Update (7/20/14): The Farmers market for medical marijuana users has been temporarily shut down after an L.A. County Superior Court judge agreed to halt operation of the Boyle Heights cannabis marketplace.
Original Story: Medical marijuana users will have a new way to get the weed they need over Independence Day weekend.
Los Angeles’s first medical marijuana farmer’s market is set to take place July 4-6, allowing patients to purchase cannabis directly from growers. The market hopes to create a better relationship between growers and patients, giving them a new way to safely access the weed they need from trustworthy suppliers.
“This is an opportunity that unfortunately is not seen as much as we would like,” California Heritage Market executive administrator Paizley Bradbury said of the chance for patients and growers to interact. “We’re hoping that the California Heritage Market can bridge this gap and provide a new and affordable experience for those who need safe access they can trust.”
The market also seeks to educate users, with the author of Modern Marijuana Living also slated to be there.
The market will take place from July 4-6, from 10 a.m.-8 p.m., in East Los Angeles at the new West Coast Collective dispensary at 1500 Esperanza Street.
