Marijuana Farmers Market Held in Phoenix

 by lucy

Yesterday, a medical marijuana farmers market was held in Phoenix, Arizona, where a medical marijuana program is in place but collectives are not yet legally in operation.

The farmers market was held so that Arizona cardholders could have a new way to access their medicine.  Marijuana plants, edibles, and joints were sold from booths to card holders.

One patient said, “Gatherings like this are so important for people who don’t know where to get their medicine.  It allows them to say, ‘oh wow, I can do that?  I must have heard that 100 times today.”

The farmers market was held indoors, and patients were required to show their patient identification cards in order to enter and purchase medicine.

All patients and caregivers could set up a booth to share their medicine and products with other patients.  The goal of the market was to show patients the different types of medicine available and help caregivers connect with new patients in their area.

Arizona voters approved the state’s medical marijuana program in November 2010, but business licenses were only awarded to dispensaries a few weeks ago.

The event was organized by WeGrow, a medical marijuana consulting group.

    We really need these in Cali. I'd like to see the Feds try and shut down patient to patient donation. These farmer markets help everyone, more money for farmer, less paid for patient. No middle man money hungry club.
