3796.15 Enforcement by state board of pharmacy.

(A) The state board of pharmacy shall enforce, or cause to be enforced, sections 3796.08. 3796.10. 3796.20. 3796.22. and 3796.23 of the Revised Code. If it has information that any provision of those sections or any rule adopted under this chapter has been violated, it shall investigate the matter and take any action as it considers appropriate.

(B) Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to require the state board of pharmacy to enforce minor violations if the board determines that the public interest is adequately served by a notice or warning to the alleged offender.

(C) If the board suspends, revokes, or refuses to renew any license or registration issued under this chapter and determines that there is clear and convincing evidence of a danger of immediate and serious harm to any person, the board may place under seal all medical marijuana owned by or in the possession, custody, or control of the affected license holder or registrant. Except as provided in this division, the board shall not dispose of the medical marijuana sealed under this division until the license holder or registrant exhausts all of the holder's or registrant's appeal rights under Chapter 119. of the Revised Code. The court involved in such an appeal may order the board, during the pendency of the appeal, to sell medical marijuana that is perishable. The board shall deposit the proceeds of the sale with the court.
