It's already effectively legal in Oklahoma. Medicinal use is nothing more than a sympathetic-sounding term to pacify people who are against pot use. Walk into the doc's office, pay 200 or so for your marijuana recommendation ("Doctor, I suffer from depression"), and have at it. I don't know what pot costs on the street but for high-grade bought from a dispensary they're getting $300/oz for it in Oklahoma.

They're one of the last big states where you can get a night in the graybar hotel for possession of a joint.
Saw a Live PD show where a hot chick got a felony charge for possession of a THC vape pipe, in the state of Tx...
I guess you must have met a politician that wasn't in love with tax money, I sure haven't.

I donít know if itís changed any since 91 but in Baytown your ass will go to jail for 24hrs for having an open beer before high noon (gotta wait for the Baptist to get outta church) & itíll cost you big $$.

Canít imagine what those pompous assholes over there letting weed become legal.

I think it's a Class B misdemeanor unless you're selling it. And yep, by 2024 I'm thinking Texas will be blue as the Gulf of Mexico. It's already majority-minority.

Medical pot is being seriously considered this year in Texas, and at the very least I'd like to see it decriminalized. Go to jail for having a joint in your possession? Get a police record which could hinder your ability to get a good job? That's nuts.

MJ legalization is nothing more than one of the best leftist scams of this century. I agree it increases tax revenue, the problem is that the states spend about 1.5X what they bring in. CA, OR, WA, CO for example all spend more money regulating the industry than the tax brings in in the first place so they are net negative. So it is pretty easy to see how the scam works. They put in on the ballot, garner way more votes for the left which moves the state even further to the left. Then the new law increases tax revenue which gives the leftists more money to expand the government/regulatory agencies. None of these states have reduced the tax burden on the common taxpayer and all of them are still deficit spending. You know that saying about a bank takes in $1M, it can loan out $10M? That is what the states are doing with every dime they get from MJ but on a take in $1M spend $1.5M ratio.



I am glad TX is avoiding it, it will be the death of the Red State if they do.

Texas never legalized gambling, but OK did, altho I'm not sure they make as much money from it as they thought they would. The potential pot market is much bigger than gambling in my estimation

Your Governor wants the tax money. Liberals rail against cigarette smoking (isn't marijuana smoking, smoking?) yet NYC doesn't mind at all - each pack is taxed $5.85 and the state as a whole collected over $1 billion last year in cig taxes. Smoke away; let the taxpayers and the insurance companies pay for your cancer and emphysema treatments.
