Have Your Say About Medical Cannabis in Marin!

Dear Lotus Family,
I am personally reaching out because  I need your support. Marin County is finally licensing a few dispensary locations (four or less!). Last year, I teamed up with cannabis connoisseur, Aaron Godbout, to apply for a legal permit and address.  If approved, we plan to open  Craftcanna Health Center, a Medical Cannabis Dispensary in Marshall. 
The competition for permits is fierce, and the stakes are high.  Our application will be heard at a Public Meeting on February 7th . At that meeting, the Marin Commissioners  will ask for comments and thoughts about the applicants. We need numbers here, and we need your good word!  We need supporters to be present who can speak to their experiences with us. 
Meeting Details:
The Public Hearing with the County Commissioners will take place at:
Tuesday, February 7th at 6:00 p.m. 
Lagunitas School Multi-Purpose Room
1 Lagunitas School Road
San Geronimo
About Craftcanna Health Center:
Our location in Marshall can serve the local population without adversely impacting residents, schools, or dense commercial areas.  
Unlike traditional dispensaries, we plan to focus on alternative methods to safely and discreetly support our patients, including:
·       Pre-scheduled and on-demand home delivery 
·      Store pick-up by appointment with the option to review menu at length with manager
Our delivery will be available seven days a week across Marin. By reducing the onsite visits of existing patients, Craftcanna will be better able to counsel first-time patients or those with unique needs.  
Delivery and restricted hours will result in a low traffic impact on the community. We will not exceed our needs for parking along the south side of the building. To the extent patients visit, we will showcase our great organic medical strains.
We will be a medical cannabis dispensary only and oppose recreational retail in Marin.    
We are committed to restoring the Marshall Tavern to its former glory. We will reinvest proceeds directly into the restoration. We intend to hire locals and, to the extent we can, we would like to provide affordable housing for local families. 
We are both Marin residents, 100% of the team, we have no other franchises or stores elsewhere, we will be headquartered in Marin.  If you are not happy with what is going on, you know where to find my father! 
Finally, we have extensive experience. Aaron has been cultivating and distributing cannabis for over 20 years. He has been named in the High Times publication as a successful cultivator and innovator in the industry. I have been working in the Lotus family restaurant business since I was aged 7 and I will bring the Sroa commitments to excellent customer service,  using only organic and best ingredients , as well as giving back to our beloved community.  
Thank you in advance for your support!
Please reach out to me at  jyotisroalotus@gmail.com if you have any questions, concerns, want to confirm attendance, or would like to be involved more in helping our dispensary effort in Marin.  
We need your help.  Please turnout!
