The Peak Dispensary, an Oklahoma City, OK based chain of medical cannabis dispensaries, is excited to announce the company’s CEO, Blake Cantrell, has been appointed to OMMA’s Food Safety Standards Board. FSSB, more often referred to as the OMMA Advisory Board, is comprised of state officials, experts, and OMMA-licensed cannabis industry representatives.
The OMMA Advisory Board is appointed by Oklahoma Dept. of Health Commissioner Lance Frye, along with input and recommendations from OMMA Director Williams. The Advisory Board plays a key role in providing recommendations and insight to OMMA officials regarding rules governing the cannabis industry. During the rulemaking process, the Advisory Board gives crucial input as to how the proposed OMMA rules will – or won’t – achieve their intended objectives in real-world application.
On the Board, Mr. Cantrell will have the opportunity to revise and make suggestions on regulations that directly affect Oklahoma’s cannabis industry. “I’m honored and excited to have been appointed to the OMMA Advisory Board,” said Mr. Cantrell. “OMMA receiving input from actively operating cannabis business owners during rulemaking is absolutely essential. It’s encouraging that OMMA selected an Advisory Board which includes cannabis-industry professionals. I am truly humbled by this opportunity to help shape a better regulatory framework for our industry and for our state. With the right structure, I’m confident that Oklahoma can stay on the leading edge of what will ultimately be a multi-billion dollar industry in the near future.”
