Application Fees

After you submit your application, DCR will issue you an invoice to pay the required application fees, which must be paid before your application is processed.

An annual license application is currently $8,059 per activity type (i.e. if you are applying for manufacturing, cultivation and distribution, you will have to pay three application fees for a total of $24,177).

Additionally, you must pay a Los Angeles Fire Department Cannabis Unit inspection fee of $918 per activity type (LAFD charges an additional $216 per hour for inspections exceeding 4 hours).

NOTE: Certain Tier 1 Social Equity Applicants may be eligible for a fee deferral. Information about the fee deferral will be provided as it becomes available.
