US (CA): California growers seek cheaper mixed-light license fees

A group of cannabis industry executives representing hundreds of California cannabis growers are urging state regulators to overhaul current licensing fees, arguing they create unsustainable costs for growers who rely on light-deprivation cultivation practices.

Under current regulations, a license for a small outdoor cannabis grower costs $4,820 per year.

By comparison, a Tier 1 mixed-light license – for growers who rely on natural light, light deprivation or perhaps a combination of natural and artificial lighting – costs more than double that amount, at $11,800 annually.

Both licenses include the cost of RFID tags, which are used to tag plants and track them through the state’s Metrc seed-to-sale traceability system.

Mixed-light growers employ light deprivation to spur cannabis plants to start the flowering process.
