Oklahoma Regulators Solicit Public Comment on Cannabis License Moratorium

The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority is holding a public comment period for its proposal to make the state’s medical cannabis regulations permanent, including a moratorium on new cannabis business licenses.

Full story after the jump.

Officials with the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) said the agency is looking for public comment about its proposed permanent rule changes for the state’s medical cannabis program, Tulsa World reports.

Interested parties will have until December 15 to submit their feedback about proposed rule changes, which would include making permanent the state’s moratorium on new cannabis business licenses that started earlier this year.

Citizens or individuals with business interests in the industry can submit feedback via omma.ok.gov/rules or by mail to Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority, P.O. Box 262266, Oklahoma City, OK 73126. Feedback can also be provided in person starting at 9 a.m. on Thursday, December 15, at the Oklahoma Capitol Building.

OMMA said businesses that expect to be affected are specifically encouraged to detail the expected revenue losses or cost increases caused by achieving compliance with the new rules.

Following the public comment period, OMMA will compile a summary of any feedback or complaints it receives as well as an explanation of changes (or lack of changes) that it opts to make, the report said.

Last month, the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics announced it was working with law enforcement to target criminal organizations operating within the state’s medical cannabis program.
