I agree that legalization is a better option.

Senate Bill 808, authored by Sen. Joe Newhouse, R-Tulsa, authorizes the executive director of the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) to order licensees to cease operations if the director finds that an environmental emergency exists.
ďOklahomans are fed up with the bad actors in the marijuana industry, many of whom are here illegally and flaunting our laws, and damaging our environment.Ē


Oh right, "environment"

...and who got all the money Big Pharma was handing out up to the last election?

' The Protect our Kids No on 820 campaign formed in January and has yet to file a contribution report.'

How many people REALLY think they are going to get caught?

This is Oklahoma.






Probably most don't get caught.  Especially if one has connections. 

Heck, if one has the right connections one can get away with attempted murder in Oklahoma, even after one confesses and pleads guilty to it!   (Hint; gotta be white and connected to Tim Harris office somehow....)

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

As part of the budget package, the House on Friday passed and sent to the governor SB 15x, which would increase the annual license fee from marijuana growers from $500 to $2,500.

One of the biggest talking points among the cannabis opposition mob is that big Asian corporations are pushing out minorities and mom-and-pop entrepreneurs, so Im a bit confused as to how pricing them out of the competition is supposed to fix that.

It's not supposed to fix anything!   You have been around long enough to know that!   It IS supposed to turn it into such a massive cluster so that Stitt and his cronies can use it as a propaganda piece to get rid of medical marijuana.

From the beginning, the price to play was deliberately low, to encourage small businesses, minorities and those hurt by the illegitimate "war on drugs" to have a hand in the game, and to do so honestly and legally. Most appear to have done so following the letter and spirit of the law, only to be replaced by those with deeper pockets and darker intentions.  Oklahoma is fighting foreign ownership with one hand while encouraging it with the other.
(Somewhat brings to mind the scene where Dr. Strangelove is almost strangled by his own hand, but I digress.)

That was the intention of the people who supported it and got it to pass.   NOT the intention of the pieces of Stitt and other Minions trying to game the system.  Deeper pockets and darker intentions group.
