In Newly Legalized Oklahoma, Medical Panel Wants Smokable Medical Marijuana Outlawed


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A group of medical professionals that opposed a medical cannabis state question approved by voters in June 2018 is now proposing strict new guidelines, including a ban on smoking the drug and a limit on the number of places where it is sold.

Representatives for doctors, hospitals, and pharmacists outlined their concerns Monday, July 9, 2018, one day before the state Board of Health considers emergency rules for the new medical marijuana industry in Oklahoma.

Oklahoma State Medical Association President Jean Hausheer said a ban on smokable forms of marijuana is an “absolute demand.” The group also is pushing a requirement that pharmacists be present at marijuana dispensaries.

Hausheer says she’s convinced that Oklahoma voters didn’t fully realize the implications of State Question 788, which passed June 26, 2018, with nearly 57 percent of the vote.

  1. Jean Hausheer and her cronies are idiots trying for a money grab. We know what we voted for, idiots. It wasn’t for them to say what we as patients need.

      The definition of corruption in government today is The State Health Department of Oklahoma (Google it). Hey, we gave the world Scott Pruitt so corruption IS Oklahoma. The voters do not matter, only private prisons and big pharma!
