what is next for

california? Our state is breaking loose and Southern California is leading the way. Los Angeles and San Diego are now providing certainty where confusion has brought panic to our industry. The State of California is getting ready to back-stop the cities and lo and behold we are going to have a legal cannabis regulatory environment before you know it! We want to provide a brief primer on developments in the cities of Los Angeles and San Diego; then finish up briefly with the actions the state has taken to provide some certainly around 2018.

THE 420 BOOK


Los Angeles

Los Angeles now has a Department of Cannabis Regulation, providing one stop for all your cannabis regulatory needs. There are three things that are clear in terms of these regulations: •There will be no growing or manufacturing in the City of Los Angeles until further notice; we expect this to change but that is presently the law; •Pre-ICO dispensaries (those on the 2013 list for the most part) will continue to have priority for the foreseeable future. This has set off a scurry of multi-million dollar transactions as the maneuvering begins for what is perceived to be a very scarce resource; •Distribution and testing will continue to be lawful activities and there is consideration of on-site consumption. So what does this mean? •For the customer, it may be more difficult to find a variety of strains. Prices

will now be fully regulated. In the coming months make sure your taxes are in line, fees are ready, and you are moving towards some type of tracking system for your product. Applications need to be filled out, legal counsel in place, and operating in a legal green zone. •For the Cultivator, start looking for cities close by that are opening up for cultivation. The new model for you will be through a Distributor. In the coming months get a tracking system in place and start now.

san diego

Store fronts were granted the ability to sell recreationally, in addition to the previously granted medical. When confronted with the option of legalizing just medical testing or legalizing an entire system, the city council chose the latter: legalizing cultivation, manufacturing, testing and retail dispensaries in San Diego.

Under current law, grow operations will not be permitted in the city of Los Angeles.

may also be higher due to transportation costs associated with cultivation halts. But on the plus side, recreation will be available soon and there may be a sweet stoney lounge to frequent at some point. •For the Retailer, most are already using cultivators outside of the city so not much will change in that aspect. In the meantime, distribution and retail sale of marijuana

city council district and specific regulations will determine how the business should operate. The regulations include things such as lighting, security, age restriction, and foot traffic. As for store fronts, a ban was lifted regarding the proximity to one another. Looks like pricing is about to get a lot more competitive in some areas. All in all this is a huge win for San Diego allowing for the expansion of a growing market in the local area. So what does this mean? •For customers, it could mean a variety of outcomes that we will truly have to wait and see. But one thing is for sure, there will be a lot more jobs hitting the local economy. •Delivery services have to work with a storefront in order to operate. For you it could mean extra capital for working under your license. With the ban lifted on proximity to another store, you may have some friendly competition headed your way.

In the city of San Diego, store fronts will be able to sell recreationally, in addition to the previously granted medical marijuana sales.

This will create a fully integrated marijuana network in San Diego, assuring a diversified tax base. Part of this provision is the topic of transportation and sales. Under the new law cultivators will only be able to sell to store fronts and other cultivators, any additional transport will be to testing facilities. Cultivators will be allowed to have two shops per

•Cultivators, the race is on. There will be a very limited amount of cultivating that will be approved. Get with a cannabis driven law firm to help guide you through what is to come. Between finding a location, 24 hour security, lighting, taxes, employees…it’s in your best interest. Licenses will be up for renewal every 5 years.

State of California The 90 day printable license. The state is not ready to lay into action its set laws for the upcoming California cannabis birthday. Instead what will happen is 90 day licenses will be handed out to those that have the following: Local Approval, type of business, a diagram of your company layout, taxes/financial statements, and contact information. Pretty simple. Due to the complexity of the regulations the state is ready to extend the 90 day licenses if necessary. The good news is with January 1st just around the corner the state is open to answering any question you may have. Applications will be available the beginning of December, have your documents ready and don’t lag. With the influx of applications you want to

get in early. Applications will be accepted but not granted before January 1st. Licensing workshops will be held to specify in some grey areas that the state left for the city to interpret. If you do not make a workshop make sure to do your research online or contact a local law firm for guidance. Lastly, recently covered and on the horizon is cannabis insurance. With the Wild West soon coming to an end with that will be the interest of insurance companies. That’s good news for store fronts all around the nation. Any questions or guidance feel free to contact Alexandria Shaw, Compliance officer for MJIC Compliance ashaw@mjic.com Where the grass is ALWAYS GREENER on the other side

