What’s ahead in 2018 for Oklahoma, from retail to the polls

The Associated Press - December 31, 2017 9:07 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahomans will choose a new governor and decide whether to legalize medical marijuana in what will be a busy political season in 2018.
At least a dozen candidates have joined the campaign to become the state’s 28th governor and succeed term-limited Gov. Mary Fallin.
Oklahoma could join 29 other states and the District of Columbia, which have a medical marijuana program that permits physicians to prescribe the drug for cancer patients and others with serious health issues.
The state will also see the culmination of a years-long campaign to update highly restrictive alcohol laws in 2018, when voter-approved changes will be implemented that allow wine and strong beer to be sold in grocery stores.
