OK: State Supreme to decide if medical marijuana appears on November ballot

Local News

The Oklahoma Supreme Court will decide if a medical marijuana proposal makes it onto the November ballot.

Today Oklahoma Secretary of State James Williamson says his office has completed counting of signatures for State Question 796, which would put the right to medical marijuana in the state’s constitution.

Williamson says the petition only had 95,176 signatures, which is well short of the 123,725 needed for it to be put on the ballot.

Although the tally is short of what was needed, the Oklahoma Supreme Court will ultimately determine if there are sufficient signatures to place the measure on the ballot.

The Secretary of State’s Office has not released the signature count for State Question 797, which would legalize recreational marijuana in the state.
