Happy Birthday to Oklahoma’s SQ 788

Thanks to activists, and citizens voting in Medical Cannabis by a large margin this time last year, Oklahoma has one of the best medical marijuana programs with abundant dispensaries, offerings, low barriers for entry to enter the industry, and protection for gun rights. All medical marijuana states, especially in the east coast (except Maine) could stand to learn from Tokelahoma.
