02:14 PM -- HB16-1211



Senator Baumgardner, co-prime sponsor, presented House Bill 16-1211 and amendment L.007 (Attachment A). The reengrossed bill creates state medical and retail marijuana transporter (marijuana transporter) licenses to be issued by the Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) in the Department of Revenue (DOR), and allows for the issuance of a local medical marijuana transporter license. A marijuana transporter provides logistics, distribution, and storage of medical and retail marijuana and marijuana-infused products, but is not authorized to sell marijuana under any circumstances. All marijuana transporters must be licensed by July 1, 2017, with the exception of a marijuana transporter for a medical marijuana business or retail marijuana establishment that provides its own distribution. The MED must begin accepting applications by January 1, 2017.

State marijuana transporter licenses are valid for three years and cannot be transferred with a change of ownership. Marijuana transporters may operate a licensed off-premises storage facility that meets the same security requirements as a medical marijuana optional premise cultivation license or a retail marijuana cultivation license as long as it is located in a jurisdiction that allows its operation.



Marijuana transporters are required to use the MED seed-to-sale tracking system to create shipping manifests documenting the transport of medical and retail marijuana and marijuana-infused products throughout the state. A marijuana transporter is responsible for all medical and retail marijuana and marijuana-infused products once it takes control of the product. Marijuana transporters may contract with multiple medical and retail marijuana licensees.
