Fallin reacts to passage of SQ 788

Ponca City Now - June 27, 2018 10:34 am

Gov. Mary Fallin issued the following statement after unofficial election results show Oklahoma voters passed State Question 788, which legalizes the licensed use, sale, and growth of marijuana for medicinal purposes:

“I respect the will of the voters in any question placed before them to determine the direction of our state. It is our responsibility as state leaders to look out for the health and safety of Oklahoma citizens.

“As I mentioned in previous public comments, I believe, as well as many Oklahomans, this new law is written so loosely that it opens the door for basically recreational marijuana. I will be discussing with legislative leaders and state agencies our options going forward on how best to proceed with adding a medical and proper regulatory framework to make sure marijuana use is truly for valid medical illnesses.”
