I am a facility that is currently operating with local authorization - what do I do with my current marijuana inventory? What are the transition periods?

To ensure the safety, security, and integrity of the operation of marijuana facilities, there is a transition period consisting of 30 calendar days during which marihuana product can be entered into the statewide monitoring system to ensure statewide tracking beginning on the day a state operating license is issued to a licensee for the first time. This rule does not apply to additional stacked licenses.

Within the 30-calendar-day period, a licensee shall do all of the following:

  • Record all marijuana product in the statewide monitoring system as prescribed by the act and the rules.
  • Tag or package all inventory that has been identified in the statewide monitoring system as prescribed by the act and the rules.
  • Comply with all testing requirements as prescribed by the act and the rules.

After the 30-calendar-day period, any marijuana product that has not been identified in the statewide monitoring system under these rules and the act is prohibited from being onsite at a marihuana facility. A violation of this rule may result in sanctions or fines, or both.

Also, until December 31, 2018, for a period of 30 days after the issuance of a grower license -- and in accord with rules -- a grower may transfer any of the following that are lawfully possessed by an individual formerly registered as a primary caregiver who is an active employee of the grower:

  • Marijuana plants
  • Seeds
  • Seedlings
