Purpose/Objective of Rule The primary purpose necessitating the revision and additions to 1 CCR 212-2 on an emergency basis is to help the State Licensing Authority effectively regulate the retail marijuana industry. As of July 1, 2014, the State Licensing Authority began to accept new applications for new retail marijuana businesses. 12-43.4-104(1)(b)(II), C.R.S. Accordingly, as of October 1, 2014, there will be new retail-only licensees that are not, and have never been, affiliated with medical marijuana businesses. These same rules are also in the midst of the permanent rulemaking process. However, the permanent rules will not be effective before October 1st. Consequently, these rules are needed on a temporary, emergency basis in order to ensure the regulated community has clear guidance about the governing regulations. If these rules were not adopted, there would be a regulatory gap between October 1st and the effective date of the permanent rules. Adoption of these rules will clarify the requirements related to retail occupational licensees.
