Annual Fees
Each license or certification shall be charged an annual fee once the license or certification is granted. The first annual fee will be due thirty (30) days after a license or certification is issued and shall be due annually on that same date as long as the license or certification remains valid, except for in the case of microbusinesses whose first annual fee will be due on the anniversary of their licensure.

Change Request Fees
Change Request fees are charged when a licensee submits a business change application per 19 CSR 100-1.100(2) and 19 CSR 100-1.100(3) for marijuana and medical licensees, respectively. Licensees should remit business change application administrative and processing fees during the online application submission process.

New Application Fees
New Application fees are due at time of application submission.

Applications for cultivation, manufacturing, testing, and dispensary licenses and certifications are currently closed. At such time that new applications are to be accepted for these license and certification types, the Department will post notice on this website and the applicable fee would apply.

Renewal Fees
Most marijuana and medical licenses and certifications are valid for three years. Every third year, licensees must submit an application for license renewal, along with the accompanying fee(s), which must be submitted at least 90 days prior to expiration, but no sooner than 30 days. Licensees will receive a notice from the online registry portal reminding them when renewal applications and associated fees are due. Renewal applications and fees are not required for seed-to-sale certifications, which have no expiration. Please note, in years that a license or certification renewal is due, remittance of the annual fee is still required.

Patient and Caregiver identification cards; as well as Patient, Caregiver and Consumer Personal cultivation authorization identification cards are valid for three years. Department issued identification card (ID card) holders must submit an application for ID card renewal, along with the accompanying fee prior to expiration of the ID card. Renewal applications can be submitted sixty (60) days prior to, and at least thirty (days) before the ID card expiration date.
