Medical Marijuana Identification Card Program Fees
All administrative costs for the Medical Marijuana Program at the county level are fee supported.
Proposition 64, Section 5.3 (Amended Health and Safety Code Section 11362.755 November 8, 2016) requires the County Health Department to establish application fees for persons seeking to obtain, renew or replace identification cards.
Proposition 64 removed language authorizing CDPH to collect fees from the County's program. County programs may charge an amount not to exceed one hundred dollars ($100) per Medical Marijuana Identification Card (MMIC) application or renewal, give a fifty percent reduction per card for Medi-Cal eligible applicants, and the fees shall be waived for indigent patients who are eligible for and participate in the County Medical Services Program. The counties have authority to cover their expenses through the application fees; therefore, established fees will vary by county. Please contact your county program to find out what the total cost for a MMIC is.
