OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University both say all marijuana, including medical marijuana, remains banned on the two campuses.
OU and OSU say in a joint news release Thursday that they are legally required to comply with the Federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act that mandates drug prevention programs and prohibits the use of illegal drugs on campus or at university-sponsored events and activities. The two must also comply with the Federal Drug-Free Workplace Act that describes the drug-free policies required at workplaces with certain federal contracts.
The two say students and employees “cannot consume, smoke or possess marijuana on campus” even if they have a prescription.
Oklahoma voters approved medical marijuana during a June election.
