Gary Richardson on Drugs
If people vote to legalize medical marijuana, I'll honor it
Gov. Mary Fallin announced that State Question 788 will be on the June 26 statewide ballot, which also will include primary races for governor and many other offices. Republican candidate Gary Richardson, of Tulsa, said, "I have said from the beginning
of my campaign that the people are the ultimate legislative body according to our state constitution and as Governor I will honor the will of the people when they vote on SQ788 this June."
Passage of the question would allow people with a state-issued medical license approved by a board-certified physician to possess certain amounts of marijuana.
The question would also establish a regulatory regime for growing and selling marijuana. Medical marijuana is legal in 29 states and the District of Columbia; Oklahoma has never voted on the issue.
