Nothing in the terms of this chapter shall preclude the right of the President to suspend or revoke the license of the licensee, as follows:
(A) The President may temporarily suspend any license issued under the terms of this chapter when he or she has reason to believe that the continued operation of a particular licensed premises will immediately threaten the welfare of the community or create an imminent danger of violation of applicable law. In such case, he or she may, upon the issuance of a written order stating the reason for such determination, and without notice or hearing, order the licensed premises closed for not more than seven days; provided, that the licensee shall be given an opportunity to be heard in a public hearing during the seven-day period, and further provided that if such licensee shall also be engaged in the conduct of other business on the licensed premises, such order shall not be applicable to such other businesses.
(B) The President may suspend or revoke any license issued under the terms of this chapter upon ten days notice to the licensee of the time and place of a public hearing, and a public hearing at which the licensee may appear and present evidence, if the President determines upon such hearing that the licensee has failed or refused to comply with the terms of this chapter, has failed or refused to comply with other law applicable to the business of operating an adult use, has knowingly permitted the failure of any manager or employee on the premises to comply with the terms of this chapter or with other law applicable to the business of operating an adult use, has knowingly furnished false or misleading information on any application required for any license under this section or has suffered or caused another to furnish or withhold such information on his or her behalf, or has been convicted by a court of competent jurisdiction of a violation of any provision of this section.