MJIC COMPLIANCE PRODUCT & SERVICE OFFERINGS No secret, cannabis in California is a highly regulated industry. From business plans, to licensing, to security arrangements, taxes and fees, to where, how and how much, there is no end to municipal and state regulations. HOWEVER, the good news is that there is an increasingly clear roadmap defining legal cannabis operations. MJIC Compliance has cracked the code, providing dynamic products and services to simplify and assure regulatory compliance. Here is how we do that:

MUNICIPAL LICENSE OPPORTUNITIES Our staff researches, summarizes and circulates daily and weekly “hotsheets” outlining city council activities, immediate license opportunities and then identifies those cities we view as “on deck” to commence licensing. Our customers have grown to rely upon this information to provide a broad overview of the marketplace and its developments.

REAL ESTATE OPPORTUNITIES We also provide immediate real estate identification services within identified or potentially future “green zones” providing our customers with buy and lease opportunities matched with supportive jurisdictions.

ONGOING COMPLIANCE SERVICES AND TECHNOLOGY As our customers consider and deploy the details of their operations, our team of experienced attorneys, accountants and consultants provide regulatory advice and planning, accounting and tax services and compliance technology to operations providing a sort of “good housekeeping seal of approval” providing the critical interface with regulators. When the regulators call for audit (which we are now seeing in the marketplace) we are there with well documented operations and professional level staff to assure all regulatory audit questions are addressed.

FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING AND TAXES We have a staff of cannabis experienced accountants and tax professionals providing financial modeling, accounting, bookkeeping and tax advice/return preparation providing seamless financial services to our regulatory assistance.

Derived from high-grade Marijuana and Santa Yerba., the �Holy Herb�. Using his unique extraction and aging process, Dr. Nalbandyan and his team at Holy Herb have created a high-grade pain relief spray unlike any other.

Get back to life without pain Spray your way to relief

Santa Yerba grows naturally throughout Northern Mexico and Southern California and was used by Native Americans for thousands of years. The herb was used topically to help sooth mosquito bites, rashes, bruises, wounds, sprains, muscle aches, joint pain, eczema and more. They would also brew tea to make a great tasting natural anti-oxidant that helps with fevers and coughs. Cannabis also has a lot of the same medical benefits. These two herbs combined together create a high-octane pain relief spray that delivers fast and sustainable results.

Madz breaks the brand

to get what’s real By: Rob Starr If you take look at and read through the press that’s been written about her, you might think you know Madzilla, aka Madelyn Lance. In fact it would be easy to see how the tats and sexy poses made her a modern pin up for the pot world, today’s version of those curvy WWII WACS that did their part with sultry smiles and perky salutes almost a century ago. But you need to look closer to get the real story. In fact you need to look right at one of the features that prompted the press to give her the “sexy-stoner brand” handle she’s trying to rework. “I did get my neck tattooed,” she said. “That one is for my parents. It’s an hour glass with two hearts connected. Every time I see it, I’m motivated to do everything I need to do.”

Old adage

Right there you know how true the old adage is that you can’t judge a book by its cover. Although of course in this case there’s nothing wrong with appreciating her sassy good looks and savvy charm for a second or two before you dig deeper into what makes this 28 year old phoneme tick. Getting to know this Long Beach based model is about understanding how she’s let the ingredients simmering in the cauldron 30

THE 420 BOOK

of her past rise to the surface to skim them and make something new, how she epitomizes the old adage from Hemmingway that “the world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places.” It’s just that for her, the process started much too early. Her mother was born in Long Beach but Madelyn was born in Oregon. “My parents ended up separating when I was younger,” she says. “They both did heavy drugs like meth, coke and heroin, and my Dad was an alcoholic.”

Left a mark

To make matters worse, her father had a liver problem and passed away when she was only 10 years old. Although she says she doesn’t remember him very well, they have one important date they share in common that’s left a mark on Madzilla. “I was born on his birthday which made it really crazy,” she says. “Every year we share the same birthday.” After her father’s death, young Madelyn was left alone with her mother and that woman’s struggle with drugs. Their situation took them down that never-ending spiral that’s often the earmark of drug and alcohol abuse. continued on page 30

Abandoned houses

The family of two lived in a series of abandoned houses and even cars. At a tender young age when most children are used to playing in playgrounds and enjoying warm meals in the comfort of a caring and nurturing environment, the girl who would become Madzilla was learning to expect different things from the world around her. “We even needed to eat out of dumpsters. My mom taught me how to go dumpster diving,” she says with a slight laugh that reinforces the inner strength she’s needed to survive. “Most of my clothes and shoes were out of the dumpster when I was younger.”

