Start, Register, Expand Or Sell A Cannabis Business In Oklahoma
Opportunities have abounded in Oklahoma for the operation of legal cannabis growth and dispensing businesses since medical marijuana became legal in our state in 2018. More recently, the state put a two-year moratorium on the issuing of new cannabis business licenses beginning in August 2022. This moratorium was intended to allow inspectors and regulators to catch up on bureaucratic backlogs. Despite legal limitations, pathways exist to acquire cannabis businesses through legal license transfers.
At Brydie & Associates, PLLC, in Tulsa, we are pleased to help cannabis growers and venders thrive within existing and evolving legal parameters. We established this law firm precisely to enable business owners in our communities to devote their efforts to doing what they do best while our lawyers monitor their legal risks and requirements.
