Dispensary License Renewal Process

All current dispensary licenses expire on December 31, 2017. Every licensed dispensary will be required to renew their license for the 2018 calendar year. The Dispensary License renewal process will open on Tuesday October 10th. To begin the process, log-in to your dispensary account by clicking the log-in button. If you cannot remember your user name or password click on the “Forgot UserName” and/or “Forgot Password” links. An email will be sent to the email you registered with and will allow you to retrieve your user name – which cannot be changed – and reset your password. If you can’t remember your registration email, contact Melodye Serino at Melodye.Serino@santacruzcounty.us; or 831-454-3412.
