Oklahoma’s medical cannabis industry continues to experience growing pains. This time, some processors say they’re frustrated with the state’s new seed-to-sale system. “I can tell you that we have a quarter million worth of inventory that should be out in the market right now,” said Joe Hager, the co-founder of Nature’s Key cannabis company.
About a month ago, an inventory tracking system called seed-to-sale went into effect. The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) and a Florida-based company called Metrc teamed up to implement the tracking and compliance system. “We’ve been eager to see some regulation put in place to allow legitimate businesses like us to function at a high level,” said Hager.
However, he says his company’s products seem to be stuck in the weeds. “It hasn’t been processed through their system, so our business has been held up for the past 26 days. Our patients are starting to call concerned,” said Hager.
Hager told KFOR that nearly a dozen OKC businesses claim to be experiencing similar issues. “We’ve been calling every single day, reaching out to anyone and everyone that can listen to us,” said Hager.
