Marijuana Laws for Oklahoma

The marijuana laws in Oklahoma will be constantly changing and updating. The following information found from MPP, will provided needed information that will cover the laws of Oklahoma pertaining to marijuana.

"Last update: June 9, 2019

On March 14, 2019, Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) signed a "unity" medical cannabis bill, HB 2612, into law. HB 2612 revised the state’s voter-enacted medical cannabis program. While some changes, such as providing for lab-testing, are beneficial, others whittle away at patient protections.

Most notably, provisions protecting patients from losing their jobs for testing positive for medical cannabis metabolites (which can stay in one’s system for a month after use) have been seriously eroded: HB 2612 includes a broad exemption for “safety sensitive positions,” which includes any job involving driving, direct patient care, or direct child care.

Meanwhile, another bill to modify the medical cannabis law, including by increasing local control — SB 1030 — initially included a modest decriminalization provision. As passed by the Senate, SB 1030 would have reduced the penalty for simple possession of cannabis to a fine of up to $400. Under Oklahoma's voter-enacted medical cannabis law, anyone possessing up to 1.5 ounces of cannabis that can "state a medical condition" is subject to a misdemeanor fine of up to $400. The Senate version of SB 1030 would have applied even to those who did not "state a medical condition." Unfortunately, the provision was not included in the House or the conference committee version. A summary of the final bill — which became law — is available here.
