Compliance Audits for Medical Marijuana Businesses
For dispensaries, growers and processors of medical marijuana, license requirements are strict, changing and on-going. Before you apply for a license, seek an annual license renewal or when face an OMMA investigation or inspection, your business can retain a medical marijuana attorney to conduct a compliance audit. A medical marijuana attorney‘s compliance audit will show you where your business stands in regard to OMMA compliance.
A new requirement for each facility used by medical marijuana businesses for a Certificate of Compliance requires additional efforts by businesses seeking to renew licenses or expand their business. The new measure verifies compliance with local town, city and county regulations. A medical marijuana lawyer can conduct compliance audits while preparing your facilities to meet Certificate of Compliance requirements.
OMMA Inspections and Investigations
The OMMA may inspect your medical marijuana business and facilities to determine license compliance at any time. They may also require you or your employees to sit for investigative interviews. If your business or some facility owned by your business is the subject of an OMMA investigation, complaint or inspection contact a medical marijuana lawyer to audit your OMMA compliance. To avoid future risks, engage a medical marijuana lawyer to make sure you are ready for whatever an OMMA inspection or investigation brings your way.
License holders face exceptional risks when they are found to be out of compliance with license requirements. Deficiencies resulting in license revocation or non-renewal will be reported to the applicant in writing. Licensees may request and can be granted an administrative hearing to contest findings resulting in revocation.
Such a revocation hearing is similar to the kind of adversarial proceeding you might expect in a court of law. Proceedings are recorded. You have the right to an attorney. When a revocation hearing could shut down your business, your best choice is to have medical marijuana attorney representing you.