Hollywood script

It would all be a classic Hollywood script if it wasn’t real. However this is a genuine scenario and not one where art imitates life. Eventually, her mother allowed her to go live in another state with some relatives. Her mother told her she’d be back at the end of the summer but it was a trip that would last three years and leave another mark on her personality and the

32

THE 420 BOOK

person she is today. The relatives that she stayed with wouldn’t allow her to talk to her mother on the phone unless they were standing within earshot so Madelyn wouldn’t tell her what was really going on in her new life.

Walking billboard

In a way, she’s a walking billboard for her own history. Take the letter B that’s tattooed on the side of her face as a tribute to her half-brother Brian who’s been incarcerated for years. When she was 13 years old, Madzilla and her mother settled in a trailer park in Arizona. The other residents were mostly crack addicts and not surprisingly they fought constantly in living quarters that were unfit for both. “Me and my mom shared a bedroom. I’d come home from school and there’d be heroin needles on the floor.”

A pair of skulls

Back then she got her first set of tattoos which were a pair of skulls shaped like

cherries. Not surprisingly, the young girl set out on a road that might have led to her eventual ruin. At 14, she moved out to hang around with some friends who were headed down the same path. She lived in group homes, crashed where she could and was often homeless during the period. It was a recipe for a wasted life and certain disaster. However, Madelyn had another set of genes in her makeup that were to set her on a different path and maybe save her life. She explains what prompted this life changing pivot. “At one point my mom and I were living with my grandmother. I’m named after my grandma and she is one of the big reasons that I became a model.” Vintage pinup When she describes that relative as “a super pretty vintage pinup looking lady” who modeled back in the day, you can hear her voice change and become hopeful and buoyant. There were modeling pictures around the space all three shared that motivated Madelyn from a young age to look beyond


her present circumstances to the possibility of a better future. Still, there were the constant reminders of her life as it was and even one episode with a sick aunt, she thought of after she found the benefits of marijuana.

Bedridden in the trailer

“My aunt had multiple sclerosis at the time. She was bedridden in the trailer while we were living in Arizona. She was at the stage where all her limbs were contracted and she had huge bedsores,” this woman friends nicknamed Madzilla says. “She couldn’t talk anymore and it got really bad. If I’d known about CBD back then, I definitely would’ve given it to her.” Even though her grandmother was a positive influence, Madelyn’s life had a lot stacked up in the negative ledger. After a long bumpy relationship, she finally found a common ground with her mother when she was 20 years old. At a time when things seemed to be smoothing over, her mother passed away from a methadone overdose. It was during the early stages of her daughter’s modeling career. “I had a big photo shoot in a warehouse and my brother called me from prison and told me ‘Mom died,’” she says admitting the subject is one she’s only shared in a small circle and that she’s only become comfortable talking about it recently. Madelyn had visited her mother two weeks before. At 20, both her parents were dead and her brother was locked away. The pressure and shock of dealing with life without any family by her side forced her to make some hard decisions about what she’d need to do to survive.

Left alone

For the first time in her life, she was left alone to make decisions for herself, by herself. The realization took a toll. “I started freaking out because I didn’t know what I was going to do with my life,” she says. “I started stripping a couple weeks after that happened because literally I had no money and I was scared and felt so alone.” After a few years, she started to make a name for herself and realized that dancing

was going to give her the leverage to further her modeling career and do other things she wanted to in life.

Credits weed

She gave it up three years ago to model more. Madelyn credits weed with helping her get through all the rough patches and curves that life has thrown her. “I did experiment with a few other things but at the end of the day, weed is what calms me down and helps me to stay creative. When I smoke, I feel like everything I do is for my mom and dad.” She pauses for a second to collect her thoughts before continuing. “If I didn’t have weed, I probably wouldn’t even be sane right now. It really is a medicine.”

Serious medical conditions

She says that one of the things she likes best about marijuana is the way it brings people together and that it’s the better route to take for dealing with things like pain, depression and serious medical conditions than some other options. When all is said and done she takes a low-key approach that puts using her fame to help other people at a premium. “Last year we did a big charity event for CBD. A friend of mine suffers from a rare medical condition and uses it. I just smoke weed and do what I do and other people call me an activist.”

