Mike Corral: Court qualified expert witness and agricultural director of WAMM has been cultivating marijuana in Santa Cruz County for 35 years. He has consulted with and advised numerous patients and organizations in the U.S. and internationally. Including the Ministry of Health of Israel in it’s effort to establish a government sponsored Medical Marijuana program. His expertise is in all phases of marijuana production.
Valerie Leveroni Corral: The co-founder the Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana. Since 1993, WAMM has served thousands of critically ill members of our community with organic medical marijuana on a donation basis. I have served as director of WAMM for 17 years. I have worked with Mike Corral to cultivate heirloom, medical marijuana for more than 35 years WAMM is a revolutionary collective, the only one of its kind in the nation. The federal court calls WAMM the "gold standard of the medical marijuana movement." From our grassroots foundation we have built a truly unique social movement. At the same time we have witnessed the death of at least one member a month from terminal illness. Some would have been alone and without resources. In these cases, and whenever asked, I attend to needs of our dying friends, including organizing our caregiver team to help WAMM members greet death with as comfortable and noble a transition as possible.
Santa Cruz Attorney Ben Rice. "Ben Rice is one of the most experienced medical marijuana attorneys in the country. His depth of knowledge and expertise concerning California's medical marijuana laws, and his ability to navigate the complex legal and political landscape surrounding the issue are unsurpassed. Ben is a fiercely committed advocate for medical marijuana patients and those who care for them. Ben has litigated cases as co-counsel with the National ACLU, and we regularly refer clients with medical marijuana questions to him, for the simple reason that he is the very best at what he does."

Since the passage of the California Compassionate Use Act of 1996, he has also been performing Medical Cannabis evaluations, and has written and lectured on the subject. In 2004, he co-authored the widely read article "Implementation of the Compassionate Use Act in a Family Medical Practice, Seven Years' Clinical Experience" with Mariavittoria Mangini, PhD, FNP, published in O'Shaughnessy's, the Journal of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians.

He is also founder of the Association of Independent Medical-Legal Consultants (AIMLegal.org), to give expert medical testimony for legitimate patients who use cannabis medicinally, and for responsible physicians who recommend it appropriately, both in California, as well as in other states. He lectures on medical cannabis, and practice standards, and is particularly interested in speaking to physician groups to increase the number of responsible physicians willing to make appropriate recommendations for this safe and effective medicine. Dr. Lucido is a member of Society of Cannabis Clinicians, and Physicians for Social Responsibility. Co-Founder of American Association of Cannabinoid Medicine (AACM)
