Oklahomans for Health has launched a campaign for the governor to set an election date for SQ788.

The move comes after a petition last year garnered enough signatures to put the state question on a ballot to Oklahoma voters.

SQ788 would permit doctors to recommend patients for state-issued medical marijuana licenses in Oklahoma.

More than a year later, Oklahomans for Health says Gov. Fallin has not yet signed a declaration stating an election date.

They say she needs to do that at least 90 days before the question can go on the ballot, and they are calling for voters to contact the governor and push for a June vote.
