MED Employee License Renewal - Formerly Support and Key Licenses

We are open for business but our offices are closed to the public until further notice

As state public health officials are calling for “social distancing,” consistent with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, the Marijuana Enforcement Division is adopting measures to minimize exposure between employees and also between employees and the public.

Please be aware that you cannot renew an expired license/badge if you allow your badge to expire you must reapply for a new employee license.


Employee licensees will receive an e-Gov generated receipt upon submission of their application and required fees, Employee should maintain their e-Gov generated receipt until they receive their new badge via mail. To minimize disruptions to employee licensee work schedules, Employee licensees with a valid license who submitted their application and payment via e-Gov and are only waiting to receive their renewed badge via mail may continue to exercise the privileges of their license so long as they maintain their e-Gov generated receipt on their person while working at or for a MED licensed business.

Further, to assist in any need for state or local regulators or local law enforcement to verify a licensee’s identification, such licensees are encouraged to maintain accessible picture identification (e.g. driver license or ID card) when exercising the privileges of their license. The status of a MED license can also be verified by using the “licensee lookup” tool available on the MED’s website.

If the renewal applicant fails to pass the background check you will have an opportunity to request a meeting to resolve any issues. If you choose not to pursue this option you must return your expired badge to the MED and discontinue your employment within Colorado's Marijuana Industry.
