i CHENEY FREE PRESS Thursday, June 4, 2015 Moratorium NEWS continued from page1 C-834, which established local stan- dards for recreational and medical marijuana facilities within city lim- its. Under the current standards, facilities that grow, process or sell medical marijuana must obtain a business license and a Special dis- pensary permit through the city. "As of right now, no one has ap- plied to build medical cannabis dis- pensaries within the city," Braaten said. Braaten added that the new bill does not affect the city's current I 502 standards regarding recreational cannabis. Under SB 5052, the LCB shall adopt rules similar to that of rec- reational marijuana to regulate the medical marijuana market. The state's main method of regu- lating medical cannabis is through a voluntary medical marijuana authorization database. Patients and providers who register in the database are provided arrest protec- tion and may grow up to 15 plants per housing unit. They may also possess a combination of 48 ounces of marijuana-infused product in solid form, three ounces of usable cannabis, 216 ounces of marijuana product in liquid form or 21 grams of concentrates. If they are a part of a collective garden with other grow- ers, they can produce up to 15 plants per person and 45 total. Patients and providers who do not sign up for the database can grow up to four plants and possess six ounces of usable cannabis. They are also provided an affirmative defense to charges of violat- ing the law on medical use of mari- juana. The bill also states thai mari- juana retail establishments may apply for a med- ical cannabis endorsement through the LCB. The bill also allows minors to use medical marijuana if their parent or guardian authorizes it. Minors under the age of 18 cannot grow medical cannabis, nor purchase it from a retailer. However, they can enter a retail store if a parent or guardian accompanies them. Patients between the ages of 18 and 21 can enter retail outlets by themselves. While most of the bill's regula- tions go into effect in July, the LCB is already contracting with an entity to create, administer and maintain the patient database and exempting disclosure of records. In July 2016, the LCB will repeal "We are trying get this done so we don't set up people who want to build a medical cannabis retail store to be in conflict with the state." Development Services Director Derrick Braaten collective gardens and permit four-mem- ber coop- eratives. The co- operative must reg- ister with the LCB and can grow a maximum of 60 plants -- 15 per member - at one location, which cannot be within a one mile radius of a cannabis re- tailer, The bill allows local governments to create and enforce penalties if growers do not comply with the rules and regulations. "We are trying get this done so we don't set up people who want to build a medical cannabis retail store to be in conflict with the state," Braaten said.
