Colorado House Bill 1061, also known as the Re-
sponsible Medical Marijuana Vendor Standards
bill, has passed the House floor and was intro-
duced in the Senate on Valentines Day, Feb 14,
where it was assigned to the Finance committee.
UPDATED SUMMARY: HOUSE BILL 13-1061
A person who wants to operate a responsible
medical marijuana vendor server and seller
training program must submit an application
to the medical marijuana state licensing author-
ity. The authority shall approve a program if the
program contains, at a minimum, the following
components:
1-Program standards that specify, at a minimum,
who must attend, the time frame for new staff to
attend, recertification requirements, record-keep-
ing, testing and assessment protocols, and ef-
fectiveness evaluations; and 2-A core curriculum
of pertinent statutory and regulatory provisions,
which curriculum includes:
*Information on required licenses, age require-
ments, patient registry cards issued by the
department of public health and environment,
maintenance of records, privacy issues, and
unlawful acts;
*Administrative and criminal liability and license
and court sanctions;
*Statutory and regulatory requirements for em-
ployees and owners;
*Acceptable forms of identification, including
patient registry cards and associated documents
and procedures; and
*Local and state licensing and enforcement,
which may include, but need not be limited to,
key statutes and rules affecting patients, owners,
managers, and employees.
A responsible medical marijuana vendor may
issue a licensed medical marijuana business
a responsible vendor designation. A business
receives the designation if all employees who sell
or handle medical marijuana, all managers, and
all resident on-site owners successfully complete
a program that the authority has approved. A
designation is valid for 2 years from the date of
issuance. If the authority brings an administra-
tive action against a business that has received
the designation, the authority shall consider the
designation as mitigation.
