FAIRFAX, Okla. (AP) -- The operator of one of Oklahoma's first medicinal marijuana businesses says he's selling all of the seedlings he can produce.

Scott Huffman owns Wild Herb LLC in Fairfax, about 89 miles (143 kilometers) northeast of Oklahoma City. Huffman says the business produces about 40 cannabis seedlings a week and planned to sell seedlings to as many as 30 patients Saturday.

Huffman's business was among the first to apply for a medical marijuana license after Oklahoma voters approved its use in June. Huffman says his business sold its first seedling Sept. 24 and plans to produce about 1,000 seedlings a week by the end of the year.

Licensed medical marijuana patients can possess up to 8 ounces of marijuana, six mature plants and six seedlings.
