Walmart.com has ‘Weed Marijuana Leaf’ Christmas trees
For those looking to “‘light up’ the room” with this “Weed Marijuana Leaf Christmas Tree,” be prepared to shell out $249.99 to an unlikely source: Walmart.com.
While available at the retail behemoth’s website, the nearly seven-foot-tall faux pot leaf tree is actually sold and shipped by an outside vendor called Brands On Sale, Inc. They write, “You’ll be able to relax and giggle at the marijuana leaves and decorate it as you please.”
Since the bow and ornaments are not included, you’ll have to get creative with the decorations. Perhaps make some tiny snowflakes out of rolling papers? Or add some candy-cane-striped pipe ornaments?
Just don’t forget to leave out some cannabis cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve.
Here’s a closer look at those “weed marijuana” leaves:

Dec. 15 (UPI) — 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 faux marijuana leaves, was being sold for $250 on the retail giant’s website before being pulled Wednesday afternoon.
Walmart did not reveal the reason for the item, which was sold and shipped by third-party novelty company Brands On Sale Inc., being removed from the website, 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!”
