Medical Marijuana Passes in Oklahoma

(Forbes) Voters in Oklahoma approved a ballot measure making the state the 30th in the nation to allow broad access to medical marijuana.
The proposal, which was leading by a 57% to 43% margin with more than 98% of precincts reporting on Tuesday night, would allow doctors to recommend cannabis for any medical condition they see fit.
Most other state medical marijuana laws delineate a specific list of diseases and disorders for which physicians can authorize patients’ participation.
Under the new Oklahoma law as drafted, legal patients will receive state ID cards and be allowed to possess three ounces of cannabis in public, and store up to eight ounces at home.
Home cultivation of six mature plants and six seedlings is allowed, as is possession of up to one ounce of cannabis concentrates and 72 ounces of marijuana-infused edible products. Patients could also designate a caregiver to purchase or grow medicine for them.
