Description

By January 1, 2021, the bill requires the marijuana state licensing
authority to promulgate rules regarding the process and procedure for
filing and approving contingency plans for outdoor cultivation facilities
when there is a threat to operations due to an adverse weather event or
other catastrophe. A medical marijuana cultivation facility or retail

marijuana cultivation facility may file a contingency plan with the state
licensing authority and, if the plan is approved, may follow the plan if
there is an adverse weather event or other catastrophe.
Prior to January 1, 2021, a medical marijuana cultivation facility
licensee or retail marijuana cultivation facility licensee that cultivates
marijuana outdoors may take any reasonable and necessary action to
prevent or ameliorate crop loss due to an adverse weather event. The
action is not a violation of state or local law or regulations unless the state
licensing authority or local authorities can show that the action was not
reasonable and necessary to prevent or ameliorate crop loss due to an
adverse weather event.
