US (OK): Changes proposed to medical cannabis industry

Raids on illegal cannabis farms are more common in Oklahoma. Now a group of lawmakers hope a set of bills to change policies will help weed out the bad players. The policies will also benefit those who are following the rules. There are twelve points to this plan and nine of them aim to stop illegal products from getting on dispensary shelves or out of state.  

A few things the group proposes include a required inspection before growers get a full license and mandatory annual inspections. They also suggest removing the no more than two inspections a year cap.  

Other changes base the cost of a license on the size of the grow operation and a requirement to track how much water and energy is used during farming. 

“What we essentially have today is a reflection of what the state question mandated that we put together when it was passed. We had precious little time to get that all set up.” Rep.
