Marijuana Laws in Oklahoma

Marijuana Laws in Oklahoma

The State of Oklahoma does not allow the recreational use of cannabis. State Question 780 was supported by 58% of the state’s voters in November 2016. This law, which takes effect on July 1, 2017, makes all cannabis possession charges misdemeanors, including first offenses and subsequent offenses.

Oklahoma lawmakers have adopted a CBD-specific marijuana law. This allows certain qualifying patients to use CBD products to treat their chronic and/or debilitating conditions. According to the law, these patients have access to liquid preparation of CBD products, which may not contain over 3/10 of 1% of THC.

However, no medical marijuana dispensaries are operational in the state at this time to make legal purchases of CBD products.
