    § 4474h. Patient designation of dispensary

    (a) A registered patient or his or her caregiver may obtain cannabis only from the patient's designated dispensary and may designate only one dispensary. A registered patient who wishes to change his or her dispensary shall notify the Department in writing on a form issued by the Department and shall submit with the form a fee of $25.00. The Department shall issue a new identification card to the registered patient within 30 days of receiving the notification of change in dispensary. The registered patient's previous identification card shall expire at the time the new identification card takes effect. A registered patient shall submit his or her expired identification card to the Department within 30 days of expiration. A registered patient shall not change his or her designated dispensary more than once in any 30-day period.

    (b) The Department of Public Safety shall track the number of registered patients who have designated each dispensary. The Department shall issue a monthly written statement to the dispensary identifying the number of registered patients who have designated that dispensary and the Registry identification numbers of each patient and each patient's designated caregiver, if any.

    (c) In addition to the monthly reports, the Department of Public Safety shall provide written notice to a dispensary whenever any of the following events occurs:

    (1) a qualifying patient designates the dispensary to serve his or her needs under this subchapter;

    (2) an existing registered patient revokes the designation of the dispensary because he or she has designated a different dispensary; or

    (3) a registered patient who has designated the dispensary loses his or her status as a registered patient under this subchapter. (Added 2011, No. 65, § 1, eff.
