Hi, my name is Tulsa marijuana business lawyer Ope Adegbuyi. The introduction of Senate Bill 913 has caused a lot of confusion among grow businesses in Oklahoma. Many business owners who have already submitted their OMMA applications are now wondering how the new bill affects them. The truth is, if you have already submitted your application and you don’t have the surety bond requirement, your application will be rejected by the OMMA.
The requirement for a surety bond or proof of land ownership is aimed at ensuring that only serious and committed businesses are licensed to grow, process, and sell marijuana in Oklahoma. A bond is a form of insurance that guarantees that the grower will comply with all the rules and regulations governing the medical marijuana industry in the state.
If your application has been rejected because you didn’t meet the requirements of Senate Bill 913, you will need to reapply and include the surety bond or proof of land ownership. It’s important to note that even if you submitted your application before the bill was passed, you are still required to comply with its provisions.
What You Need to Do Now
If you are a grow business owner who has already submitted an OMMA application, it’s important to check if you have met the requirements of Senate Bill 913. If you haven’t, you need to act fast and include the surety bond or proof of land ownership in your application before submitting it to OMMA.
Remember, the rejection of your application can cause significant delays and additional costs, so it’s important to ensure that you comply with all the rules and regulations governing the medical marijuana industry in Oklahoma.
