It looks like Oklahoma took a few steps back in the marijuana movement. A petition to legalize recreational marijuana in the state has been withdrawn according to the Oklahoma Secretary of State’s office.
State Question 806 had been filed on December 12th that would be added as an amendment to the Constitution, and would legalize, regulate, and tax marijuana for people aged 21 and older under state law.
The amendment would additionally maintain prohibitions on impaired driving and distribution to, or use by, those under 21, according to the petition. It would not affect employers’ ability to restrict marijuana use by employees.
According to online records, the proponents of the petition on Dec. 23 filed an official notice of withdraw with the Secretary of State’s Office. State Question 806 is no longer active.
