Marijuana Transporter License

Concerning licensing marijuana transporters, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.
2016 Regular Session
Liquor, Tobacco, & Marijuana
Bill Summary

The act creates a retail marijuana transporter license and a medical marijuana transporter license. The license is valid for 2 years. A licensed marijuana transporter (transporter) provides logistics, distribution, and storage of marijuana and marijuana products. A transporter may contract with multiple businesses. A transporter must be licensed by July 1, 2017, in order to continue to operate. The state licensing authority shall begin taking applications on January 1, 2017. The act gives the state licensing authority rule-making authority for transporter licensed businesses, including requirements for drivers, including obtaining and maintaining a valid Colorado driver's license; insurance requirements; acceptable time frames for transport, storage, and delivery; requirements for transport vehicles; and requirements for licensed premises.

The act repeals the retail marijuana transport license created in HB 16-1261, concerning continuation of the Colorado retail marijuana code, to avoid a conflict with this act.

$76,284 is appropriated from the marijuana cash fund to the department of revenue for the implementation of this act.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
