As a qualified patient, I choose to become an Associate Member of the Collective.
II. I hereby appoint and designate the Collective and its representatives as my true and lawful agents for the limited purpose of assisting me in my medical cannabis needs.

IV. I understand that all application fees (if applicable) and membership fees (if applicable) paid to the Collective will be used by the Collective to reimburse for actual expenses and reasonable costs associated with the operation of the Collective. In addition, I understand that in order to remain a viable nonprofit entity the Collective must charge its members for medical cannabis, and that the Collective will only charge an amount that allows for it to cover its actual expenses and reasonable costs associated with the operation of the Collective, including all overhead expenses, a reasonable salary for any one or more of its officers as determined by the Board of Directors of the Collective, and an appropriate amount of reserve funds to be used for improvements to the Collective's operations, emergencies, repairs, or as otherwise determined by the Board of Directors of the Collective.

In addition, I authorize the Collective to make photocopies of such documents and to keep such photocopies with the Collective's business records, which may be digital, physical, or both. I acknowledge that the Collective will attempt to keep such personal information confidential, but may be required by law, court order, or otherwise to reveal any or all of such information to third parties, including local, state, and/or federal authorities.
VI.
