The department may include in each citation an order of abatement and fix a reasonable time for abatement of the violation. The department may, as part of each citation, assess an administrative fine not to exceed five thousand dollars ($5,000) per violation by a licensee and thirty thousand dollars ($30,000) per violation by an unlicensed person. Each day of violation shall constitute a separate violation. In assessing a fine, the department shall give due consideration to the appropriateness of the amount of the fine with respect to factors the department determines to be relevant, including the following:

(1) The gravity of the violation by the licensee or person.

(2) The good faith of the licensee or person.

(3) The history of previous violations.

(b) The sanctions authorized under this section shall be separate from, and in addition to, all other administrative, civil, or criminal remedies.

(c) A citation issued pursuant to this section shall include a provision that notifies the licensee or person that a hearing may be requested to contest the finding of a violation by submitting a written request within 30 days from service of the citation.

If the licensee or person cited fails to submit a written request for a hearing within 30 days from the date of service of the citation, the right to a hearing is waived and the citation shall be deemed a final order of the department and is not subject to review by any court.

(d) After the exhaustion of the administrative and judicial review procedures, the department may apply to the appropriate superior court for a judgment in the amount of the administrative fine and an order compelling the cited person to comply with the order of the department. The application, which shall include a certified copy of the final order of the department, shall constitute a sufficient showing to warrant the issuance of the judgment and order.

(e) The department may recover from the licensee or person who was the subject of the citation costs of investigation and enforcement, which may include reasonable attorney’s fees for the services rendered. If the department recovers costs from a licensee, the department shall recover the costs pursuant to Section 26031.1.

(f) Fines shall be paid within 30 days of service of a citation by the department. Failure to pay a fine assessed pursuant to this section within 30 days of the date of service of the citation, unless the citation is being appealed, shall constitute a separate violation under this division subject to additional action by the department. The department shall not renew or grant a license to a person who was the subject of the fine until that person pays the fine.

(g) All moneys collected pursuant to this section associated with the recovery of investigation and enforcement costs shall be deposited into the Cannabis Control Fund.
