US (OK): Cannabis business fights 'ghost owner' lawsuit after $1M investment to convert chicken farm

An Oklahoma County judge granted a temporary injunction in favor of a medical cannabis business whose owner said authorities wrongly deactivated his license amid busts of “ghost owner” enterprises.

The judge found that the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority “acted contrary to law” when it accepted Kathy Windler’s surrender of interest in numerous business licenses as grounds to deactivate a license belonging to plaintiff John Wah Ng, a Delaware County grower.

“Kathy Windler did not comply with OMMA and (Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control) regulations governing license/registration surrender in her attempt to surrender the licenses,” the Sept. 10 order from District Judge Don Andrews states.
The judge added: “An attempt to surrender an OMMA and/or OBNDD license made without full compliance with the relevant OMMA and OBNDD regulations is a nullity.”
