Oklahoma has become the hotbed of marijuana trafficking according to a startling report by state narcotics department officials, raising concerns amongst law enforcement agencies across the region.

With an influx in illegal activities comes an increase in risk and it appears Oklahoma is being thrust into this spotlight.

Mark Woodward, with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, said "We've talked to our law enforcement partners around the United States, especially many on the East Coast who say Oklahoma is their No. 1 spot for black market marijuana that is showing up in their states."

Oklahoma finds itself in an uncomfortable spotlight as the state's narcotics department reveals it has become a major hub for illegal marijuana trafficking.

Oklahoma is facing an influx of illegal marijuana intercepted by police officers during traffic stops and investigations. Woodward has stressed the severity, claiming that more black market cannabis than any other state can be traced back to local farms in Oklahoma.

According to the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, Oklahoma cannabis is being trafficked at unprecedented levels along the eastern seaboard from the bustling city of New York down to the sandy beaches in Florida and even further abroad; with criminal syndicates linked with China, Bulgaria, and Russia involved.

Due to Oklahoma's incredibly affordable land and cannabis licenses and the state boasting some of America's most lenient industry regulations, it has become a haven for criminal organizations.

Woodward goes on to say "We have probably close to 2,000 farms that are under investigation for obtaining their license by fraud or moving product from that farm to the black market out of state."

OBN Investigates, what they call "Ghost Owner" a scheme growing in the Oklahoma cannabis industry. Reports from the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics suggest an unsettling trend gaining traction across cannabis farms; individuals and groups are being paid to be 75% owners, despite having no say or role in management.

In 2022 alone, the bureau has cracked down on a staggering 300K illegally cultivated plants and shuttered over 100 marijuana farms. The sheer size of these operations is sure to shock many.
