Dec. 3-9, 2019 Dispensary Compliance Updates



In California, the Bureau of Cannabis Control announced Cannabis Advisory Committee meetings set for this month.

The BCC recently sent hundreds of letters notifying landlords that the Bureau has information their property is being used for illegal cannabis activity. These letters warn landlords that they may personally be subject to criminal and civil penalties for allowing illegal cannabis activity to occur on their property.

Michigan recreational marijuana sales began December 1st. The Marijuana Regulatory Agency issued a bulletin stating that licensed provisioning centers may transfer up to 50% of each product type (marijuana-infused product, marijuana concentrate, buds, etc.) that has been in inventory for a minimum of 30 days to their marijuana retailer inventory. All product that is transferred must have passed all state tests (including testing for the presence of Vitamin E Acetate in vape products) and those results must have been entered in the statewide monitoring system. After 10:00 AM on Sunday, December 1, 2019, MRA employees will make sure the necessary changes are made in METRC to open the transfer window to allow the marijuana product transfers to take place. Licensees must have received written permission from the MRA by Wednesday, November 27, 2019 to make the product transfers on December 1.

In Oregon, the November 2019 Commission meeting is now available on YouTube from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.

In Washington, the legislative report required under a budget proviso for the Liquor and Cannabis Board concerning the feasibility of taxing cannabis by potency was issued. It was drafted in consultation with the potency tax working group in which Green Bits was the only POS member. The work group arrived at consensus in acknowledging that such a change would not be feasible at this time and recommended maintaining the status quo until several outstanding questions can be answered. For more information on the details of the legislative report, contact compliance@greenbits.com. 

The WSLCB Traceability 2.0 Work Group informal GUID Subcommittee meeting arrived at recommendations for a network architecture, identifier qualities, and a recommended algorithm for the autonomous generation of globally unique identifiers (GUIDs) in any future traceability system. After review at the Integrator Work Session this Thursday, the recommendations will be shared with the Traceability 2.0 Work Group prior to their next meeting on Monday December 9th.
