Rule 29. Plant batches, testing procedures.

(1) A grower shall uniquely identify each immature plant batch in the statewide monitoring system. Each immature plant batch must not consist of more than 100 immature plants.

(2) A grower shall tag each plant that is greater than 8 inches in height or more than 8 inches in width with an individual plant tag and record the identification information in the statewide monitoring system.

(3) A grower shall delineate or separate the plants as the plants go through different growth stages and ensure that the plant tag is always identified with the plant throughout the growth span so that all plants can be easily identified and inspected pursuant to the act and these rules. A grower shall ensure that identification information is recorded in the statewide monitoring system in accordance with the act, the marihuana tracking act, and these rules.

(4) After a tagged plant is harvested, it is part of a harvest batch so that a sample of the harvest batch can be tested by a safety compliance facility. A grower shall isolate a harvest batch from other plants or batches that has test results pending. A harvest batch must be easily distinguishable from other harvest batches until the batch is broken down into packages.

(5) Before the marihuana product can leave the grower facility, a sample of the harvest batch must be tested by a licensed safety compliance facility as provided in Rule 32, and test results must indicate a passed test result in the statewide monitoring system before the marihuana can be packaged. Marihuana product from harvest batches must not be transferred or sold until tested, packaged, and tagged as required under subrule (4) of this rule.

(6) After test results show a passed test, the grower shall destroy the individual plant tags and the harvest batch is packaged. Each package must have a package tag attached. A grower shall ensure this information is placed in the statewide monitoring system in accordance with the act, the marihuana tracking act, and these rules.

(7) A grower shall not transfer or sell any marihuana product that has not been packaged with a package tag attached and recorded in the statewide monitoring system in accordance with the act, the marihuana tracking act, and these rules.

(8) After a processor receives or purchases a package in the statewide monitoring system, and the processor proceeds to process the marihuana product in accordance with the scope of a processor license, the act, and these rules, the processor must give the marihuana product a new package tag anytime it changes state or is incorporated into something else.

(9) Once a package is created by a processor of the marihuana product in its final state, the processor shall have the sample tested pursuant to Rule 32. The processor shall not transfer or sell a final package until after test results indicate a passed test.

(10) After a provisioning center receives or purchases marihuana product in the statewide monitoring system, a licensee may sell or transfer marihuana product only to a registered qualifying patient or registered primary caregiver under all of the following conditions:

(a) The marihuana product has received passing test results in the statewide monitoring system. If the information cannot be confirmed, the marihuana product must be tested by a safety compliance facility and receive passing test results prior to sale or transfer.

(b) The marihuana product bears the label required for retail sale under the act and these rules.
