Oklahoma advocates want amendment on medical marijuana

The Associated Press and Tulsa World - July 8, 2018 8:02 am

(Information from: Tulsa World, http://www.tulsaworld.com)
TULSA, Oklahoma (AP) – Activists in Oklahoma are looking to entrench the right to use marijuana in the state’s constitution by promoting a pair of ballot measures.
The Tulsa World reports that the first state question would classify marijuana as an “herbal drug” and amend the Oklahoma Constitution. The other initiative says a person 21 years or older can possess or consume up to two ounces of marijuana for personal use. Both were filed in April.
Voters in Oklahoma backed the medicinal use of the drug last month. Yet, Isaac Caviness with Green the Vote says the two state questions being promoted are an “insurance policy” to make sure State Question 788 is not over regulated.
