Background check fees for those who want a Lake County Commercial Cannabis permit are going up. The fee is now $17.00 more because the sheriff’s office is finishing coordinating nationwide FBI background checks and California only checks. So after someone applies, the Sheriff’s office can do an FBI check if warranted. They say in order to not delay the process, they’re applying the rate. Anyone who’s previously had a fingerprint check doesn’t have to pay the increased fee. But if you have to come back for a fingerprint check, the fee will be applied. Right now a Calif. Permit fee is $32.00, so you’d add another $17.00 to FBI on top of that, fingerprints are $20.00 and the processing fee for clearance check, research, and return of approval or denial is $100.
