The MED Occupational License allows the holder to work within MED licensed Medical and Retail Marijuana facilities or for vendors that provide services to MED Medical and Retail Marijuana business licensees. There are two types of MED Occupational Licenses:
Key Employee: Necessary for employees that make operational or management decisions that directly impact the business. An example of such an employee is a master grower that determines what or how much of a particular strain to produce. (Application fee $250)
Support Employee: Necessary for employees that work within the business but do not make operational decisions. An example of such an employee would be a bud tender - the majority of occupational license holders are in this category. (Application fee $75)
Both license types are good for two years from the date on which the license badge is issued.
If you are interested in obtaining a MED Occupational License please download the Occupational License Application and review it carefully to ensure you are eligible to hold this type of MED license.
All applicants for a new occupational license must come into a MED office to submit their application, have their fingerprints taken and pose for a photo that will be placed on their occupational license badge.
