Transporter Agent License

Quick Links


Overview

A medical marijuana commercial transporter agent license is required for agents, employees, officers, or owners of a commercial transporter, grower, processor, or dispensary to transport medical marijuana, medical marijuana concentrate, or medical marijuana products.

Transporter agent licenses allow a business holding a transporter license to transport medical marijuana and medical marijuana products to other commercial licensees via its transporter agents. Transporter agents must submit an employment verification form verifying their employment with the licensed transporter when applying for a transporter agent license.

Licensed commercial transporter agents must comply with Title 63 O.S. § 420 et seq. and the Oklahoma Administrative Code (OAC) 442:10. Licenses are valid for one year, unless the license is deactivated by the business licensee employing the transporter agent, voluntarily surrendered, or revoked by the Authority. Transporter agent licenses shall not extend beyond the expiration, surrender, or revocation of the business license employing the transporter agent.

Commercial licensees must notify OMMA within 14 days when a transporter agent no longer works for them as an agent.

The nonrefundable application fee is $25 plus a $2.61 credit card processing fee. A separate application and fee is required for each agent license.

OMMA processes transporter agent license applications within 30 business days.

FAQs

A transporter license is issued simultaneously with commercial grower, processor, dispensary and laboratory licenses. It allows those licensees, through their licensed transport agents, to transport their own medical marijuana and medical marijuana products. Commercial licensees use their business account to apply on behalf of their employees for OMMA-issued transporter agent licenses. Anyone driving a vehicle transporting products between licensed businesses must have a transporter license and transporter agent license identification card.

A commercial transporter license is a standalone license for a business that transports medical marijuana and/or medical marijuana products between licensed medical marijuana businesses, through their licensed transportation agents. Transporters do not grow, process or sell their own medical marijuana. Transporter licenses are similar, but issued simultaneously with grower, processor and dispensary licenses for those licensees to transport their own products (through their licensed transportation agents).

If approved for your license, OMMA will issue a transporter agent identification card to carry with you any time you are transporting medical marijuana.

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.
