As such, we ask for your cooperation to keep our organization in good standing and repute. In order to become a member of MHC, you must be at least 21 years old, and provide us with a copy of your valid California Driver License or valid California ID.

Until you are a member of our collective, please do not ask for any information other than operating hours over the phone. We remind our members that use of medicinal cannabis in the state of California is subject to restrictions and limitations, including that consuming cannabis while driving may result in charges of driving under the influence. It is unlawful to operate heavy machinery, or perform certain other jobs while using cannabis. Medicinal cannabis is currently designated for use only within your private residence. You may not sell or redistribute your medicine to others. Please place your medicine out of sight and out of reach of children. Please show respect and courtesy towards all staff, collective members, and your neighbors.
Terms of Membership
As a Member of MHC, I agree to this Patient Code of Conduct & Membership Agreement, including to changes to it as may from time to time be necessary for the benefit of the collective. I understand that violations of these rules will result in immediate termination of my privileges within the collective.
I confirm that I am legally able to use, possess, and cultivate cannabis for medical purposes. I understand that I am allowed to do so through safe and affordable access such as the type provided by MHC, and therefore, designate MHC as my care provider for this purpose. In doing so, I agree to sign and follow all MHC’s rules and regulations.
I hereby declare that a licensed medical doctor recommended and approved my use of medical cannabis. I have been diagnosed with chronic pain, anxiety, or any other serious illness for which cannabis provides relief. I authorize MHC to create and/or assign agency rights in its own name for the purpose of growing or obtaining medical cannabis flower, extracts, edibles, and other cannabis products for my benefit and on my behalf. I agree to pay all personal out-of-pocket expenses and reasonable compensation for MHC’s member services. My contributions to MHC are solely for its continued operations, as compensation for prescribed medical cannabis products. These contributions are used by MHC to ensure the continued operation of MHC and do not constitute, in any way, a commercial promotion or sale of any item.
I am a California resident and my personal medical cannabis will not be taken out of the State of California. I also agree that my medical cannabis shall not be shared, sold, bartered, traded, exchanged, or delivered in any other means to any other person. I designate MHC and its representatives as my agents for the limited purpose of assisting me in obtaining my legally prescribed medical cannabis. I understand that this means MHC will be required to purchase, possess, transport and distribute my medication to me as prescribed by my physician and I grant them the limited authority to do so. I further authorize MHC to share their caregiver status of my person in order to enter into contracts to obtain or allow the growth or preparation of medical cannabis flower, concentrates, and other cannabis products for my benefit.
As a member, I understand that MHC has other members and hereby authorize MHC to jointly possess the medical cannabis as described in this agreement, jointly with other MHC members under similar membership agreements. I agree to provide MHC with all changes in my contact information, diagnosis, or primary physician immediately if/when they occur. I understand that MHC has not made any effort to encourage me to produce or use any substances for my medical condition. I confirm and certify that I have discussed my medical cannabis use with my recommending physician, and that my use of medical cannabis is in conformity with my physician’s recommendation. I warrant and represent that my membership in MHC is for the purpose of lawfully obtaining my medical cannabis in conformity with my physician’s recommendation.
I understand that MHC was organized to provide medical cannabis. I further understand that circumstances may require defense of authorization in a court of law and I agree to participate in such defense to the extent necessary and practicable. I agree that I am not a member of law enforcement and further agree not divert any medicine for the purpose of any criminal investigations. I understand that MHC reserves the right to refuse service(s) to members. I affirm that I am over twenty one (21) years of age, and that I have a medical condition(s) that is benefitted by the medical usage of cannabis as confirmed by my medical physician in the form of a recommendation.
I understand that my contributions to MHC and the products or services I may acquire from MHC, are used to ensure the continuing operation of MHC and that such products and services do not constitute commercial promotion or a for-profit business. I agree that any products acquired are for my own personal use and not for resale.
I authorize MHC to acknowledge the fact of my membership, if required, for the preservation of my medical rights under the California Compassionate Use Act of 1996. I authorize MHC to add my email address onto the main MHC mailing list, knowing that I can easily remove myself at any time with the unsubscribe option in any of the marketing emails received. I acknowledge that my email will be added to the mailing list as soon as I register as a member and/or place my first order. I understand that medical cannabis, while being a well-known effective therapeutic agent, is still federally illegal in this country.
I do now release, acquit, and forever discharge MHC and its members, owners and staff, from all actions, claims, demands, or damages accruing to me from any known or unknown injury, loss, or damage sustained by or to me. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless MHC from any injuries or damages resulting from use or misuse of medical cannabis or any other product or service obtained from MHC.
By clicking the “Agree” button or checkbox in the MHC registration process, I confirm that I have read, understood, and agree to all terms of the MHC Patient Code of Conduct & Membership Agreement. I accept all the statements listed in this agreement and acknowledge that to be a verified member of MHC I will also need to sign a physical copy of this code of conduct & membership agreement.
