What can you do if you can’t afford to open a club with a storefront location?
Start a delivery service.
You probably won’t have the same number of customers that you would get through
a convenient storefront location, but you can do pretty well.

You will need a steady source of supply. You can use the
How Fast Can You Make a Marijuana Million page to estimate the amount
of marijuana you would need each week to maintain a given level of customers.
You and your employees should each have their own medical marijuana
recommendations, or be named by someone else as a caregiver.
You will need to collect the standard documentation from each of your clients.
See the Cannabis Club Starter Guide for sample
documenation. You will need cheap, reliable transportation.
You will need a simple computer database to manage your client list. Any simple
contact management software should be able to do the job.
You should have two business telephone lines. One will be for intake of new
patients. This will be the number you put in your advertising. The second
number should be the contact number for registered patients only.
A web page can be very useful in that you can put your current catalog of

catalogs on private pages for customers only. They don’t want “too much”

purchase any marijuana.
When transporting marijuana to clients, there are a few rules:
Make sure the vehicle is properly registered, doesn’t have any obvious defects
like burnt-out tail lights, and has adequate gasoline. Vehicle problems are
often a ticket to an unpleasant encounter with the police.
Obey the traffic laws – always. Don't smoke your own medicine along the way.
Don’t give the police excuses to stop you.
Carry only what you need for any given delivery trip.
Secure the products in a sealed container, preferably in the trunk.
Call to verify the appointments when you are on the way.
