The renewal fees for marijuana Grower, Excess marijuana Grower, and marijuana Processor licenses will be determined based on the gross weight transferred by the licensee.

The renewal fees for marijuana Retailers and marijuana Microbusiness licenses will be determined based on the gross retail sales by the licensee.

The renewal fee for a marijuana Secure Transporter license will be determined based on the net weight transported by the licensee.

The renewal fee for marijuana safety compliance facilities will be determined based on the number of tests completed by the licensee.

The MRA will determine whether the licensee is in the top third, middle third, or bottom third in that fiscal year compared against all other licensees for the license held. The licensee will then pay the corresponding fee.
