Oklahoma voters just approved one of the most progressive medical marijuana bills in the country

Oklahoma voters approved a medical marijuana bill on Tuesday, making the state the 30th in the nation to permit the use of marijuana with a doctor’s recommendation.

The measure is notable for reflecting one of the most permissive medical cannabis policies in the country. While most states specify a narrow list of medical conditions for which doctors can recommend the plant, in Oklahoma doctors will be able to recommend it for any condition.

Last year the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine reviewed the evidence on medical marijuana and concluded that it is effective at reducing chronic pain in adults, as well as nausea and vomiting in cancer patients.

Oklahoma patients with a medical marijuana license will be able to possess up to eight ounces of marijuana in their residences, carry up to three ounces, and grow up to 12 marijuana plants. The limits for possession and cultivation are stricter in many other states, and some states, such as New York, mandate that the drug cannot be smoked.

Additionally, Oklahoma’s measure reduces penalties for the possession of up to 1.5 ounces of marijuana for any individual with a medical condition, regardless of whether they have a medical marijuana license. [Read More @ Washington Post]
