Ohio DCC Drops Annual Marijuana Card Renewal Fee to 1 Cent

The cost of getting a medical marijuana patient or caregiver card in Ohio has been reduced to just one cent by the authorities, which may increase business at the state’s MMJ clinics.

Cincinnati TV station WCPO stated that this price cut will start on March 4. The sale covers both new applications and card renewals.

Moreover, the Division of Cannabis Control (DCC) in Ohio has suggested doing away with the costs associated with MMJ patient and caregiver cards completely.

This recommendation has been sent to Ohio’s Common Sense Initiative, a state organization charged with reviewing and revising laws that affect businesses.

Currently, costs are as follows:

  • Patient card costs $50
  • Caregiver card costs $25
    The DCC has also suggested cutting the processor license renewal fee in half, from $100,000 to $50,000.

The DCC states that the purpose of this charge reduction is to provide a more equitable fee structure while sufficiently supporting the program’s administrative costs.

Legislative obstacles are causing delays in the establishment of a recreational marijuana market, which is why the DCC is taking these steps to expand Ohio’s MMJ program.

However, if legislative differences continue, the director of Ohio Cannabis Control has stated that the organization intends to start licensing adult-use cannabis companies by September 7 at the latest.
