An unusual holiday decoration — a “Weed Marijuana Leaf Christmas Tree” — has been pulled from Walmart’s website just hours after going viral. The 7-foot tall fake Christmas tree, which bears branches covered in fake marijuana leaves, was being sold for $250 on the retail giant’s website before being pulled last Wednesday afternoon. Walmart did not reveal the reason for pulling the item, but the action came after marijuana news website Cannabist caused the tree to go viral.
The product’s description formerly read:
“This Pot Leaf Christmas tree will ‘light up’ the room and put your mind in the right head-space for holiday cheer. You’ll be able to relax and giggle at the marijuana leaves and decorate it as you please. This alternative Christmas tree is perfect for personal top shelf life at home or as a medical dispensary decoration. Green Wishes and Happy Holidhaze!”
Talk about being on that “Christmas high!”
