  • Unless otherwise noted within the rule, adopted rules are effective January 1, 2018. Licensees should continue to comply with the current rules until that date.

  • The adopted rules published on the Division's website are not an amalgamated version of all medical and retail marijuana rules - they only include new and amended rules that were subject to the Division's 2017 permanent rulemaking session.

  • An amalgamated version of the medical and retail marijuana rules that incorporate new and amended rules will be made available on the Division's website after the Secretary of State publishes the official amalgamated version.
