LARA RELEASE – Unlicensed Medical Marihuana Facilities must close on October 31, 2018 

 
The Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) has issued new emergency administrative rules to continue the implementation of the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA). These rules will ensure:
 

Under the new rules, proposed medical marihuana facilities that would otherwise require a state operating license under the MMFLA may continue to operate with local approval until October 31, 2018 without impacting the applicant’s eligibility for licensure.
 

These emergency rules, while in effect, supersede:

 
Under these new emergency rules, after the 30-calendar-day period has elapsed, any marihuana product that was not acquired in compliance with the MMFLA and the 5/30/18 Emergency Rules – from a licensed marihuana facility – must be destroyed in accordance with Rule 36 of the 5/30/18 Emergency Rules.
 
Applicants who have been temporarily operating with local authorization – and have been issued a state operating license by October 31, 2018 – must do the following within a 30-calendar-day transition period beginning the day a state operating license is received:

Under these new emergency rules, after the 30-calendar-day period has elapsed, any marihuana product that was not acquired in compliance with the MMFLA and the 5/30/18 Emergency Rules – from a licensed marihuana facility – must be destroyed in accordance with Rule 36 of the 5/30/18 Emergency Rules.

All temporary operators should consider transition plans to licensure and the impact they may have on their current business operation. Temporary operators who have not yet filed the facility portion of their application are almost certainly not going to be presented to the Medical Marihuana Licensing Board at the meeting on October 18, 2018.

At any time during this 30-calendar-day period and thereafter, a marihuana facility is subject to an inspection by the department, through its investigators, agents, auditors, or the state police. These rules are set to expire November 30, 2018.
