Implementation deadline for state's marijuana seed-to-sale tracking program pushed to summer amid court battle

OKMULGEE — The state of Oklahoma's contract with a Florida-based cannabis "seed-to-sale" tracking company could change after an Okmulgee County judge signed an order that temporarily stops enforcement of a requirement that businesses fully integrate with the platform.

A copy of the order, signed Thursday, states that the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority and Okmulgee-based processor Dr.

Z Leaf agreed "in the interest of judicial economy" to halt a rule for 60 days that would have required businesses to use the services of Metrc.

Before the OMMA announced an agreement had been reached Wednesday evening, businesses would have had to fully integrate their information into Metrc's platform by Friday.

The order comes about a week after Tulsa attorney Ron Durbin filed suit on behalf of Beau Zoellner, who operates Dr.

Z Leaf in Okmulgee County.

Durbin argued the OMMA wrongly gave Metrc a monopoly over the practice when it signed a contract with the organization last year, and said he has yet to find a legal requirement that businesses use a singular company to provide seed-to-sale tracking services.

"That is not the way our state government is supposed to work," Durbin said Thursday after exiting the Okmulgee County courthouse.

"Government is supposed to work with their citizens, work with the businesses that they're regulating, work with the 380,000 patients that we have in this state, to make it a better program.

"Special Judge Pandee Ramirez authorized the order during a brief in-chambers hearing and said she would hear more information in the case June 29.
