The Green Cross Celebrates 7 Years Supporting Safe Access to Medical Marijuana in San Francisco

The Green Cross was incorporated as a California public benefit non-profit medical marijuana patient collective seven years ago, in July 2004. Since then, the San Francisco marijuana dispensary has become well known for its safe and discreet delivery service, commitment to social and environmental responsibility, absolute compliance with state and local laws, and generosity to local and national charitable organizations.

“In seven years since we first incorporated with the State of California, The Green Cross has experienced its ups and downs. But today we are proud to be among the City’s best licensed collectives,” declared Kevin Reed, president of The Green Cross.

In light of its strict adherence to state and local laws and outstanding citizenship, The Green Cross was awarded San Francisco’s first medical cannabis dispensary (MCD) permit to operate exclusively as a delivery service in 2007. The Green Cross remains San Francisco’s only licensed ‘delivery-only’ medical cannabis club in San Francisco. Its professional drivers deliver quality medical cannabis products directly, safely, and discreetly to patients anywhere in the city free of charge.

The Green Cross’ commitment to incorporate operational standards that demonstrate integrity and accountability is underscored by their A+ rating and full accreditation by the Golden Gate Better Business Bureau (BBB) and the Green America Seal of Approval, which helps socially and environmentally responsible consumers locate businesses that operate under the same ethics. Moreover, Reed was appointed by the SF Board of Supervisors to a two-year seat on the Medical Cannabis Task Force, where he fights for the rights of patients and smart regulations for safe and legal access.

This year, The Green Cross unveiled a new laboratory testing program for its entire line of medical cannabis. The program is intended to help patients make educated decisions before they purchase their medication.

The Green Cross is committed to keeping San Francisco a safe, diverse, and special place to live and work. “Volunteer groups and non-profit organizations do so much to help our community, but we realize they cannot do it alone,” says Reed. “The Green Cross invests in community partnership because we have a responsibility to help our neighbors and contribute to the common good.”

Some of the local charitable and service organizations The Green Cross supports include:

•    YMCA SF-Mission, YMCA SF-Presidio and the YMCA Run for Kids program
•    The ARC of San Francisco
•    SF AIDS Foundation
•    SF Chapter of Americans for Safe Access
•    The San Francisco Food Bank
•    The Harvey Milk Club
•    Americans for Safe Access
•    The Drug Policy Alliance
•    Students for Sensible Drug Policy
The Green Cross was organized to provide safe and legal access to medical cannabis for qualified patients in accordance with California and San Francisco laws. Unfortunately, these laws conflict with federal marijuana laws. “Changing federal law and advancing safe access to medical cannabis is important for the long-term sustainability of our collective,” says Reed. “The Green Cross invests in national advocacy groups because we believe patients should have safe and legal access no matter where they live.”
