    Answered . First there is not such thing as a cultivators license. Well, I take that back, the FDA issued some licenses last year to the most powerful and rich pharmaceutical companies to grow marijuana. But that is for a different forum.

    Anyway. Interesting that you ask a question about a friend and then you say "...if WE have security..." Okay - I think your spirit is great, but this scenario is not going to protect you federally or within California.

    I have lots of experience with medical marijuana and I say to you “Danger, Will Robinson!” (google this phrase if you are not familiar young man)

    The above information does not establish an attorney client relationship nor is it meant to provide legal advice.

    Answered . Quite frankly, don't walk away from this one, run. To walk a fine line, you need to stay within the rigid rules established in local ordinances. It is just not a desirable spot to be in. If you comply with state and local requirements, it is most difficult and they seem to be constantly busting these operations. Nevertheless, you are always at risk of the Feds taking an interest in your operation. If the Feds get interested, there will be no applicable exception to the rule.

    I hope this is helpful.

    Answered . You don't contact Avvo for legal advice, just for information. This is to inform you that marijuana is still a controlled substance. Even if it is legal under state law for medical use and the state and local law enforcement look the other way (and I am not advising you that they will) the Feds can bust you. A big pot party for medical marijuana users doesn't seem like medical use to me, by the way.

    Any opinions stated in response to Avvo questions are based upon the facts stated in the question. Responses to... more
