Heloo, my name is Oklahoma medical marijuana business attorney Ope Adegbuyi. HB 2282 is a bill that affects medical marijuana businesses in Oklahoma. According to the OMMA, the director of the OMMA has the power to immediately suspend a registration without notice or hearing in cases where there is imminent danger to public health or safety. The suspension will continue until the conclusion of administrative proceedings, including judicial review unless it is withdrawn by the director or dissolved by a court of competent jurisdiction.
What Happens During Suspension?
During the suspension, the director may order the registrant to immediately seize and desist operations. The order is effective immediately upon issuance and any person to whom the order is directed must comply immediately with the provisions of the order. The director may also assess a penalty not to exceed $10,000 per day of non-compliance with the order.
How Can You Defend Your Business?
If you receive an order of suspension, you have the right to a hearing within 30 days of the issuance of the order. At the hearing, you can explain the situation and see if it is possible to restore your license or hold up the suspension and revocation.
