Oklahoma Governor Signs Medical Cannabis Bill Into law

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin has signed into oklahomalaw legislation to legalize the medical use of low-THC cannabis oil.

House Bill 2835 allows those with certain medical conditions who receive a recommendation from a physician to possess and use cannabis oil, given it has no more than 0.3% THC (tetrahydrocannabinol).

Last year Oklahoma lawmakers passed a bill legalizing medical cannabis oil for those with epilepsy; House Bill 2835 expands this law to allow those with intractable nausea and vomiting, lack of appetite due to conditions such as cancer, and spasticity issues due to Multiple Sclerosis and paraplegia to use the medicine.

The measure was passed by the House of Representatives with a 69 to 14 vote, and was passed unanimously by the Senate, 44 to 0.

House Bill 2835 will take effect on November 1st.

    There is nowhere to buy it in Ok., that I know of, and no medical cannabis Dr’s to go to like in Ca.
    I have appetite issues from Lupus, chronically underweight.
    I don’t know how to access it.
    Plus, this is the stupidest and restrictive law. Just legalize it already!!!!
