Message from our Founder

In September 2002, my father, a longtime grower was arrested for conspiracy to cultivate Cannabis. He was sentenced to 3 years in federal prison and was released from federal custody in October of 2005. He instilled in me the fundamentals of work, compassion, and creativeness. Though my father is no longer with us he would be amazed to see the progress of the industry as a whole.

After moving to California in 2008 and becoming a caregiver for several patients, it became apparent we needed to get organized. After consulting with medical marijuana attorneys and being disappointed with their high price tag, fees, and poor customer service we discovered there were a lot of opportunities for collectives to operate as a legitimate business, So we began the process of organizing a collective, doing it ourselves. Rest assured, I have been in your shoes. We organized our first collective in 2009. After organizing several collectives for friends and colleagues, referrals started to roll in. In the last 7 years our company has served over 800 clients in California! We look forward to many more years of providing advice and a helping hand to legal cannabis providers, patients and consumers.

Every day in California thousands of ordinary and extraordinary people use cannabis to improve the quality of their life. After seeing first hand the healing effects of cannabis, I truly believe it is a crime to keep this medicine away from people who could benefit from it’s healing properties. Therefore, it is up to the people to bring change to government, new ideas, and new practices. You have a right as a medical marijuana patient to grow, possess, and transport Medical Marijuana for yourself and the members of your collective. Exercise your rights and protect the members of your collective by organizing your business in compliance with California law.
