I. Introduction

Pursuant to Business and Professions Code section 26011.5, the protection of the public is of the highest priority for the Department of Cannabis Control (Department). In keeping with its mandate to protect the public, the Department has adopted these recommended uniform guidelines in order to promote consistency in disciplinary orders for similar offenses on a statewide basis. This document is intended for use by those involved in the administrative disciplinary process (e.g., Administrative Law Judges (ALJ), Deputy Attorneys General (DAG), Department licensees and their legal counsel, and other interested parties), and may be revised from time to time, and distributed to interested parties upon request.

The Department requests that the suggested disciplinary orders contained in these guidelines be levied consistently and appropriately, based on the nature and seriousness of the violation(s) confirmed in an administrative action. The Department recognizes that mitigating or aggravating circumstances, in addition to other factors, may necessitate departure from these recommended orders and terms of probation. If there are any deviations from the guidelines, the Department requests that the ALJ hearing the matter include an explanation in the Proposed Decision so that the circumstances can be better understood and evaluated by the Department before final action is taken.

Additionally, these guidelines only apply to formal administrative disciplinary processes. These guidelines do not apply to other alternatives available to the Department, such as administrative citations and fines, except in cases where an Accusation has been filed for failure to pay an assessed administrative fine and/or comply with an order of abatement issued by the Department.

II. Factors To Be Considered In Determining Penalties

In determining whether revocation, suspension, probation, fine, or a combination is to be imposed in a given case, factors such as the following should be considered:

  1. Nature and gravity of the act(s), violations, offenses, or crime(s) under consideration.
  2. Actual or potential harm to the public.
  3. Actual or potential harm to any consumer.
  4. Prior disciplinary and/or administrative record.
  5. Number and/or variety of current violations.
  6. Mitigating evidence.
  7. Rehabilitation evidence, including but not limited to, a statement of rehabilitation containing any evidence that demonstrates fitness for licensure, or a certificate of rehabilitation under Penal Code section 4852.01.
  8. In case of a criminal conviction, compliance with conditions of sentence and/or court- ordered probation.
  9. Overall criminal record.
  10. Time passed since the act(s) or offense(s) occurred.
  11. If applicable, evidence of dismissal under Penal Code sections 1203.4, 1203.4a, 1203.41, or 1203.42.
  12. Whether the conviction is a felony conviction based on possession or use of cannabis or cannabis products that would not be a felony if the person was convicted during the time of licensure.

III. Disciplinary Guidelines

The Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) specifies the offenses for which the Department may take disciplinary action. Following are samples of the codes and regulation numbers, titles of the offenses and the associated Department determined disciplinary recommendations. When filing an accusation, the Department or Office of the Attorney General are not limited to the violations listed herein. They may also cite any and all additional related statutes and regulations violated not listed below. The following is not a comprehensive list of potential violations and in no way, should limit the Department or the Attorney General’s Office from asserting any relevant and applicable violation. The Department suggests that for cases with multiple violations, suspensions or other disciplines run concurrently. All standard terms of probation as stated in these Disciplinary Guidelines shall be included for all probations.

As used in these Disciplinary Guidelines, statutes and regulations are referenced as follows:

  1. Business and Professions Code: (B&P)

Fine Formula

In instances where the Department allows a fine to be paid, the following method will be used to calculate the fine.

Gross Revenue divided by Number of Days Open During the Preceding 12 Months = Average Daily Sale Amount

50% of the Average Daily Sale Amount multiplied by Number of Days of the Suspension = Potential Fine Amount

The books and records of the licensee shall be kept in such a manner that the gross revenue, average daily sale amount, and/or the loss of profits from commercial cannabis activity that the licensee would have suffered from a suspension can be determined with reasonable accuracy, and such books, records, and information shall be accessible to the Department to make an accurate and complete determination of any fine amount. The fine formula is a guide for calculating a fine amount and is not determinative of any assessed or final fine amount. The Department may in its sole discretion adjust the fine amount against any licensee to any amount within the minimum and maximum fine amounts, or to any amount exceeding the maximum fine amount for each license type. The factors the Department will consider in determining a fine amount include those factors under Section II of the Disciplinary Guidelines.

Minimum and Maximum Fine Amounts

The minimum and maximum fine amount is based on the tier the licensee falls into on the annual license fee schedule listed in 4 CCR § 15014. These fine amounts do not limit or supersede any fine amounts prescribed by statute, if the statutory fines exceed those amounts listed here. For instance, Business and Professions Code section 26160, subsection (f), provides that a licensee shall be subject to a citation and fine of up to thirty thousand dollars per individual violation, for a failure to maintain or provide records as required pursuant to that section. The minimum fine amount for any disciplinary action shall not be less than $1,000.

B. Violations and Fine Amounts for all Cultivation Licenses

The following violations in Table A and Table B below are samples of the codes and regulation numbers, titles of the offenses and the associated Department determined disciplinary recommendations for all cultivation licenses. Violations are designated as “Minor,” “Moderate,” and “Serious.”

“Serious.” Violations that preclude or significantly interfere with enforcement of any state law, or those violations that cause significant false, misleading, or deceptive business practices, potential for significant level of public or environmental harm, or for any violation that is a repeat of a Moderate violation that occurred within a two-year period and that resulted in an administrative civil penalty. All Serious violations are subject to license suspension or revocation. For Table A violations, the proposed fine range is $1,001-$5,000, and for Table B violations, the proposed fine range is $10,001 – $30,000.

