Medical Marijuana Farmer’s Market Fights to Stay in Business

Earlier this summer, California held the first-ever medical marijuana farmer’s market on the east side of Los Angeles. Shortly after, the city moved to ban such a market from ever being held again.


The California Heritage Market opened in Boyle Heights this past July 4 through 6 to much fanfare. The focus was on patient education and safety, and it was the first such market where medical marijuana patients could meet with growers face to face and check out a large variety of dispensaries and product. The market offered patients the chance to shop the entire city’s worth of marijuana in one day, which is important if you have a condition that is only helped by one or two strains of marijuana.


Different strains of marijuana have different contents of THC and CBD. THC is the cannabinoid in marijuana that makes you high, and CBD is the cannabinoid that provides relief from many conditions that cause physical pain in sufferers. Over time, you can become desensitized to a particular strain with continued use, so for patients who have rare conditions, it can be costly and time-consuming to find strains that work for their condition, are affordable, and available to them locally.


L.A. city officials requested a temporary restraining order for the market, saying it violated local dispensary laws.  Until the order is lifted, the market’s organizers cannot advertise or set up booths. Patients and dispensaries hope the matter can be resolved soon so that patients can get access to growers once more.
