In June, Oklahomans will vote on State Question 788, a ballot initiative to legalize medical marijuana, and many people are asking – how has this worked in other states?

Who has legalized medical marijuana?

Supporters of legalizing medical marijuana in Oklahoma are opposing a Senate Bill to regulate it.

Senate Bill 1120 passed out of committee on Monday. The bill, authored by Senator Ervin Yen (R-Oklahoma City), would put tight restrictions on medical marijuana, if voters pass State Question 788 in June.

Voters will decide in June if Oklahoma will become the 30th state to legalize marijuana for medical use.

But, before voters cast their ballots on State Question 788, a bill could be pushed through the state legislature to put restrictions on medical marijuana, if it gets passed.

On June 26, voters will decide if Oklahoma will become the 30th state to legalize marijuana for medical use. But regulating the new industry could prove difficult.

If State Question 788 passes, licenses will be required for each stage of marijuana cultivation, including dispensaries, commercial growers, processors, and individual medical marijuana cards.
