TULSA, Okla. - A group supporting the legalization of marijuana in Oklahoma has set their sights on recreational marijuana.
Green the Vote finished the latest count on petition signatures Sunday. They are working to get two new state questions on the November ballot.
State Questions 796 and 797 are both more than two-thirds of the way to the nearly 125,000 signatures needed to make it to the ballot, according to organizers.
They have about two weeks to get the remaining signatures by the deadline.
It is up to the Attorney General's Office to review the language of the petition after it receives enough signatures.
Governor Fallin would then set the date of the new state question to appear on the ballot.
Governor Fallin could leave that responsibility to the next governor after the November election if it does not appear on that ballot.
State Question 796, if passed, would amend the state constitution “to allow marijuana to be classified as an herbal drug regulated by the Oklahoma Cannabis Commission.”
State Question 797, if passed, would amend the state constitution to let anyone 21 and over grow and use marijuana for recreational purposes.
