The launch of Agora C Business Services –

Agora C Business Services exists to solve the critical issues facing cannabis operators, both large and small. Their unique approach is not only what differentiates them, but also what makes them successful. They provide a broad range of services and solutions to help “grey market” cannabis operations transition into the regulated market, achieve their vision and optimize performance and productivity.

Agora C Business Services is the culmination of a restructuring of the Law Office of Dale Schafer, in order to lower the legal fees associated with entering or transitioning to the regulated cannabis market and service more cannabis operators in CA. By contracting with Agora C Business services, I can lower the cost for 3/4 of the necessary work required to obtain “Local Authorization” and a state license for CA cannabis businesses. I can also help operators to formulate good teams and train those teams in all areas necessary to adequately run a cannabis corporation, thereby helping those businesses to be as sustainable as possible.

I would encourage anyone seeking to enter or transition into California’s regulated cannabis market to visit the Agora C Business Services website and subscribe for all upcoming events and information on the opening of the El Dorado County Resource Center.

  1. Incredible Blog. Cannabis could be the healing plant that has been found in ayurveda for thousand of years. Contemporary medicine without any unique cure for cancer, has made that medicinal place inaccessible to victims who require that place to cure themselves of various ailments. Gracias.


  2. I have been following your story since before you and Mollie were ever arrested. My husband was the AT&T guy in Cool so we knew about you. I thought that if you did time in prison you would lose you license, is that not the case. Are you still a practicing attorney, I sure hope so?


    1. Hi Theresa, this is Heather Schafer, Dale’s Legal Assistant and oldest daughter. My dad didn’t lose his license as he did not commit a crime of morale turpitude. I maintained it throughout his prison sentence and once he was officially released from probation, in late November, we were able to begin taking clients again. I appreciate your husband so much as I was the one he communicated with, during that time. So happy to hear from you.
