For the moment, Zoots are only available in Washington due to strict rules regarding exporting product to other states. They hope to one day be able to supply their product throughout the country.
But how do the three 50-somethings manage the crippling guilt over their product corrupting the minds of innocent Washingtonians?
They deal with it very logically. The way the Devlins see it, criminalization of marijuana doesn't stop people who want to use it. They're filling the demand with a high-quality solution that doesn't require smoking, and whose dose is meticulously measured, ensuring that anyone who reads the packaging knows the exact potency.
Doesn't sound like these guys broke bad at all.
