Information for dispensaries regarding compliance and enforcement:
A registered dispensary is subject to on-site assessments by the CCB at any time, without notice. Failure to cooperate with required assessments may be grounds to revoke a dispensary registration certificate. Further information on the licensing and regulation of medical dispensaries may be found in the Board's proposed rules.
