The first twenty pot shops in Washington state are set to legally open their doors, but before business can even begin in the Evergreen State (no really, that’s what they actually call themselves) they may already be out of product!

Walmart May Or May Not Become A Major Healthcare Provider

Walmart is making MIGHT be making moves to become a major healthcare provider!

Sources reported that the largest retailer in the U.S. sent out a request for potential partners last month that would help the chain become "the largest provider of primary care services in the nation." According to the document from the company:

"Walmart intends to build a national, integrated, low-cost primary care healthcare platform that will provide preventative and chronic care services that are currently out of reach for millions of Americans. Walmart intends to do this in an affordable and accessible way while maintaining or improving quality outcomes. Walmart seeks partners who have a care model or capability that can help dramatically drive down the cost of care, while maintaining or improving quality on a national level."

Shoppers could have expected services including simple physicals, urine tests, and vaccinations, but now we're not so sure.

Since the story broke, Walmart is DENYING their healthcare expansion plans and have called the document that outlines their plans "overwritten and incorrect."

In a recent statement, the senior vice president & president of Walmart U.S. health & wellness said, "We are not building a national, integrated, low-cost primary care health care platform."

Hmm…guess we'll have to wait and see what Walmart has up their sleeve!
