Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority Prepares for New Licensing Software

OKLAHOMA:  The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) will soon begin using a new licensing software provider, Thentia Cloud for Government (“Thentia”). The regulatory agency plans to make the switch on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022. 

The current software system, Complia, has been in place since OMMA began accepting applications in August 2018. All OMMA stakeholders, including patients, businesses and staff, will positively benefit from this new system.

“We are excited to make the switch to Thentia,” said Adria Berry, OMMA Executive Director. “The user-friendly applicant portals are designed to reduce wait times by minimizing opportunities for errors. Our license processing teams have already made great strides on turnaround times over the past several months, but this new software will enable them to navigate documents and applications more efficiently. An added bonus is that many of the agencies we work closely with, including OBNDD, also use Thentia. Having the same software will make information sharing easier.”

The last day current users will be able to update their account and submit applications will be Sunday, Jan. 9. Incomplete applications will not be transferred from Complia to Thentia. Beginning Monday, Jan. 10, Complia will be accessible in a view-only mode for current account holders and OMMA staff during the eight-day data migration process. As a result, individuals who submit an application prior to Jan. 10 should anticipate a delay in turnaround times. The OMMA is legally obligated to approve, reject, or deny patient applications within 14 business days of submission and commercial applications within 90 business days of submission.
