Under current law, a licensed medical or retail marijuana business may receive a responsible vendor designation (designation) if all of its employees successfully complete an approved course. If the business is subject to a licensing action, the designation can be considered a mitigating factor in the licensing action. The act allows an individual to receive a designation and provides the same licensing mitigation protection to that individual in a licensing action. The act clarifies how a business receives and maintains a designation and allows a person with a designation to take that designation with them to a new employer.
