FINALLY A LITTLE CLARITY:  SACRAMENTO COUNTY finally ready to take applications for cultivation.  Lots of hoops to jump through:  application an applicant needs to be prestine - but up to 1/2 acre can be grown.  We will be processing Sacrmento, San Diego and Los Angeles applications NOW.  Do it right now legally - as each county goes.  Also see us about the counties that are not set up yet and what you can do to run a business.  I will be attendning most city counsel board meetings in the Sacramento to Los Angeles areea during the next months and processing as many applications as private non profit as possiible  We can meet to discuss legal business models and applicaations either in person oro video chat.  Some of the Cities and Counties are taking a position that no businesses can occur until they create an application.  Calaveras county is basically on hold until their May 1 election.  But other counties are charging ahead.  Appellate law helps give protection to businesses in counties that have not set up plans yet.   

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 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.  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.  Imy 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. (fee for consultation of Medical Marijuana Non-Profit/profit set up is $300.00).
