It’s encouraging to see that OMMA and Director Frye have selected an Advisory Board that includes several 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.”