Do the right thing

This compassionate stoner the LA Weekly called “the World’s Most Famous Pothead Hip-Hop Tattooed Model,” wants to do the right thing with her success. However, she knows that appearing in Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa’s “French Inhale” video and having a large Instagram following is equal parts success and luck. Consider this part of her story that reads like this script from a movie. “I was out at the clubs one night. At that time I had just done some modeling.”

Snoop Dogg

She goes on to say how a stranger came up to ask her what she did for a living. When she told him she was a model, he replied

that he worked with Snoop Dogg and asked her if she wanted to be in a video. Her background in videos is impressive and not to be denied—even if she’s trying to break away from the image it’s given her and start anew. Still, she’s the first to admit being in Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa’s “French Inhale” video does open some doors. She’d never done any video work before that and wasn’t sure about it, so she chose a characteristic move to help her decide if she wanted to work with the relative stranger that night at the club. “I finally said, “You know what? Let’s go rock, paper scissors. If you win, I’ll give you my contact info but make sure it’s for something important.” The rest, as they say, is history.

New direction

Now that that her career has taken off, Madelyn “Madzilla” Lance is characteristically driving it in a new direction because if you know her and her story you know she’ s always done things on her own, her own way. So what will the new incarnation of Madzilla be? More videos with weed icons and brazen photo shoots that combine the sensual and sassy? Possibly, but it’s clear to see that someone whose been through what she has knows the value of changing, adapting and doing what’s right. “Out with the old and in with the new,” she says. “At the end of the day, I’m a spiritual person and I want to put that out with a certain vibe through my work.” In the end, her goals are simple and her aim is still true. “I want to be able to work with the right brand and make it stand out,” she says. “Like I’ve said before, if I had known about the real medical and other benefits of CBD and marijuana years ago, I could have helped a lot of other people before now.” Orange Background photos: Photography: Tiffany Jewels @TiffanyJewels | #TiJewelsPhotography  Makeup: Nisie Palacio  @Baddbelizean | #BadGyalCertified

There are lifestyle companies appealing to a broad swath of customers and Cannasuer is one of them. They carry top notch products geared to both the medicinal and recreational user. The company has recently collaborated with Apollo’s Fire Rocks to create solvent-less, pesticide free high end products.

Exotic Formulas Their flagship Terpy sticks were designed for people with throat and lung problems because of their smooth hit. A Terpy stick is a disposable glass pipe filled with Private Reserve Flower, Caviar Hash and Apollo’s Nug Run Crumble. This product is great for people with stress and anxiety or for any concentrate connoisseur. They hit super smooth but pack a heavy punch. Therefore, the Terpy stick is an ideal choice for any level of consumer.

Caviar Hash and Private Reserve Flower Products Cannasuer appeals to the namesake—people who like products that use top shelf and private reserve products. This all natural cannabis pre-roll is an exotic hand rolled blunt that has no competition. The “super super super smooth” formula they use includes an organic leaf, packed with nugs and top of the line crumble. Too many patients nowadays have been accustomed to trim or filler in their joints – but Cannasuer Co uses All Killer No Filler.

A Higher Industry Standard Cannasuer has some future plans that all true Cannasuer’s should be paying attention to. They will be changing the game and holding the industry to a higher standard. 38

Pot has gone

to the dogs By Rob Starr

Dogs are man’s best friend and so is recreational/medicinal pot. So, it shouldn’t really be a surprise that some smart entrepreneur has put the two together to sell dogs to guard legal grows operations. However, if you peak behind the curtain to get the full picture of the training, history and dedication that goes into Taylor Made Working Dogs, you’ll see there’s great story too.

Top Quality Dog Trainer

Like the name implies, Taylor Made Working Dogs is a top quality dog trainer in the San Diego area. They have several outstanding training courses to choose from and have made their name as a third-generation breeder of working German shepherd dogs. Kris Taylor is the owner and head trainer. Because he’s a smart businessman, he saw a crossroad where his family business met the needs of the flowering cannabis industry. “There’s a lot of legal growers and things like dispensaries here,” he said. “That being said, just because marijuana is legal, that doesn’t mean the industry isn’t surrounded by a lot of shady individuals.”

