A new state law, HB 2179 (2022) amended by SB 813 (2023), creates new license application fees for growers, processors and dispensaries. These changes are codified at 63 O.S. § 427.14. The new fees are effective for applications submitted on or after June 1, 2023. Find more information below about the fee for each application type.
Grower license application fees are calculated by acreage for outdoor grows, and by canopy size for indoor, greenhouse or light deprivation grows. For definitions of “canopy,” “greenhouse” and “light deprivation,” please refer to 63 O.S. § 427.14 (D)(2)(d) in Oklahoma state statutes.
The initial, nonrefundable fee for a medical marijuana commercial grower license shall be calculated based upon the total amount of square feet of canopy or acres the grower estimates will be harvested, transferred, or sold for the year. The annual, nonrefundable license fee shall be based upon the total amount of square feet of canopy or acres harvested, transferred, or sold by the grower during the previous 12 months.
