To our prospective members:
  
   Thank you for considering Sunshine Vitality Corp. as the source of your medical cannabis needs. We believe in your right to safe access to medication that will help you feel better. Although there are many different medical marijuana collectives available to join, we pride ourselves on being a model collective, serving the multiple goals of providing high-quality medicine to our members at reasonable prices through a convenient and professional delivery manner, while operating in a way intended to maximize the safety and legal security of Sunshine Vitality Corp. and its members. Thus, it is the policy, purpose and intention of Sunshine Vitality Corp. (the "Collective") to act at all times within the scope of California State Law governing medical marijuana, including Prop. 215 (also known as the "Compassionate Use Act" or "CUA"), Senate Bill 420 (also known as the "Medical Marijuana Program Act" or "MMPA"), and consistent with the California Attorney General Guidelines for the Security and Non-Diversion of Marijuana Grown for Medical Use (August 2008).
 
The Collective has and will continue to consult with legal counsel to ensure its conduct and the conduct of its members related to the Collective is in compliance with these legal provisions. If you wish to be part of a collective that operates as a model in terms of legal compliance, you have come to the right place. To aid you in better understanding the CUA and MMPA, and to help ensure that the medicine cultivated and distributed by the Collective and its members enjoys the fullest protection available under California State Law, we ask that you review and agree to the Collective's Rules, Conditions and Representations governing membership in the Collective, a copy of which will be provided to you to sign before your medication can be delivered.
