Cannalogix Foundation and its parent foundation, Stormy Ray Cardholders’ Foundation have a strict policy in place to govern conflicts of interest in the workplace, and in regards to the foundation mission. While conflicts of interest are generally avoided, there are exceptions under certain circumstances and conditions. There are existing conflicts of interest that the foundation monitors daily for compliance, each of those conflicts were approved by a Board of Directors resolution, outlining the conflicts and their conditional approvals.

 

A series of safeguards define a list of steps necessary for a Director/Officer to maintain compliance with all applicable laws, bylaws, and regulations when operating under a conflict of interest, a brief summary of the process is described as follows; 1) Potential conflicts are submitted by the Director/Officer to be evaluated by the Legal and Compliance Committee for legal opinion and further referred to the Board of Directors for review; 2) Board of Directors reviews the conflict for further evaluation as a potential benefit for the foundation and the entire Board (excluding those related to the conflict) subsequently votes for approval or denial (all conflicts must have a majority vote of the Board of Directors in office excluding those related to the conflict); 3) If denied, the conflict is forbidden and monitored for compliance, if approved, the conflicting business activity is supervised by each; the Legal and Compliance Committee, Board-Committee most closely associated to the conflict, and the Board Secretary/Executive Branch of the Foundation to ensure compliance with all applicable laws, bylaws, rules, and expectations; 4) All conflicts are evaluated annually for the need of potential adjustments to terms necessary to bring the conflict into the favor of the foundation.  All conflicts must be considered beneficial for the foundation in order to be considered, approved,  implemented, or renewed. Cannalogix Foundation is a social purpose entity founded by-patients, for-patients, in the name of patients and welcomes innovative ideas to serve the patients and the medical cannabis movement.
