This collective, in Olympia, Washington, is a real innovator among medical marijuana access points

Washington’s Sonshine Organics Also Features A Marijuana Farmer’s Market Twice A Month

A medical marijuana access point in Olympia, Washington, has taken convenience to the next level, opening a drive-through window for patients.

Having visited about 70 collectives now in my capacity as “Toke Signals” marijuana/dispensaries reviewer for the Seattle Weekly, the drive-through window at Sonshine Organics is a feature I’ve never seen before. To my knowledge, this is the first one in the Pacific Northwest.
According to Sonshine’s Sarena Haskins, the drive-through window is open on Fridays and Saturdays for the convenience of patients. “For example, busy mothers who don’t want to leave their kids in the car,” she told me.

Around 600 people attended the inaugural Seattle Cannabis Farmer’s Market, according to organizer Jeremy Miller.

The very first Seattle Cannabis Farmer’s Market was held with the blessing of the surrounding community. It was encouraging to see our law enforcement’s attitude reflecting that of the people. The Farmer’s Market provides a safe place for patients to have regular access to a variety of medicine and providers.
For now, at least, the Market is hosted in the centrally located Little Red Bistro’s ‘Moroccan Room’ near Dexter and Denny.
I topped off my morning toke of “Jesus” with a coffee from Uptown Espresso, where I took preliminary notes. Once the mood struck I wandered down to the site of the Farmer’s Market. Patients enter through the front of the restaurant, passing the bar and heading through the back door. The high-ceilinged Moroccan Room housed a good deal of vendors, and a sea of patients.
I found the market boasted a comprehensive cross-section of the medical cannabis community in Washington State. Everyone from single growers, to delivery services, to full brick-and-mortar operations were present.
