November 28, 2018 – At a meeting of the Medical Marihuana Licensing Board (MMLB) next week, the Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) will recommend the board pass a resolution to maintain safe patient access to medical marihuana.
While it is still best practice – and recommended – for licensed provisioning centers and licensed processors to source their marihuana product through licensed growers, supplementing the supply of medical marihuana products – through registered primary caregivers – will assist licensed provisioning centers with meeting the needs of patients.
Since patient access to medical marihuana is best served through the provisioning of medical marihuana products by licensed facilities, LARA’s Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation (BMMR) will recommend the MMLB pass a resolution at its December 7, 2018 meeting that acknowledges that the board will not take disciplinary action against a licensee in the following circumstances:
Licensed Provisioning Centers
The board will not take disciplinary action against licensed provisioning centers for purchasing marihuana products from registered primary caregivers as long as the following conditions are met.
From the date of board’s adoption through December 31, 2018, licensees:
From January 1, 2019 – January 31, 2019, licensees:
Licensed Growers and Processors
The board will not take disciplinary action against licensed growers and processors for purchasing marihuana products from registered primary caregivers as long as the following conditions are met.
