OUR STORY

Serving the senior community of Laguna Woods Village since 2009; a true grassroots collective is born from the creative, caring minds of a small group of seniors residing in Laguna Woods, California - as well as a couple of long time activists.

The group included two retired nurses: Margo, an Aquadette battling Multiple Sclerosis; and Anna, whom helped write California's Prop 215; Dr. Bill, a former family physician & government health official; Andy, a union sound man from a local outdoor concert venue; Jon, a retired lawyer with male breast cancer;  Tracy, a NORML activist & doctors office personnel; and Lonnie Painter.

​Laguna Woods was the first city in Orange County to approve medical cannabis. The city council unanimously voted in favor of coding laws to allow cannabis dispensaries; however, some property managers in the city refused to rent to dispensaries, stating federal legalities as their reasoning.

Our Founder

Lonnie Painter, a restauranteur and chef, is a former member of the Orange Coast College's Advisory Committee in the Culinary Arts. He has taught chef apprentices from OCC's Culinary Arts program at his award winning restaurant in Laguna Beach, Cafe Zoolu. Painter, as director of the Village Cannabis Collective, has brought the same high quality care he demonstrated while running his prized restaurant.
