A big win for medical marijuana advocates. Voters in Oklahoma elected to legalize marijuana for medical purposes. With this Oklahoma became the 30th State to allow the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes.
Of the total votes received; 56% of voters were in support of medical marijuana, while 44% opposed it.
Opponents criticized the proposal because it doesn’t outline qualifying conditions, which will allow physicians to authorize marijuana use for a wide range of ailments and illnesses.
- Individuals 18 and older to obtain a medical marijuana license with a board-certified physician’s signature.
- Minors can get a license, but will require the approval of two physicians and their parent or legal guardian.
- The Oklahoma State Department of Health will enforce these regulations, including licensing for dispensaries, growers, and processors.
Oklahoma’s proposal for medical marijuana is also relatively unique in the sense that it doesn’t tie medical marijuana to any specific qualifying conditions. This will make it easier, compared to other states, to obtain marijuana for medicinal uses.
