OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A group seeking a public vote on whether to legalize recreational marijuana in Oklahoma is temporarily abandoning its effort. The two proponents _ Amy Young and Vanessa Avery _ notified the Secretary of State’s office this week that they were withdrawing the petition. Organizers say they plan to rewrite the petition with greater protections for the existing medical marijuana industry. Oklahoma voters overwhelmingly approved a medical marijuana program last year, and the industry has been booming in the state ever since.
