The 30th state 

Oklahomans voted in favor of legalizing medicinal marijuana Tuesday, with 56.8% approving the measure, according to unofficial results with 99.6% of precincts reporting.

State Question No. 788 asked voters whether to legalize the use, sale and growth of medical marijuana in Oklahoma. It requires a medical marijuana license with approval from an Oklahoma Board certified physician, that would be issued by the state’s Department of Health. It also establishes a minimum age of 18 for medical marijuana licenses, although younger applicants can get an exception if a parent or guardian, and two doctors sign.

The results in Oklahoma are unofficial, but Gov. Mary Fallin issued a statement Tuesday night.

“I respect the will of the voters in any question placed before them to determine the direction of our state,” she said. “It is our responsibility as state leaders to look out for the health and safety of Oklahoma citizens.”

“As I mentioned in previous public comments, I believe, as well as many Oklahomans, this new is written so loosely that it opens the door for basically recreational marijuana. I will be discussing with legislative leaders and state agencies our options going forward on how best to proceed with adding a medical and proper regulatory framework to make sure marijuana use is truly for valid medical illnesses,” she said in a statement Tuesday after the vote.
