Medical Marijuana Inventory Shortfall Fixes

Concerning measures to address medical marijuana inventory shortfalls, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
2017 Regular Session
Liquor, Tobacco, & Marijuana
Bill Summary

The medical marijuana system is a vertically integrated regulatory scheme, meaning a medical marijuana center must grow the marijuana that it sells. There is one exception to the vertically integrated market: A medical marijuana center can sell to or buy from other medical marijuana licensees up to 30% of its inventory. The bill eliminates the statutory limit and requires the limit to be set in rule by the state licensing authority as long as it is not set below 30%. The bill states that a medical marijuana center may transfer medical marijuana to another medical marijuana licensee if the licensees have a common owner without the medical marijuana counting towards the limit set in rule.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
