there has never been one in the ‘hood.

      I believe the headline is meant to be tongue in cheek, as yes, there are and have historically been plenty of places to buy pipes and grow lights in adams morgan.

    • I was kidding. That was Urban Sustainable: https://www.popville.com/2012/06/urban-sustainable-gardening-store-closes-in-adams-morgan/ Not to mention the hemp store and all the head shops of yesteryear

        Urban Sustainable was a really great shop. It was very useful to those of us who grow things other than MJ indoors. I miss it. The owners were really knowledgable. It’s too bad they couldn’t make it until legalization, because the legal MJ business would likely have been profitable enough to support the rest.

    I saw this from across the street last weekend and assumed it was a pressure washing business.

    Problem with Urban Sustainable was they weren’t business oriented enough. I went in asking for something they didn’t have in stock and, rather than offering to order it for me, they told me how to make it on my own.
    Very nice of them but I realized then that their idealism would lead to their downfall as a profitable operation. A little ahrsd of their time, too.

    So where can one buy a bowl in AM today? I only found one online, and the reviews said selection was limited and overpriced.

      Capitol Hemp, i believe, has reopened…they usually have a nice spread of bowls in there.
