Can you provide some information on event licensing?

You must hold a marijuana event organizer license before you can apply for a temporary marijuana event. The application fee for the marijuana event organizer license is $6,000. The initial licensure fee and the annual renewal fee for a marijuana event organizer is $1,000. Temporary marijuana event licenses do not have an application fee.

Each marijuana event organizer licensed to hold a temporary marijuana event will pay an initial licensure fee that consists of the following:

  • For temporary marijuana events that do not include the sale of marijuana products, a $500 fee for each day of the scheduled event to cover the agency’s enforcement and compliance costs.
  • For temporary marijuana events that include the sale of marijuana products:
    • A $500 fee for each licensee authorized to sell marijuana product at the event to cover the Marijuana Regulatory Agency’s enforcement and compliance costs.
    • A $500 fee for each day of the temporary marijuana event to cover the Marijuana Regulatory Agency’s enforcement and compliance costs.

If a licensee scheduled to attend an event withdraws from the event prior to the first day of the event, the marijuana event organizer may request a refund for that portion of the fees paid to the Marijuana Regulatory Agency to cover the enforcement and compliance costs for that licensee.
