We haven't been doing our best. There I said it. This regulated environment is complicated and being set up by people who are not interested in patient care, they are interested in taxing this. That being said we are 100% committed to you our patients. I know that it might not seem like that right now, but we are. We are members of Cal Growers, National Cannabis Industry Association and sit on the board of directors of the Bay Area Delivery Alliance. These lobbying groups are working with the state actively to change the financial aspects of these new regulations that directly effect medical cannabis consumers. The effects of which can be seen last week in Berkeley cutting the cannabis tax in half.
Prop 64 was a broken piece of legislation from the start, it was rushed to the ballot in front of the MCRSA (Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act) to be on an election ballot because the authors and elected officials saw this as their opportunity to get this passed by the voters of California.
MCRSA was the proposition that the industry had come together as a group to put together that honored the existing infrastructure that has been in place for over 20 years. It was cognizant of the enormous medical cannabis consumer base that needed this MEDICINE. It was thoughtful of the vast amount of businesses across the state that had risked their freedom to provide that medicine.
Prop 64 provided nothing but a way to take a piece of the pie. We failed you, the consumer. Our Industry, our elected officials and now us as a business. But we aren't finished fighting this fight. We are in this together.
If you have comments or concerns you'd like to voice to the management at Marygold Delivery please email firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do my best to return all emails with 24-48 hours, if you include your phone number I will be returning calls throughout the week.

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE RESCINDS COLE MEMO: HERE’S WHAT TO EXPECT
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the Department of Justice’s move to rescind the “Cole Memo” and two additional memos related to marijuana enforcement policy. These memos, issued in 2013 and 2014, have helped to clarify the Department’s response to state-legal cannabis activity.
This is disturbing news for the cannabis industry and the majority of U.S. voters who support legal cannabis. However, the rescinding of this memo does not necessarily mean that any major change in enforcement policy is on the horizon. This has been, and still will be, a matter of prosecutorial discretion.
The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) team in D.C. is working tirelessly to ensure that the administration and the Department of Justice uphold President Trump’s campaign promise to not interfere with state-legal cannabis programs by making sure they understand that regulated cannabis is successfully undercutting the criminal market, while funding important state programs.
At this time, it’s critical the cannabis industry unify to amplify that message so it’s crystal clear. It’s also imperative that Congress take action to align federal legislation with the majority of states, which now allow some form of legal cannabis.
One pressing issue before Congress is Senator Leahy’s appropriations amendment which would prevent the DOJ from using resources to undermine state medical cannabis laws. (The Senate’s version of the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer Amendment in the House.)

Its a little dance we in this industry know all to well., credit card processing is an issue. Its convenient and we all love them. But there is a catch, for us anyway. You see the federal government still classifies our beloved as a Schedule I Controlled Substance having no medical applications. Load of you know what right? Right. We know that's wrong, literally everyone involved knows its wrong but yet financial institutions are bound by rules put there for good reason because...money! We have some power here if we choose to use it, Votes. I know the electoral college and whatever but Representative Mark DeSaulnier (202) 225-2095 (Washington DC Office) is very interested in how his constituents feel about these matters. His office in Walnut Creek is located at 3100 Oak Road Suite 110 Walnut Creek, CA 94597 and can be reached by phone at (925) 933-2660, drop by and tell him you'dlike to see legislation to reclassify brought to the floor and if one shows up, you'd like for him to back it. Democracy!
