OPINION: Thank you, Hollister, from Purple Cross RX

Purple Cross RX owners Scott McPhail and Kim Hurtado thank the Hollister City Council for its unanimous vote to allow them to operate a medical cannabis dispensary in Hollister.

Kim and I are humbled and grateful for this opportunity for Purple Cross RX to operate in Hollister. We want to say thank you to the Hollister City Council for voting unanimously at its special meeting on Aug. 14 to allow Purple Cross Rx dispensary to re-open in Hollister and we are thankful to our many supporters in San Benito County who spoke at public meetings and wrote letters on our behalf. 

Purple Cross RX was also granted a manufacturing permit. These permits will enable Purple Cross RX to invest in a new business, create jobs, patronize local construction trades, support local commerce and raise tax revenue in the City of Hollister.  

We look forward to working with the city and our community to provide safe access to the highest quality Prop. 215 medical cannabis products and we are committed to providing funds and resources to give back to our community and support many of the nonprofits that serve the poor, the hungry, the homeless and at-risk youth in San Benito County.
