According to a Facebook post by Dabstar’s, the police and fire department visits appear to have led to the city of Tacoma pulling the landlord’s permit to rent the building to the operators of the medical marijuana market, Jeremy Miller and Kitty Greatbanks.
Farmer’s Market tenants were given just one hour to remove their property and vacate the building before being locked out onto the street, according to initial reports.
“We have been looking for a new location and think we have already secured a new location,” Jeremy Miller responded Friday afternoon on Facebook.
While the shutdown of any safe access for medical marijuana patients — and the dedicated vendors who grow and process the medicine — is very unfortunate, some anonymous sources within the medical marijuana community found the situation ironic.
At least one other local medical marijuana farmer’s market was actually reported to fire authorities by Miller himself, as a way of nipping competition “in the bud,” so to speak, alleged one well-placed source which Toke Signals was unable to immediately verify.
