Arizona Revised Statutes Section 36-2808 – Notifications to department; civil penalty
A. A registered qualifying patient shall notify the department within ten days of any change in the registered qualifying patient’s name, address, designated caregiver or preference regarding who may cultivate marijuana for the registered qualifying patient or if the registered qualifying patient ceases to have his debilitating medical condition.
B. A registered designated caregiver or nonprofit medical marijuana dispensary agent shall notify the department within ten days of any change in his name or address.
C. When a cardholder notifies the department of any changes listed in subsection A but remains eligible under this chapter, the department shall issue the cardholder a new registry identification card with new random 20-digit alphanumeric identification numbers within ten days of receiving the updated information and a ten-dollar fee. If the person notifying the department is a registered qualifying patient, the department shall also issue his registered designated caregiver, if any, a new registry identification card within ten days of receiving the updated information.
D. If the registered qualifying patient’s certifying physician notifies the department in writing that either the registered qualifying patient has ceased to suffer from a debilitating medical condition or that the physician no longer believes the patient would receive therapeutic or palliative benefit from the medical use of marijuana, the card is void upon notification by the department to the qualifying patient.
E. When a registered qualifying patient ceases to be a registered qualifying patient or changes registered designated caregiver, the department shall promptly notify the former designated caregiver that his duties and rights under this chapter as to that qualifying patient expire fifteen days after notification by the department is sent.
F. A registered qualifying patient, designated caregiver or nonprofit medical marijuana dispensary agent who fails to comply with subsection A or B is subject to a civil penalty of not more than one hundred fifty dollars.
