Oklahoma Legalizes Medical Marijuana
Puff, Puff, Pass:
Oklahoma Approves Medical Marijuana
Voters in Oklahoma have passed State Question 788, which will legalize medical marijuana, according to results from the State Election Board. Soon after polls closed, initial voting totals showed favor for the measure by a consistent margin of about 10 points.
Ultimately, 56.8 percent of voters favored SQ 788, while 43.2 percent opposed. Vote totals from Oklahoma’s rural counties processed first, but as urban precincts reported the measure’s margin of victory grew.
“It’s got a 68,000-vote margin, and you’re telling me that the three urban counties haven’t come in yet where the support is likely stronger?” University of Oklahoma political science professor Keith Gaddie rhetorically asked shortly after 9 p.m. “This thing is likely to increase. It could be a landslide.”
Oklahoma will join 29 other states as well as the District of Columbia in legalizing medical marijuana. Gov. Mary Fallin has said she is likely to call a special session of the Oklahoma Legislature to create a more robust regulatory framework similar to those found in other states.
The historic passage of SQ 788 will end an outright prohibition against marijuana that has existed in Oklahoma since 1933.
