The new Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority is ready to answer questions on the licensing and implementation of medical marijuana. The following statement was released Monday:
The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority has established a call center to answer questions about patient and business application processing and requirements for obtaining medical marijuana licenses.
A new phone number, (405) 522-6662, has been established to get information about the program. The OMMA call center is now available to answer questions from prospective patients, caregivers and businesses. Hours will be Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Staff will be trained to provide information on application instructions and licensure processes and timeframes.
“We have had a number of questions about requirements since the emergency rules were updated earlier this month and we now have staff in place to help interested parties understand the application process,” said OMMA project manager Buffy Heater. “This is another benchmark for establishing a new program and OMMA is pleased to begin providing this service to Oklahomans who are interested in obtaining a medical marijuana license.”
The online application system for licenses will be available on August 25 at 10 a.m. and applications can be submitted at that time for patient, caregiver, and business licenses.
Questions about the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority or the application process can also be directed to OMMA@ok.gov.
