Oklahoma City’s school board approves medical marijuana policy
More than six months after Oklahoma voters passed a measure that legalized medical marijuana, a local school district has approved its own policy regarding the law.
Under State Question 788, a person 18 years or older would need to apply for a medical marijuana license with the Oklahoma State Department of Health after receiving a note from their doctor. If approved, the patient would then have to pay $100 to obtain that license.
Since applications became available in August, officials say more than 30,000 patient applications have been approved by the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority.
