Cannabis Farmers Market Opens In Seattle

The idea behind the market is primarily to give patients living in outlying areas a direct connection with suppliers who run their businesses in larger cities.

In Seattle, residents were introduced to a fragrant shopping experience as they surveyed wares at the newly launched monthly Cannabis Farmers Market. With names like “Black Rhino,” “Pineapple Express” and “Dark Vader,” medical marijuana patients were able to select their cannabis as easily as finding ripened heirloom tomatoes. Shoppers were required to provide identification and a doctor’s authorization to buy marijuana. The idea behind the market is primarily to give patients living in outlying areas a direct connection with suppliers who run their businesses in larger cities. Jeremy Miller, the organizer and market founder explained how it was all about safe access to medicinal marijuana:

“Patients need to have choices. They need to have the ability to have access to medical marijuana like the law allows them and there’s a lot of people out there who have co-ops and patients may not feel comfortable going into the co-ops. This allows them a great place to network.”

The Cannabis Farmers Market began in Tacoma last October, and will continue in both cities monthly. There was no police presence with Seattle police spokesman, Sean Whitcomb saying: “It’s not a big deal. Our priorities are a reflection of community priorities.”
