Tulsa Medical Marijuana Businesses Now Required to Complete ‘Certificate of Compliance’ with City of Tulsa

This article was archived on 12/8/2019

Per the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA), as of Aug. 30, 2019, all new medical marijuana business license applicants and existing businesses with medical marijuana licenses up for renewal in Tulsa city limits will be required to complete a Certificate of Compliance with the City of Tulsa Permit Center to submit to OMMA.

A Certificate of Compliance is an OMMA form for municipalities and government agencies to report the status of a licensee’s facility to ensure compliance with local approvals like obtaining building permits, Certificates of Occupancy and spacing verifications.

As of October 2019, there have been more than 700 medical marijuana business licenses issued in Tulsa, and not all licensees have obtained the necessary approvals from the City to legally operate, which will not allow for the completion of OMMA’s Certificate of Compliance.

Medical marijuana businesses with licenses up for renewal and new medical marijuana business license applicants should bring the Certificate of Compliance form to the City of Tulsa Permit Center located on the 4th floor of City Hall, 175 E. 2nd Street. If all conditions of the form are met, the Permit Center will sign off on each. The business may then submit the form to OMMA to show compliance. 

If all conditions are not met, the Permit Center will advise of the steps needed to legally operate a medical marijuana business within Tulsa city limits.

Please Note: The Certificate of Compliance applies to all medical marijuana businesses in Oklahoma. Businesses operating outside Tulsa city limits should coordinate with their corresponding government agency. Businesses in unincorporated areas of Tulsa should contact their respective county as listed by the Oklahoma Tax Commission. Certificate of Compliance refers only to businesses and not to patient licenses.