Inside the Law

Taylor is quick to point out he’s not talking about the folks who grow pot and stay inside the law. “I’m talking about the people that might want to profit from them,” he says telling the story of a grower friend who lost his 2nd amendment rights when he became a legal pot seller. The situation quickly became a security issue. Taylor explains. “The issue was this guy had been robbed several times on his farm.” Taylor had already sold the family a dog for personal protection. That’s when he saw another opportunity to put another one of his highly trained animals to work. “He hasn’t had a problem since,” Taylor says. 46

THE 420 BOOK


Reefer Ranchers

His company fits the need for growers who live far enough away from urban centers police response times can be hours. In some cases, these reefer ranchers even need to walk out for miles just to get a cell signal when something goes wrong. Perhaps best of all, Taylor Made Working Dogs come from a long line of family dedicated to the breed that stretches back across the ocean. Although he got his first German Shepard in 1987 and became a helper at the San Diego Schutzhund Club in 2003, the family relationship started in the homeland of the breed.

Breed Standard

“My mom’s from Germany and there’s a very common sport there called Schutzhund,” he says. Basically, it’s a test of the dog’s ability to protect and be

more useful companions to people. It’s the original breed standard. The result is a small group of breeders that bring out the best in the working side of the dog’s temperament. One of the by products of this Schutzhund classification and training are dogs that are bred for protection work. Taylor Made Working Dogs breeds specifically for that. They are also good companions in the home and peaceful and controlled in a variety of circumstances too. “Confidence, ability and nerve are just as important as a drive to work,” he says. In the end, there’s a real case for this kind of four legged protection over the kind that comes with a trigger when you’re trying to protect your pot operation and Kris Taylor sums it up best. “A dog is always out there. Always searching and looking. If they’re functional enough to be used in combat, they can keep any criminals off your property.”

Krystal Küre At first GlANCE,

it may be easy to overlook the subtle, yet fundamental meaning and conceptual thought that went into the brand’s name Krystal Kure. As the name implies- Krystal Kure was initially developed to take full advantage of all the medicinal facets associated with medical grade cannabis. In a recent interview with Raymond the CEO of Krystal Kure, we were given exclusive, personal insight to the company’s story that is an excellent portrayal of “Tragedy and Triumph.” This led to the research and development of one of the most potent, if not THE most potent vape/dab oil concentrate filtering processes available in the market today. “In November of 2016 my fiancé and I were in a very bad car accident,” he says, “We were both transported to the hospital in ambulances and all I could think about was her the whole time. When we arrived at the hospital, I learned from the doctor that she had sustained some type of neck injuries and that immediately caused me great concern for her safety and her well-being,” he adds. “They put her through the MRI machine and when the doctor came back, he said that he noticed something abnormal while analyzing her images.” He continues to add, “They found what they believed to be a Nodule and that they would need to conduct further testing.” Shortly after the nodule was discovered, biopsy complete and Raymond stated, “my whole life changed from that moment on. I cried… I cried more than I ever have as a man.” The Krystal Kure executive described himself as feeling ‘powerless’ and being unable to rationalize why something like this was happening so suddenly. The soon to be married couple then realized that they were confusing warning signs with less critical ailments. Early detection is a key component in preventing and effectively treating most types of cancers. As Raymond is discussing possible treatment options with said fiancé he states, “she told me she didn’t want any poisons in her body at all,” referring to the various treatment options. That meant that Raymond and his company were going to have to really get into gear developing a product that they would be able to standby as a healer - a “cure” of sorts. The process of refinement consists of a patent-pending filtering process that was designed and intended to produce the maximum amount of CBD extraction possible. “My fiancé began to gain her weight back and she began to return to her normal self. It was incredible.” Now here we are today; following the same process for making the highest quality THC available to the market. A product that takes countless hours of processing and refining to complete. Our concentrates are made from the highest-grade flowers and buds that one can get their hands on. We use the top strains that our patients love and we create a variety of different categories of cartridges. From our Berner Cookie hybrids to our Louis XIII Indica’s, the quality remains the best in the market. All Krystal Kure oils are 100% organic and then CO2 blasted. We don’t use solvents, PG, VEG or MCT oils like a lot of companies and our oil goes through the process of distillation which gives it the most clear and potent look and taste. We take pride in providing our patients with the cleanest concentrates, it has become our passion and our team of experts are doing their best to maintain that level of quality and consistency!
