N.Y. Cannabis Law Section 15
Disposition of moneys received for license fees

The board shall establish a scale of application, licensing, and renewal fees, based upon the cost of enforcing this chapter and the size of the cannabis business being licensed, as follows:


The board shall charge each registered organization, licensee and permittee a registration, licensure or permit fee, and renewal fee, as applicable. The fees may vary depending upon the nature and scope of the different registration, licensure and permit activities.


The total fees assessed pursuant to this chapter shall be set at an amount that will generate sufficient total revenue to, at a minimum, fully cover the total costs of administering this chapter.


All registration and licensure fees shall be set on a scaled basis by the board, dependent on the size and capacity of the business and for social and economic equity applicants such fees may be assessed to accomplish the goals of this chapter.


The board shall deposit all fees collected in the New York state cannabis revenue fund established pursuant to State Finance Law § 99-II (New York state cannabis revenue fund)section ninety-nine-ii of the state finance law.
