Romer Backs Lower Fees for Marijuana Dispensaries

Thread starter #1


Nug of the Month: Aug 2008
A lawmaker trying to regulate medical marijuana dispensaries is backing off a proposal to charge high fees to weed out operators who may have criminal ties.

Sen. Chris Romer said Friday that strict regulations, enforced with armed auditors, is the best way to make sure that dispensaries are following the law.

Romer had proposed that dispensaries pay between $10,000 and $35,000 depending on their size, to apply for a license under new regulations being drafted. Now he's backing lower fees proposed by the Department of Revenue.

Under that plan, dispensaries with fewer than 300 patients would pay $7,500; between 300 and 500 would pay $12,500; and more than 500 would pay $18,000.
