Frequently asked questions
Who is a dispensary agent and what do they do?
A principal officer, board member, employee, or volunteer of a dispensary is a dispensary agent. A dispensary agent is anyone who is responsible for performing tasks in or on behalf of the dispensary.
Why does a dispensary agent need to be fingerprinted?
According to state law, people can’t be dispensary agents if they’ve been convicted of an excluded felony. Anyone applying to be a dispensary agent must submit a full set of fingerprints to the Department as part of an application. The fingerprints may be used by the Department to conduct a criminal records check on the applicant.
If I already have a fingerprint clearance card from another job, why do I need to submit another fingerprint card to be a dispensary agent?
An applicant needs to submit a fingerprint card to ADHS to allow us to check for specific excluded felonies for this law. The list of offenses that would prevent a fingerprint clearance card from being issued to a teacher, child care worker, or other individuals required to obtain these is not the same as the list of “excluded felony offenses” for which dispensary agents are checked.
Therefore, all dispensary agent applicants are required to submit fingerprints as part of the applications for registry identification cards unless their fingerprints were submitted within the previous six months as part of another application to the medical marijuana program
