Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority set to enforce laboratory testing

The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority is finally ready to enforce laboratory testing months after it became legal.

Oklahoma Medical Marijuana officials said in April that they would require medical marijuana products sold by a processor or grower to be tested by a licensed laboratory.

“All medical marijuana products had required testing for a very long time now, but the requirement that it goes to a lab that’s licensed by OMMA is a new enforcement,” said Kelly Williams, deputy director of the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority.

Williams said the OMMA extended that deadline from April to July to ensure there were enough labs meeting the licensing and accreditation requirements.

Maine marijuana regulators have created new rules about sample collections that are expected to make the state's testing system less burdensome.

The Maine Office of Marijuana Policy said the state now has the ability to license and regulate sample collectors. The collectors will be workers who collect samples of marijuana and marijuana products for testing on behalf of marijuana testing facilities and other adult marijuana use establishments, the office said.
