Summary

The bill requires future contracts for the seed-to-sale tracking
system to be awarded pursuant to a transparent, online, and dynamically
competitive process. The bill requires the state licensing authority to
produce an annual report regarding its enforcement activities. The report
must include:
  • The number of underage compliance checks performed in

the previous calendar year;
  • The number of underage sale violations in the previous
calendar year, including the name of the license violator,
how many violations were the result of underage
compliance checks or tips, and the sanction or sanctions
imposed for each violation; and
  • A description of the black or gray market enforcement
activities that the state licensing authority engaged in,
including the dates of the activities, any violations found,
and the result of those violations if known.
The bill requires the state licensing authority to produce an annual
report regarding licensing violations. The report must be organized by
month, include the name of the violator and the violation location, and
identify the violation and the sanction or sanctions imposed and if the
sanction is a license revocation or voluntary surrender of a license and the
reason for the revocation or voluntary surrender.
The state licensing authority shall maintain a free searchable
database on its website related to compliance check records and minor in
possession of marijuana records and an online method for submitting an
anonymous tip related to licensing violations.
The bill requires the state licensing authority to conduct at least 2
compliance checks a year at each medical and retail marijuana center.
The bill requires regulatory penalties related to underage sales to
be based on the number of violations and any injury or death that
occurred as a result of the violation.
The bill requires the state licensing authority to promulgate rules
regarding:
  • Product recalls, including a requirement for the issuance of
a health and safety advisory when a product is recalled that
includes the name of the product, the timing of when the
consumer would receive the advisory, the places where the
product was sold, the time period when the product was for
sale, the requested actions that the state licensing authority
may direct to a seller, cultivator, or manufacturer, and any
other additional information that would assist the public;
and
  • Timelines and deadlines for notifying a licensee of an
alleged violation; a licensee's response to an alleged
violation; and a licensee's compliance with any sanction
imposed, which must require, in the case of an uncontested
violation, that the licensee has 90 days to comply with the
sanction.
The bill directs that when the state licensing authority convenes a
work group, task force, or other group to assist in developing rules or
policies that involve public health and consumer safety, the state licensing
authority shall make every reasonable attempt to have broad
representation from non-marijuana industry parties on the work group,
task force, or other group. The bill requires the state licensing authority
to provide any written materials received from a member of the group or
task force to all members of the group or task force within 7 days after
receipt of the material; except that any proprietary information must be
redacted from the material.
The bill requires that when the state licensing authority reports a
voluntary surrender of a license that is the result of a settlement or
agreement with the licensing authority, the report shall designate the
action as voluntary surrender - licensing violation settlement.
