If you are an attorney who is interested in providing legal services to businesses involved in the Arizona medical marijuana dispensary you may have noticed that there are a lot of legal documents needed by the industry. Although I have created over 500 legal forms in the last thirty years of practicing Arizona business law, I do not have the time to customize my legal forms to meet all of the unique needs of legal documents to be used by businesses and people in the marijuana industry. Given the number of legal documents needed by the industry, I doubt there are many, if any, lawyers in Arizona who are willing to create each of the legal documents needed by the industry.
My solution to this problem is to put together a group of Arizona business lawyers who will each prepare one or two or three of the documents. The goal is for the group to prepare all of the legal documents and the authors of each document will grant a license to all the other members of the co-op to use the documents for their clients. If you are interested in joining the co-op, send me a message and tell me your first, second and third choice for the specific legal document(s) you want to prepare. For a list of the legal documents we need for our dispensary clients, see “What Legal Contracts Does My Medical Marijuana Dispensary Need?“ If you think I should add anything to the contracts and documents list, send me a message.
All contracts and documents must be original work of the author. Each author will have to sign an agreement in which the author represents and warrants that he or she will all the copyrights to the work and grant members of the co-op a nonexclusive license to use the work with the co-op member’s clients.
P.S. Here are some documents in addition to those listed in the above-referenced article that co-op members should also prepare:
A. Business plan “demonstrating the on-going viability of the dispensary as a non-profit organization.” DHS rules R 9-17-302.B.13.
B. Policies and procedures for inventory control. DHS rules R 9-17-302.B.4.a.
C. Policies and procedures for qualifying patient recordkeeping. DHS rules R 9-17-302.B.4.b.
D. Policies and procedures for security. DHS rules R 9-17-302.B.4.c.
E. Policies and procedures for patient education and support. DHS rules R 9-17-302.B.4.d.
