This bill requires that cannabis businesses be paid monetary relief and assistance out of either the Medical Use of Cannabis Fund or the Adult Use Cannabis Public Health and
42 Safety and Municipal Opt-in Fund in an amount equal to relief that was provided to other
43 businesses in the State but not the cannabis businesses because they were engaged in a
44 cannabis-related business activity, including energy relief for electricity costs provided to
45 businesses in the State in 2022 and 2023. This bill also clarifies that the sales tax exemption
46 for products used in commercial agriculture production also applies to the production of
47 cannabis and waives the annual registration fee for a caregiver if in the prior year the
48 caregiver has been determined compliant with the laws and rules of the medical cannabis
49 provisions upon inspection by the Department of Health and Human Services.
