A DR Z Leaf dispensary in the state of Oklahoma recently filed a suit in an attempt to stop the execution of a cannabis tracking program in the coming weeks. The litigation, which was filed by the medical cannabis operator, also disputes whether the state’s Department of Health is operating ultra vires by implementing the seed to sale system and making it mandatory for more than 10,000 medical marijuana businesses to pay for it. The business filed the suit in the District Court of the Okmulgee County last week and questions the legality of the contract between Metrc, an organization based in Florida, and the state of Oklahoma. The lawsuit demonstrates the strain in the relationship of the state and some medical cannabis businesses over the growing number of regulations and the costs of observing those regulations.
