With the passage of Oklahoma's State Question 788, Medical Marijuana became a reality for thousands of patients. Within months the first real cannabis medicine was cultivated and harvested. Dispensaries opened and product was put in consumers hands.
While the medicine was legal as of October 26th, the growers were waiting for optimal harvesting conditions, which mostly occurred after Thanksgiving.
So most licensed dispensaries waited until December to officially open and dispense to patients.
Today is January 15th. This is the day that monthly commerce reporting for December is due, to the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority. Melissa Miller of the OMMA explains that these reports are mandatory even if a licensed Medical Marijuana Business (MMB) has no sales to report or even product acquired for future sales.
We asked if these reports will be made public, or at least the accumulative numbers released. We're still waiting for that answer.
But the OMMA has been very forthcoming with licensing data. They provide weekly status data, announcing totals and breaking down each category.
