We need to be very clear in defining the differences in the visitors to our website and social media.
Guests – are anyone that chooses to visit our site, engage with our content, and hopefully use it to advance their business. We welcome guests as they are the broad industry community.
Registered Users – have registered with our website, providing their name, username, and email address available to the website. The registration provides access to a number of advanced features including our searchable Post Index.
Patrons – have made a financial outlay and a choice to access our tools, premium content and engage with other Patrons and our professionals. We share content and try to answer and respond to short questions we can answer off the top of our heads.
Firm Clients – have engaged us to provide compliance, consultation, transactional and representation services. We place the success of our Firm Clients above just about everything we do. They rely on us for services and advice, and they pay our bills. They have a priority over Guests and Patrons for obvious reasons.
We need strongly emphasize that this offering is NOT more of the same. The skill levels of our professionals are exceptional, the services we provide require substantial experience and skills. If we reflect carefully we can count on one hand the number of firms which we believe have comparable skills in the entire California cannabis market. The articles we publish and the content on our website “telegraph” that message. Perhaps our expertise is most clearly seen in our published comments and participation in the process of commenting on Proposed Regulations and engagement with BCC, CDPH-MCSB, CFDA-CalCannabis, and CDTFA.
Our engagement is with senior Policy Analysts, Branch Chiefs, General Counsel, and Agency Directors. We made a substantial commitment to invest time, dollars and sweat to be part of “the solution” which is a successful transition to a highly regulated market which we hope will thrive.
