SQ 788, Medical Marijuana, was enacted by a vote of 57 percent for the initiative on June 26. It does not take effect until Aug. 25, 2018. OHA, along with a coalition of health care and business organizations, opposed this question.
OHA does not oppose the use of medical marijuana. However, hospitals have concerns with how the state question was written and its impact on hospital workers and patient safety. Click on the fact sheet below under "Resources" to read more about our concerns.
The Oklahoma State Department of Health is responsible for licensing and regulation of medical marijuana. For information on the state question as it was enacted and the proposed rules and timeline, go to the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority web page at:
