Cannabis growers all over the state are reporting the first harvests of licensed & legal medicines this week. Many are cutting & curing this weekend. The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority(OMMA) reports the full licensing of 743 retail dispensaries. Oklahoma City has over 180. Tulsa has about 120. and even some tiny 'single intersection' towns now have their own dispensaries.
The Sales tax collections will be enormous as this formerly black market demand gets proper regulation, oversight, and protection of law.
Some noteworthy names are getting in on the new industry. Entities connected to the Dr. Zoellner Eyecare locations in Tulsa are now properly licensed. So is the Parkhill's liquor empire. One group (SGOK3) has 9 separate locations licensed.
Friendly Market (which beat a rap for selling artistic pipes) is also licensed in the Norman area. Car Finders in OKC are evidently becoming cannabis suppliers.
Sooner Politics is publishing an interactive spreadsheet of the announced dispensaries. But this does not mean that the license holders are yet open for regular business. Some opened in November, but many more opened December 1st.
You can scroll to your own city's listings and then find the locations closest to your zip code.
