Upcoming medical marijuana regulations to hold dispensaries accountable, CEO says – KOCO Oklahoma City


New medical marijuana rules will take effect in Oklahoma next month.Officials told KOCO 5 that the majority of the new regulations will help hold dispensaries more accountable for what they’re selling and to whom.”There’s gonna be a lot more hoops that we have to jump through as a business to operate legally,” said Corbin Wyatt, CEO of The Peake Plaza Dispensary. Those hoops include lab testing, labeling and bar-coding all products. With the arrest of Jeffery Peregrino, who was caught by undercover agents selling meth out of his dispensary in Spiro, Wyatt thinks the changes are fair and necessary.”You want to have a structured approach to this that allows the cannabis industry to still thrive, as it has so far, while allowing the government to regulate it in a way that protects patients,” Wyatt said. The new regulations also will allow law enforcement to access information on a person’s medical marijuana card.”I think it will be beneficial for patients to have it to where they are able to be verified as a patient on the spot,” Wyatt said.Other changes will affect short-term licensing and will lower the application fees for veterans who have 100% disability ratings. The changes are scheduled to go into effect Aug. 29.
