Change in designated dispensing organization.
Nothing contained in this Act shall be construed to prohibit a dispensing organization registered in this State from filling or refilling a valid written certification for medical cannabis that is on file with the Department of Public Health and the designation has been transferred from one dispensing organization to another under this Act upon the following conditions and exceptions:
(1) Prior to dispensing medical cannabis under any
written certification and the requirements of this Act, the dispensing organization agent shall:
(A) advise the patient that the designated
dispensing organization on file with the Department of Public Health must be changed before he or she will be able to dispense any quantity of medical cannabis;
(B) determine that the patient is registered and
in compliance with the Department of Public Health under the requirements of this Act;
(C) notify the dispensing organization designated
by the registered qualifying patient that the registered qualifying patient is changing his or her designation and the patient may no longer purchase medical cannabis at the original dispensing organization; and

patient's change in designation and receive confirmation from the Department of Public Health that it has updated the registered qualifying patient database.
(2) The Department of Public Health's electronically
accessible database created under this Act shall maintain a registered qualified patient's designated dispensary information.

more frequently or in larger amounts than permitted under this Act.
