We (I) hereby certify that we are qualified patients suffering from serious medical conditions and have obtained recommendations or approvals from licensed physicians in the State of California to use medical cannabis (marijuana) to treat our medical conditions. Copies of our recommendations may be attached hereto.
As qualified medical marijuana patients under California law, we choose to associate collectively or cooperatively to cultivate marijuana for medical purposes. All members of our medical marijuana collective will contribute labor, funds, or materials, and all will receive medicine. We form this collective in accordance with California Health and Safety code § 11362.775, which states:
“Qualified patients, persons with valid identification cards, and the designated primary caregivers of qualified patients and persons with identification cards, who associate within the State of California in order collectively or cooperatively to cultivate marijuana for medical purposes, shall not solely on the basis of that fact be subject to state criminal sanctions under Section 11357, 11358, 11359, 11360, 11366, 11366.5, or 11570.”
