Bill filed to establish medical marijuana program in Okla.

Source: kfor.com

OKLAHOMA CITY – A state senator has filed bills to establish a medical marijuana program and reduce the penalties for possessing small amounts of marijuana in Oklahoma.

Sen. Constance Johnson filed Senate Bill 902 that would direct the State Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision to develop and adopt rules that allow individuals with debilitating medical conditions to use marijuana with approval from their physicians and to establish fees for the “licensing, production, distribution, and consumption” of marijuana for medical purposes.

The other, Senate Bill 914, would reduce the maximum penalty for possession of up to 1.5 ounces of marijuana from a maximum of one year in jail and a fine of $1,000 to a maximum of 10 days in jail and a fine of $200.

Eighteen states and the District of Columbia allow patients with qualifying conditions to use medical marijuana with recommendations from their physicians.

2. Yeah, lots of luck, but still, even proposing this in Ok

would have been unthinkable a few years ago.

3. As the Gov and our

teabag congress work to reduce state revenue through taxes to zero, I think the idea
of MM and the revenues it will bring in will become more and more palatable.

4. I think Hell will freeze 1st before Texas passes something like this!

I have Small Fiber Sensory Neuropathy, which is extremely painful 24/7/365! I take many powerful prescriptions, with bad side effects, at great cost even with insurance. Nothing works better than this gift from Mother Nature, but the Repugs politicize this like everything else and Obama went back on this promise. I hope he does another 180 but here in Tx that may make it even harder if he does support it! Crazy shite, huh?

5. It's picking up some steam here in Oklahoma.

People are starting to mobilize, this might have legs.
