Oklahoma group refiles recreational marijuana petition

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A group seeking to legalize recreational marijuana in Oklahoma is refiling their petition that seeks a public vote on the issue.

Two Oklahoma City residents filed the new petition on Friday with the Secretary of State’s office. The group’s last attempt earlier this month was met with a fierce backlash from many in the state’s burgeoning new medical marijuana industry. So, the proponents say they withdrew their last petition and rewrote it to include greater protection for the medical marijuana industry and their patients.

A second, separate petition to decriminalize marijuana also was filed on Friday by a Tulsa man, Paul Tay.
