77. Anyone who in any way hinders an inspector, investigator or police force member in the performance of inspection or investigation functions, deceives an inspector, investigator or police force member by concealment or misrepresentation or refuses to provide information or a document to an inspector that the inspector is entitled to require or examine, or destroys information, a document or a thing relevant to an inspection or investigation, commits an offence.
Anyone who contravenes the first paragraph commits an offence and is liable to a fine of $2,500 to $62,500. However, in the case of a cannabis producer, the offender is liable to a fine of $5,000 to $500,000. Those amounts are doubled for a subsequent offence.
