Licence holders generally remain anonymous. The Office of Drug Control will not disclose details of individual licence holders, such as names and jurisdictions, unless approved to do so or unless the licensee makes a public statement announcing their participation.

Note that the location of licensed premises are not disclosed even where a licence holder makes a statement about their licence. We also do not identify to state level, as this information may be able to be used to identify a licence holder.
