Marijuana farmers market proposed for Boulder

A Denver-based marijuana entrepreneur wants to start a specialized farmers market for pot in Boulder, but the proposal could face significant legal and political hurdles.

Justin Hartfield, CEO of weedmaps.com and managing partner of Ghost Group, a marijuana venture capital group, sees the potential for a new venture offering vendors better access to consumers and consumers a higher level of choice.

He said the Boulder Farmers' Market is a model for similar institutions around the country, and an organic cannabis farmers market would build on that tradition.

"It would be the perfect place to have a proposal go through," he said.

Right now, Hartfield said he's trying to get a sense of how Boulder politicians and planning officials would view such a proposal.
