San Jose Marijuana Cooperative MedMar Healing Center Celebrates 1 Year of Serving Patients and Communities
San Jose, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 17, 2011
One year ago, MedMar Healing Center had three patients. Today, the medical marijuana dispensary in San Josecelebrates its first anniversary with over 3,000 patients. Douglas Chloupek, a representative from MedMar, attributes the company’s rapid increase in patients to the investments it has made in the community over the past year.
“MedMar Healing Center has always been enthusiastic about opportunities to help both our patient members and our local community,” said Chloupek. “We’re concerned with more than the health of our patients. We’re dedicated to sustaining a healthy community.”
In February 2011, MedMar partnered with the San Jose Park and Recreational department to host a Guadalupe Creek Clean Up behind Medmar. The team collected nearly 1,000 pounds of trash and debris and restored the native habitat to pristine conditions.
In June, MedMar, in association with Stanford Blood Center, will host a blood drive and benefit concert which is open to the public to help replenish reserves for the crucial mid-summer months when blood banks run low.
MedMar has also assembled a Team in Training in San Jose, which is committed to raising at least $2,500 for cancer research and is currently working with a local shelter to organize a food drive for the homeless in mid-April.
