Is Marijuana Legalization Running Out of Fertile States?

1 min read


Oklahoma declined an invitation to join the recreational pot party after voters turned down a ballot measure that would have legalized recreational marijuana in a special statewide election on March 7.

With Oklahoma’s bustling medicinal program and millions spent on support for the campaign, the measure looked like it had a good chance. Just five years earlier, the state’s voters had approved medical marijuana by 14 percentage points, and Oklahoma then proceeded to create one of the most liberal MMJ frameworks in the country for businesses and personal use.

Proponents of this new measure had raised nearly $5 million in campaign support and offered a 15 percent tax on recreational sales to fund state education and budget initiatives. But 62 percent of voters turned down the offer.
