New Education Requirements for Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Employees
Will Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Business Employees Be Required to Complete Education Requirements?
Will medical marijuana business employees be required to complete the education requirements? I’m Ope Adegbuyi, a medical marijuana business attorney in Tulsa.
Beginning January 1st, 2024, the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority will require employees of a medical marijuana business licensee to apply for and receive a credential authorizing the employee to work in the licensed medical marijuana business. Beginning January 2025, to be eligible for such credential, employees of medical marijuana dispensaries shall comply with the education and continuing education requirements and shall meet all other requirements established by law or rule for employees of the medical marijuana business licensee.
What Does This Mean for Employees?
So this means that beginning 2024, January 1st, they would have that requirement that all licensees, all employees already working in a business, would have to complete and receive that credential authorizing them to be employees to work there. And then beginning 2025, those employees would have to comply with the continuing education.
Therefore, employees will need to obtain a new credential every year to ensure their eligibility for employment in a medical marijuana business, specifically a dispensary. It is important to note that this requirement only applies to dispensary employees and not employees of other types of medical marijuana businesses.
