420 College classes on how to start a medical marijuana business

legal medical marijuana

DAY 1:

Medical Cannabis Business Entities

Focus is on how and why you need to start up collective PROPERLY and LEGALLY, under the state programs in your area!

Medical marijuana, co-ops, collectives, clubs and delivery services are SHUT DOWN every day because the groups operating them are doing business contrary to law.
Under current law, medical marijuana collectives and their members must follow specific guidelines for transacting between members – and that behavior clearly does NOT allow, donations, “commerce” or transactions between any one but the members of a collective.
The use of the word DISPENSARY or dispensaries, when speaking of medical marijuana, is also mis-used. Collectives and co-operatives are not operated by licensed “dispensers” (in other words, a pharmacist licensed by the State of California – and licensed pharmacists are NOT allowed, under state laws, to dispense marijuana, for any reason, other than in the form of Marinol(R)).
With THAT said – why do we teach YOU, as a member, how to OPERATE a legal collective instead of saying YOU can Own and Operate a Commercial Marijuana Dispensary? Because OWNING AND OPERATING A FOR-PROFIT, COMMERCIAL MARIJUANA BUSINESS, Dealing with “VENDORS” and Marketing “incentives” to the public to entice them into the club IS ILLEGAL UNDER STATE AND FEDERAL LAWS!
So – You want to learn how to operate a collective, club or delivery – legally – come and learn from folks that know how and have YOUR best interests, at heart.
420 College’s primary objective is to – first and foremost – provide the facts of the law – period.
