Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.

Is this in California or another state? Is the use of marijuana legal in your state?

Medical marijuana legal on state level now...but can become non profit for medical marijuana collective by becoming mutual benefit Corp (non profit). Was told I need to answer that question's #5 on The form " The specific purpose of this corporation is to....."

are you there???
Expert:  Richard - Bizlaw replied 2 days ago.

I stepped away for a little while. The key is that your purpose must be lawful under CA law. Let me do a little research and I will get back to you shortly.

There are going to be 17 different license categories under the new law. With one exception, you are only allowed to be in two licensed categories. I have attached a link that explains the different categories. Your description of your purpose should make clear which of the one or two categories into which you will fall. I would specifically reference the license type that you plan to engage in. At this time the state is not ready to start issuing licenses but this is the standard that will be applied. Below is the link
