What is the process once the WSLCB summarily orders marijuana, usable marijuana, marijuana concentrates, or marijuana-infused products of a marijuana licensee to be destroyed?

(1) The WSLCB may issue an order to summarily destroy marijuana, usable marijuana, marijuana concentrates, or marijuana-infused products after the WSLCB's enforcement division has completed a preliminary staff investigation of the violation and upon a determination that immediate destruction of marijuana, usable marijuana, marijuana concentrates, or marijuana-infused products is necessary for the protection or preservation of the public health, safety, or welfare.
(2) Destruction of any marijuana, usable marijuana, marijuana concentrates, or marijuana-infused products under this provision shall take effect immediately upon personal service on the licensee or employee thereof of the summary destruction order unless otherwise provided in the order.
(3) When a license has been issued a summary destruction order by the WSLCB, an adjudicative proceeding for the associated violation or other action must be promptly instituted before an administrative law judge assigned by the office of administrative hearings. If a request for an administrative hearing is timely filed by the licensee, then a hearing shall be held within ninety days of the effective date of the summary destruction ordered by the WSLCB.
