Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill allows the Office of Cannabis Policy to impose administrative penalties for violations of the Medical Use of Cannabis program rules instead of civil violations. It directs that the revenue from the penalties be credited to the Medical Use of Cannabis Fund. Any additional costs to the OCP as a result of other provisions in the bill are anticipated to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources.
