The Status of Senate Bill 711
Now that this bill has gotten approval from the North Carolina Judiciary Committee and the Senate Finance committee, it will now move onto the Health Care committee! If approved, SB 711 will move onto the last committee: Rules and Operations.
The main discussion in the Finance committee meeting was about the licensing fees and potential revenue projections. The sponsors indicated that they and the legislative staff will continue to review those projections.
The Finance committee will require that the medical marijuana program be self-sustaining from a revenue perspective. This will follow the initial money to set up the system.
The funding for this program would come from license fees and a monthly fee equal to 10% of the gross income from the locations that sell medical cannabis products.
Senate Bill 711 will move on to the Health Care committee. There is no set date for when this meeting will happen. If approved, it will go to the Rules and Operations committee. Senator Rabon fully supports this bill and happens to be the chairman of this committee!