“Moderate.” Violations that undermine enforcement of any state law, are likely to cause public or environmental harm, or are a repeat of a Minor violation that occurred within a two- year period and resulted in an administrative civil penalty. For Table A violations, the proposed fine range is $501 – $1,000, and for Table B violations, the proposed fine range is $1,001-$10,000.

“Minor.” Violations that are not likely to have an adverse effect on public safety or environmental health. For Table A violations, the proposed fine range is $100 – $500, and for Table B violations, the proposed fine range is $100 – $1,000. Repeat violations may result in an escalation of violation class.

Table A and Table B shall be used to establish the initial level of severity of the referenced violations and the corresponding penalty range for “Serious,” “Moderate,” and “Minor” violation classes. For violations of other state laws, including state labor laws and related regulations, the Department shall utilize the definitions of “Serious,” “Moderate,” and “Minor” violations included above.

IV. Standard Conditions Of Probation

The protection of the public is the highest priority of the Department. In disciplinary matters where probation has been imposed, the Department believes the conditions of probation will help ensure public protection and allow the probationer the opportunity to demonstrate rehabilitation. The following conditions of probation provide for consumer protection and establish a mechanism to monitor the rehabilitation progress of a probationer. Generally, the Department recommends a minimum of three (3) years’ probation.

Introductory Language and Conditions 1-9 are required as follows:

  1. Obey Laws
    Respondent shall obey all state and local laws. A full and detailed account of any and all violations of law shall be reported by the respondent to the Department in writing within seventy-two (72) hours of occurrence. To permit monitoring of compliance with this condition, respondent shall submit completed fingerprint forms and fingerprint fees within 45 days of the effective date of the decision, unless previously submitted as part of the licensure application process.
    Criminal Court Orders: If respondent, or an owner of the respondent, is under criminal court orders, including probation or parole, and the order is violated, this shall be deemed a violation of these probation conditions, and may result in the filing of an accusation and/or petition to revoke probation.
  2. Submit Written Reports
    Respondent, during the period of probation, shall submit or cause to be submitted such written reports/declarations and verification of actions under penalty of perjury, as required by the Department, but no more frequently than once each calendar quarter. These reports/declarations shall contain statements relative to respondent’s compliance with all the conditions of the Department’s Probation Program.
    Respondent shall immediately execute all release of information forms as may be required by the Department or its representatives.
  3. Report In Person
    Respondent, during the period of probation, through its designated owner or owners, shall appear in person at interviews/meetings as directed by the Department or its representatives.
  4. Comply With Conditions Of Probation
    Respondent shall fully comply with the conditions of probation established by the Department and cooperate with representatives of the Department in its monitoring and investigation of the respondent’s compliance with the Department’s Probation Program. Respondent shall inform the Department in writing within no more than 14 calendar days of any address change. Upon successful completion of probation, respondent’s license shall be fully restored.
  5. Posting Of Sign
    During the period of suspension, respondent shall prominently post a sign or signs, provided by the Department, indicating the beginning and ending dates of the suspension and indicating the reason for the suspension. The sign or signs shall be conspicuously displayed in a location or locations open to and frequented by customers. The location(s) of the sign(s) shall be approved by the Department and shall remain posted during the entire period of actual suspension.
    Additionally, the respondent shall circulate a notice of the conditions of probation to all employees and post the notice in a conspicuous place where notices to employees are posted or available to employees. New employees shall also be provided a copy of the notice of the conditions of probation.
  6. Maintain Valid License
    Respondent shall, at all times while on probation, maintain a current and valid license with the Department, including any period during which suspension or probation is tolled.
  7. Cost Recovery
    Respondent shall pay to the Department costs associated with its investigation and enforcement pursuant to Business and Professions Code Section 26031 in the amount of $ . Respondent shall be permitted to pay these costs in a payment plan approved by the Department, with payments to be completed no later than three months prior to the end of the probation term.
    If respondent has not complied with this condition during the probationary term, and respondent has presented sufficient documentation of good faith efforts to comply with this condition, and if no other conditions have been violated, the Department, in its discretion, may grant an extension of the respondent’s probation period up to one year without further hearing in order to comply with this condition. During the one year extension, all original conditions of probation will apply.
  8. License Surrender
    During respondent’s term of probation, if it ceases business or is otherwise unable to satisfy the conditions of probation, respondent may surrender its license to the Department. The Department reserves the right to evaluate respondent’s request and to exercise its discretion whether to grant the request, or to take any other action deemed appropriate and reasonable under the circumstances, without further hearing. Upon formal acceptance of the tendered license, respondent will no longer be subject to the conditions of probation. Surrender of respondent’s license shall be considered a disciplinary action and shall become a part of respondent’s license history with the Department.
  9. Violation Of Probation
    If a respondent violates the conditions of probation, the Department, after giving the respondent notice and an opportunity to be heard, may set aside the stay order and impose the stayed discipline (revocation/suspension) of the respondent’s license. If during the period of probation, an accusation or petition to revoke probation is filed against respondent’s license, or the Department has served the respondent a notice of intent to set aside the stay, the Department shall have continuing jurisdiction, and the probationary period shall automatically be extended and shall not expire until final resolution of the matter.
