Putting the CARE in caregiving
The Variety seeks to provide the best possible service to verified patients. Using exclusive cultivators has allowed us to create a closed circuit collective, consistently giving our patient’s the most safe, legal access to high quality medicine.

To all TV members,
We would like to thank you for your continued support through this time and again apologize for lack of updates. Your voices are unquestionably being heard and we are without a doubt progressing in our goal to once again provide safe and legal access to patients in Orange County. This process has been lengthy and difficult due to the number of illegal facilities that continue to operate during this time. Supporting these illegal facilities will only encourage more raids from the county and make it more challenging to re-establish permanent and safe access to medical marijuana in Orange County. There is much confidence that The Variety Co-op will reopen its doors very soon. We have created an e-mail list for members who wish to be alerted with our reopening.
Until then please continue to check our website for any updates,
The Variety Co-op Staff

First of all, we would like to thank all of our members who have been contacting the county in support of The Variety Co-op. We apologize for the lack of updates since we have closed. Over the past month, we have been working our hardest to restore legal and safe access to patients living in Orange County. There has been much progress, and with your continued support, we are confident that The Variety Co-op will reopen very soon. Our hopes are to be able to open our doors sometime this month (February). Until we are able to open again, please continue contacting the county and tell them to restore safe legal access to marijuana in Orange County. As of now, Orange County residents and patients do not have a legal facility to access medicinal marijuana; only facilities without permits.
Updates will be posted as we receive them, so keep checking our website for more information.

For those of you who were uninformed, the Orange County Board of Supervisors passed an ordinance on December 7th, 2010 calling for the ban of all medical marijuana dispensaries, collectives and cooperatives in unincorporated Orange County. In accordance with the new ordinance, The Variety Co-op will be temporarily closing its doors on January 7th, 2010 until an agreement can be made with the County. For the past two years, The Variety Co-op has worked hard every day to provide a safe, comfortable and compassionate place for the patients in our community to come to for their medicine. The Variety Co-op Staff will continue to make every effort possible to provide this service. We will be working our hardest every day to articulate to the County the importance of local, legal and safe access to medical marijuana and pleading our case to re-open for our patients. The Variety Co-op does not want to operate against the wishes of the Board of Supervisors but will pursue the necessary measures to ensure legal access for the residents of Orange County.
It is very possible we can overcome this ban, but not without the help of all the members of The Variety Co-op! You are encouraged to contact your local District Supervisor. Please let them know the positive ways in which medical marijuana has benefitted your life and how much safe and legal access to your medication, as promised in Proposition 215 & SB 420, means to you. You can reach the office of your local Supervisor either by phone, fax or email. Their contact information is below:
Supervisor John Moorlach
Serving: Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Fountain Valley, Los Alamitos, Stanton and Cypress
E-mail: email@example.com & John.Moorlach@ocgov.com
Supervisor Janet Nguyen
Serving: Midway City, Westminster, Santa Ana, and Garden Grove
Supervisor Bill Campbell
Serving: Orange, Tustin, Irvine, Villa Park, Yorba Linda, and Brea
Supervisor Shawn Nelson
Serving: Anaheim, Buena Park, Fullerton, La Habra, and Placentia
Supervisor Pat Bates
Serving: Aliso Viejo, Dana Point, Laguna Beach, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente, and San Juan Capistrano
Please be sure to contact your local Supervisor and/or Supervisor Janet Nguyen (The Variety Co-op’s local Supervisor) as many times as you can to let them know the importance of safe and legal medical and those who provide it.
ALSO, The Variety Co-op will be creating a mailing list for constant updates on our current situation. Until then, be sure to check our website frequently for updates.
Thank you to all our members for your support,
The Variety Co-op Staff

Medical marijuana advocates upped the ante Tuesday in the legal battle over Los Angeles’ pot dispensaries by suing the city, claiming the ordinance that takes effect later this month is so restrictive it will cause even law-abiding businesses to shut down.
Americans for Safe Access, the nation’s main medical marijuana advocacy nonprofit, filed the lawsuit with the Venice Beach Care Center and the PureLife Alternative Wellness Center, two dispensaries that have operated in Los Angeles since 2006 — before the city’s moratorium on the centers took effect.
