In June 2018, Oklahoma became the 30th U.S. state to legalize medical marijuana under SQ 788. Residents over 18 with a physician's recommendation can apply for a medical card to buy medical marijuana from licensed dispensaries, with exceptions for non-residents and minors.
The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) oversees licensing, and the market has grown rapidly since August 2018, with over 7,300 business licenses issued, including 1,800+ dispensaries. More than 5% of the state's population are registered medical marijuana patients.
In September 2020, OMMA partnered with Metrc for seed-to-sale tracking, but implementation was delayed. On Feb 25, 2022, an agreement was reached for full compliance by May 26, 2022, to improve cannabis business operations. Metrc's implementation has been crucial in combating illicit marijuana businesses. Dispensaries had urged OMMA to move forward with it for enhanced compliance and safety.
Oklahoma's cannabis landscape has seen significant changes in recent years, making it crucial for both residents and businesses to stay informed and compliant with evolving cannabis regulations.
