Biography

The new fees are going to put alot of small businesses out of business.  The medicinal law should still help many non profits.  I represent many small businesses and over the last few years it looked felt like having daily think tanks - meeting clients from all over the industry.  There needs to be a great deal of advocacy in the area to fit with the intent of the law and to change what now is a  spider web of regulation.  There are familiies in rural communities who have traditionally used this plant medicinally and now could inncrease their very limited income - but not if  everyone down the line has to get a large piece of the pie. 

Delivery only fees in Sacramento will be 10k.  They are storefronts where allegedly the product is stored, processed and a public attractive (nuisance) theft.  

Small businesses should form coops - or some other corporate set up to sustain the fees.  Hopefully the medicinal side will rise up and fight for an easier and more reasonable system.

 I have been representing clients in the creation of collectives, delivery, cultivation and extraction under the CUA.   My background in private non profits, legislative work and criminal defense provides a full spectrum of legal expertise. I have been successful in criminal (marijuana cultivation; possessionn for sale)  and civil trials (most recently a 46 million wrongful foreclosure against bank of america)   I am a strong advocate for change to how the legal system deals with this very personal issue.  Some if not many counties will continue to prosecute people for illegal grows and criminal charges and take large amounts of money from business owners. However, the taking of property for failure to follow the law (city/county/state) is forefront in making people jump through all the hoops.

In the last several years I have assisted people in creating private non profit corporations; collectives and a myriad of business models.  I work directly with them to develop their vision of their business.  My background orignially was in lobbying/city/county governement codes; assisting in the proper functioning of Non-profit corporations. I have been able to help clients maneuver through the process and layers of law successfully.  I have a thorough understanding of the state law, legislatively created law and the new recreational law.  My intention is to advocate for an industry that is clean, uses alternate and creative power and water and is an asset to a city.  I have enjoyed working with clients to create successful work in this industry. In addition the new law allows for major changes to prior marijuana convictions. If you would like more information on corporate set up and  expungement of these cases, . Please contact my office to schedule a Consultation.
