Cannabis Dispensaries In Oklahoma Say They’re Getting Forced Off Of 7-Eleven Property After Leases Not Renewed

“What we’re hearing from 7-Eleven is they consider this a criminal activity”

Starla Norwood and her husband are registered nurses. They open the Nurses Station at Memorial and Rockwell to help people with health conditions.

“A lot of our patients are in their 50s, 60s, 70s,” Norwood said.

On Tuesday, Starla said she got a call from their property manager saying 7-Eleven Incorporated would not be renewing their lease and they have to be out of their current location by the end of June, which is a 14 day notice.

“What we’re hearing from 7-Eleven is they consider this a criminal activity and money laundering, and there are 300,000 Oklahomans with medical cards, and they seem to think their business is not important,” Norwood said.

The owner of Gayle’s Dispensary got the same phone call Friday.

“There wasn’t any kind of written notice, there wasn’t any kind of attempt at dialogue. There wasn’t any kind of approach to investigate it. It was just like no get out,” Owner Christian Oliver said.

7-Eleven Inc. bought the Oklahoma stores in January.
