Baker, a Denver software company targeting marijuana dispensaries, said it's "secured a $1.6 million extension to its August 2016 seed round, bringing the company's total raised capital to $3.5 million, making it one of the single most VC-backed companies in the marijuana space."

Baker said its funding was led by Poseidon Asset Management, and it will use the money to fund its "continued and explosive growth."
