Before You Apply, be aware that applying for or holding a MED Employee License and working within the Colorado Regulated Marijuana Space may have adverse Federal Immigration consequences.

In order to work within Colorado’s Regulated Marijuana Industry, you must first apply and be approved for a MED Employee License.  As part of MED’s initiatives to increase efficiencies and customer service, rules effective January 1, 2020, collapse the Key and Support License types into a single category – the Employee License. As of January 1, 2020, the MED will only issue the Employee License and the application fee will be $100.00.
