Auditors lambaste state regulators of medical marijuana

Report doesn’t bode well for process of legalization
Medical marijuana regulation issues

An audit released Monday found several problems with the regulation of medical marijuana.



Permit delays: Four out of 10 licenses were still pending two years after the application.

Background checks: Licenses to employees were issued without the results of fingerprint-based background checks.

Layoffs: State regulators lost so much money they can fund only 15 positions in an office designed for 55.

“Seed-to-sale” fails: The plan to track marijuana plants during all stages of their lives is not being followed because of lack of money.
