So i was reading up growing laws in california and the law states that a card holder, or thier designated caregiver, can have up to 6 mature plants at any given time.
So i called up one of my good freinds who is a cardholder and asked him if he'd be willing to designate me as his caregiver since he isn't growing and he said he would be happy to if i figured out the paper work and everything that he had to sign.
I am just wondering if anyone on here knows what we have to do for him to legally designate me as his caregiver because i haven't had any luck finding anything online.
WORD TO YOUR MOTHER-everything i say here is not to be taken seriously, I only come on here to look cool. and man do i look cool.
I wanted to know if you learned anything about becoming a caregiver.
I have card carrying friend who as cancer and iging through some intense chemo.
Presently he is given a bottle of liquid morphine which he uses when needed.
He can not afford to buy the weed.
Public assistance is covering his medical costs.
Please let meknow what you have learned.
i am trying to research the same thing
My friend is a caregiver for someone. In short he has a form that says X is Y's caregiver. It has both X and Y's signatures on it saying blah blah blah can grow my plants for me ya know...In california it's pretty simple. I mean if it looks official they don't really care lol.
You really have to b careful with the whole caregiver thing because just growing marijuana for someone dosnt classify you as their caregiver this was taken from the canorml.org websit
A *"primary caregiver" is narrowly defined under Prop. 215 to be "the individual designated [by a legal patient] who has consistently assumed responsibility for the housing, health, or safety of that person."* The law does not explicitly allow patients to have multiple caregivers. In contrast, a caregiver may serve more than one patient.
The State Supreme Court has ruled that defendants are not entitled to a caregiver defense if all they do is grow or supply medical marijuana to patients. In the case People v. Mentch (200, the court ruled: "a defendant whose caregiving consisted principally of supplying marijuana and instructing on its use, and who otherwise only sporadically took some patients to medical appointments, cannot qualify as a primary caregiver." The court went on to specify: "a defendant asserting primary caregiver status must prove at a minimum that he or she (1) consistently provided caregiving, (2) independent of any assistance in taking medical marijuana, (3) at or before the time he or she assumed responsibility for assisting with medical marijuana."
I have been searching for the same thing. I think this form may be the answer to your question.

marijuana! So I asked the guy, being I am there almost every other day, what does it take, and so on, to grow. So they were selling seeds left and right, not even worried about how much you buy.... (I bought 4 strains in one day all feminized) then was obligated to the whole set up. I'm just going by the book starting out with 3 strains using 2 seeds of each strain with a 400w MH & 400w HPS bulb and a Cool-Air Reflector as my reflector. To get to the point, I was told if I wanted to grow more plants I would need a copy of the patients info, all signed and agreed stating this patient is legit. Then, wherever your grow-room is have it around in a safe area, but obvious if need be encase the police had gotten an anonymous call due to lights always being on. Better safe than sorry so I just bought a folder with ALL the info and set the folder next to the crop. If you do end up being a caregiver then you can double your crop to 12 mature plants and having 12 more on their way. Doing that would mean you need tents, one for veg growth and one for flowering. This isn't cheap by the way, doubling your crop basically means doubling your equipment. I found all that out and just stuck my plants in my guest bedroom, six plants, all doing fine without a tent, they have great ventilation due to two windows and a rotating fan. I don't need 12 plants... just enough to smoke as much as I want throughout the year at whatever rate I want. I can keep growing good bud as long as I am legit and stay "by the book" because shit does happen. One of these days I think I will buy a tent for both stages though, making it faster to have the other 6 on their way.
Why is Monday so far away from Friday, yet Friday is so close to Monday...
go to the place you got you card, take your friend with you, and let the doc know the situation, it is almost the same as just getting your card cept you cant smoke as a caregiver
