- Fingerprint background checks: We’re aware of difficulties applicants are encountering securing the fingerprint background check required for commercial license applications. Since HB 2095 (2023) passed in the spring, OMMA has been working with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and state Attorney General to implement this type of background check. Licensees should continue to submit renewal applications before the license expiration date. We will provide additional guidance on our website and newsletters as more information becomes available.
- SB 913 (2023): SB 913 (2023) took effect April 20, 2023. It requires commercial medical marijuana grower license applicants and licensees to submit a surety bond covering , or proof that the licensee has owned the licensed premises for at least 5 years. Grower licensees submitting renewal applications and applicants for new grow licenses must submit this documentation as part of their application. OMMA will verify the bond or proof of land ownership during the review process of a new or renewal license application. Find a surety bond form and proof of land ownership form on our Bond Requirement page.
- Renewal Applications: Businesses should submit their renewal application between 1 and 60 days before the license expires. As long as the renewal application is submitted on time, the existing license will remain valid while the renewal application is being processed. If a business submits a renewal application on or after the date of expiration, they will be assessed a $500 fee. Licenses are permanently expired if the licensee doesn’t submit a renewal application within 90 days of the license expiration date.
- Moratorium: A moratorium began Aug. 26, 2022, for new dispensary, grower and processor licenses. HB 3208 (2022), passed by the Oklahoma Legislature and signed by the Governor, put the moratorium in place. HB 2095 (2023), also passed by the Legislature and signed by the Governor, extended the moratorium end date to Aug. 1, 2026, unless OMMA's Executive Director determines all pending licensing reviews, inspections or investigations are complete. The moratorium does not affect current licensees, who can apply for renewal.

Foreign Financial Interest Attestation
State law requires growers, processors, dispensaries, labs and transporters to submit a Foreign Financial Interest Attestation form with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control (OBNDD) within 60 days of approval of an OMMA business license application. Pursuant to 63 O.S. § 427.15(B), failure to complete the attestation within 60 days will result in the revocation of your OMMA license.
Visit the OBNDD website to fill out the form. A separate attestation is required for each business license. For example, if your business owns a grower license and a processing license, you must complete an attestation for the grower license and a separate attestation for the processing license, each one within 60 days of OMMA approving the license application.
