Oklahoma’s health officials have approved new medical marijuana rules this week.
The board adopted new guidelines for the use of medical marijuana in the state on Wednesday after medical marijuana advocates as well as the attorney general criticized the earlier rules from last month.
The previous rules had included a ban on the sale of smoke-able pot as well as requirements that a pharmacist be in every dispensary and that women of “childbearing age” undergo a pregnancy test.
The board had voted unanimously to adopt the new rules that emend or entirely revoke the previous rules.
The board unexpectedly approved the rules during an emergency meeting on July 10. The rules had been met with major criticism as well as lawsuits challenging the rules.
