Oklahoma Legalizes Medical Marijuana

Oklahoma has legalized medical marijuana.

Voters in Oklahoma have approved State Question 788, a citizen’s initiative that legalizes medical marijuana. This includes allowing patients to have up to three ounces of marijuana in their possession at any time, and up to eight ounces at a private residence. They can also have in their possession up to 72 ounces of marijuana products, and can grow up to six mature and six seedling plants. The law allows marijuana dispensaries, likely to be up and running by the second half of 2019.

To become a patient one simply needs to receive a recommendation from a doctor and register with the state. There’s no condition list, so any condition can qualify someone for  medical marijuana use if their doctor recommends it (this makes the new law one of the least-restrictive medical cannabis programs in the nation).
