SB 265 A New Bill which passed in the 2019 Legislation. Click HERE for the bills full text

This bill generally revises medical marijuana laws in many ways, though main changes are untethering patients from providers and changing the provider fee and canopy structure. This bill has passed the House and Senate, as amended, and is now awaiting the Governor's signature.

Some provisions in this bill include: aligning state laboratory language with HB 598, allowing transfer and use of medical marijuana funds for peer support programs, allowing for telemedicine visits with written certification, 4% tax on gross sales (between Oct 2019 to Oct 2021, then back down to 2%), new providers licensed at either micro or tier 1 canopy to start, requiring a minimum annual fee for cardholders of $20, and requiring a dispensary location fee, based on number of registered premises.
