Marijuana Business Entity Information
We have had multiple municipalities reach out to determine a way to locate marijuana businesses operating under state licenses in their communities in order to verify their compliance with applicable ordinances. While we are working for a more effective long-term solution this upcoming legislative session, there is also a way to obtain this information in the interim.
 
Marijuana Businesses are supposed to be registered with the State Department of Health  AND the OK Bureau of Narcotics. To obtain information from the Dept. of Health you may submit a request for information. Another option is utilizing the OBN Database . Use the municipality and registration type to narrow your search. 
 
Under the “Select Registration Type” dropdown commercial licensees are included under the “Business Distributor” (Dispensary) and “Business Manufacturer” (Grower and Processor) category.
