01:39 PM -- HB 17-1034



Senator Baumgardner introduced House Bill 17-1034, concerning medical marijuana licensing issues. The reengrossed bill conforms the medical marijuana code to the retail marijuana code by creating a license for medical marijuana business operators and allowing medical marijuana licensees to relocate anywhere in Colorado if state and local permission is granted. The bill requires the Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) in the Department of Revenue (DOR) to give a licensee an opportunity to remediate a product if a test indicates the presence of a microbial in the product. If the licensee is unable to remediate the product, then the licensee is required to document and destroy the product. The bill also allows medical marijuana-infused products and manufacturers to buy from and sell to another medical marijuana-infused products manufacturer.

Jim Burack, Department of Revenue, spoke in support of the bill.



01:47 PM --
Jessica LeRoux, representing herself, spoke about her concerns with the bill.
