Key considerations for OBN registration in Oklahoma.
OBN Registration Considerations
What are some important considerations with regard to the OBN registrations? I am Tulsa Medical Marijuana Business Attorney Ope Adegbuyi. According to the OBNDD, every person who manufactures, distributes, dispenses, prescribes, administers, or uses for scientific purposes any controlled dangerous substance within or into this state shall obtain a registration issued by the Director of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Narcotics, which is the OBN, in accordance with the rules that are promulgated by the Director.
So it would be good to familiarize yourself with the rules. Some of these rules include:
- You must have an active license with the appropriate Oklahoma licensing authority prior to submitting your application.
- You must list a physical Oklahoma business address in your application.
The OBN does not accept applications with only a post office box or an R&R number. However, if you actually do not have a physical address, then you may provide the post office box or R&R number, but you would also have to include directions to your business location. If you do not have a primary business location in Oklahoma but will be doing relief work or local tenants in Oklahoma, then you may provide your out-of-state address, but you must include an explanation letter along with your application.
Additionally, note that all registrations expire on October 31st. However, new registrations approved prior to July 1st will expire on October 31st of the same year, while registrations approved after July 1st will expire the following year, specifically on October 31st of the following year.
