A leading garden-care company is hoping to cash in on the growing medical marijuana industry.

The CEO of Scotts Miracle-Gro says he wants to target the pot market in an effort to boost sales.

Miracle-Gro makes products mostly for lawn and garden care and until now has not marketed to medical marijuana growers.

The company typically relies on retailers like Home Depot to sell its products.

Medical marijuana is now legal in 16 states, including California.
