Are fingerprints required as part of the background check?

Yes, fingerprints are required. Until further notice, fingerprint cards must be submitted via U.S. mail to: MSDH Fingerprint Unit, 143B Lefleur’s Square Jackson, MS 39211. In addition to the fee associated with the work permit itself, there is an additional $50.00 fee that must be paid to process the fingerprint-based background check. This additional fee must be paid directly to the MSDH Fingerprint Unit, not the Medical Cannabis Program.
