The Marijuana Question

Wednesday, May 16th at 6pm

Oklahoma Watch will host a public forum in Oklahoma City to discuss State Question 788, the Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative, which seeks to legalize the licensed cultivation, use and possession of marijuana for medicinal purposes.

The “Oklahoma Watch-Out forum” is free and open to the public and will be held from 6  to 7 p.m. at The Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Dr.
Featured panelists will include Frank Grove, chairman of Vote Yes on 788 campaign and president of the Drug Policy Reform Network of Oklahoma, and Dr. Jean Hausheer, president of the Oklahoma State Medical Association.

Oklahoma Watch Executive Editor David Fritze will moderate the discussion, and audience questions will be allowed. Those interested in attending are encouraged to register online.

State Question 788 will appear on the June 26 primary ballot. The event is intended to inform Oklahomans about the specifics of the proposal, the issues surrounding medical marijuana, and how Oklahoma’s question compares with similar measures passed or rejected in other states.
