Oklahoma Marijuana Activists Submit Signatures To Put Legalization On November Ballot

Oklahoma activists have submitted what they say are more than enough signatures to qualify a marijuana legalization initiative for the November ballot. The Oklahomans for Sensible Marijuana Laws (OSML) campaign announced on Tuesday that it had turned in over 164,000 signatures to the secretary of state’s office. They need 177,958 of the submissions to be valid in order to qualify the proposed statutory amendment. The initiative would allow adults 21 and older in the state to possess and purchase up to an ounces of cannabis and grow a limited number of plants for personal use. The campaign, which is being backed by the national New Approach PAC, is one of two citizen efforts to put legalization on the ballot, with another one still in the process of signature gathering for its own pair of complementary initiatives. That other campaign, Oklahomans for Responsible Cannabis Action (ORCA), tried to challenge the constitutionality of the competing measure on a single-subject basis, but the Supreme Court rejected the argument in April. In any case, OSML has pulled ahead and expects its measure to go before voters in November. Following the resolution of any challenges submitted to the signatures during a 10-day period and the verification of the petitions by the secretary of state’s office, officials there will notify the governor, who would then issue an election proclamation certifying the measure for the ballot. Thank you to the tens of thousands of Oklahoma voters and volunteers who made #SQ820 a reality. Together, we can take the next step in common-sense marijuana reform and generate new funding for critical investments like healthcare and education.
