Dear Supporter,

With new regulations in the offing we have finally come down to the wire. We must finally acquire the City and the County of Santa Cruz to provide us the licensing that will legitimize our appeal to the State of California for state qualification. As you can imagine it is a great deal of red tape. But most importantly, Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana (WAMM) has been the forerunner in the process to make cannabis legal, instrumental in Proposition 215 and SB420, more than two decades ago.

We look forward to continuing WAMM’s nationally recognized service to our community. With the coming of new California state regulations our present location must be licensed. We trust that with community support we’ll be able to maintain our leadership in providing exemplary patient services. But we need your help.

We hope that you will support our continued presence on the Westside and at the Viking Hall where we have resided for 16 and 19 years respectively. If you don’t know some of our long history, allow me tell you a little bit about our work. WAMM is a not-for-profit patient service organization, not a cannabis dispensary. We are the longest running medical cannabis collective in the nation, helping those who legally use it as part of their healing process, and even as they face end of life. What distinguishes WAMM is that we provide low cost, donation based cannabis phytotherapies as an adjunct and at no cost to financially compromised members. This is one of several reasons that Federal Court Judge Jeremy Fogel described WAMM as “the gold standard of the medical marijuana movement.” From the day of our inception, through challenge and triumph, we have never lost sight of our purpose, to serve.

Please see our letter of support waiting for your or feel free to write your own in support of our services both to the community at large, to financially the compromised, seriously ill members of our community and to those who are facing death.

Your support means everything. After 25 years in the community, we are still without a license from the City or the County. If WAMM has helped you personally, tell your story.

Nothing can be more powerful. Thank you for taking the time to support WAMM, the longest continually running Medial Cannabis Collective in the nation.
