The additional rules became active on Monday
The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority continues to stay busy accommodating new licensed businesses, addressing a growing trend of THC “analogs” on dispensary shelves and adapting to new emergency rules now in effect, agency Director Adria Berry said Tuesday.
The additional rules became active on Monday, with an intention to give the authority more power to act and enforce its own rules while also adding clarifications for operators from how long records must be kept to requirements for packaging of pre-rolled joints.
Outside of the emergency rules, which are now in the public comment period and on track to become permanent in the next year, the authority has made 30 hires in the past month, filling 12 inspector positions.
“One of the glaring issues we had was just not getting out and inspecting across the state, that’s really the biggest thing we’ve been hearing,” Berry said.
Berry says in addition to the new hires a renewed focus on inspections and a replacement of the agency’s compliance director are driving the agency forward.
