Section 3796.15 | Enforcement by state board of pharmacy.


(A) The division of marijuana control shall enforce this chapter, or cause it to be enforced. If the division has information that this chapter 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 division to enforce minor violations if the division determines that the public interest is adequately served by a notice or warning to the alleged offender.

(C) If the division 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 division 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 division of marijuana control 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 division, during the pendency of the appeal, to sell medical marijuana that is perishable. The division shall deposit the proceeds of the sale with the court.
