Medical Marijuana Farmers Market Opens in Seattle

A new medical marijuana farmers market opened in Seattle on Sunday.

Vendors sold everything from cannabis candy to lotions and creams to dried buds.

But the market was also the stage for a “battle” over marijuana rights.

“It’s so important for everybody that actually values medical cannabis to defend their medical cannabis rights,” Director of the World Famous Cannabis Farmers Market Jeremy Miller said.

He said he and market co-founder Kristin Miller are ready for a fight.

State and local leaders are hashing out the details on recreational pot regulations, which include the number of stores allowed and added costs. Miller is afraid those leaders will do the same to medical marijuana next.

“You’re worried about things like taxes,” KIRO 7 said.

“Yeah,” he said, “it’s not just me– it’s patients.”
