Division of Cannabis Control Patient Fee Eliminated Effective May 15

Beginning Wednesday, May 15, the Ohio Division of Cannabis Control (“DCC” or “Division”) will eliminate the medical marijuana patient and caregiver registration fee.

Previously, patients paid $50 annually while caregivers paid $25, until the Division reduced the fee to one cent on March 4. The Division is pleased to provide further relief to patients with the full elimination of the fee.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Beginning May 15, patients and caregivers will no longer need to submit payment in the Medical Marijuana Patient & Caregiver Registry (Registry) when activating a new registration or renewing an existing registration.
  • To activate or renew a registration, the patient or caregiver must access the Registry, confirm the information provided is correct, and select “Activate Card” or “Renew Card.” 
  • More information about activating or renewing a patient or caregiver registration, including registering with veteran or indigent status, can be found at www.com.ohio.gov/mmcppatients.
