Signatures Filed for Oklahoma recreational marijuana ballot measure

Signatures Filed for Oklahoma recreational marijuana ballot measure

A group that wants to legalize recreational marijuana in Oklahoma has submitted signatures to qualify the measure for a statewide vote after saying it might not have enough to qualify for the November ballot.

The pro-marijuana group Green the Vote submitted the signatures to the secretary of state for inspection Wednesday.

Green the Vote said last month it had more than enough signatures, but retracted that on Tuesday, saying those numbers were inflated.

The group needs at least 124,000 signatures to qualify for the ballot but had collected less than 80,000 before Wednesday’s deadline.

Isaac Caviness, president of Green the Vote, was asked how many votes his group had collected and responded, “that I have no idea,” the Tulsa World reported.

Even if the group has sufficient signatures, the timing is tight to get the measure on the Nov. 6 ballot.

In June, voters approved a statewide ballot measure legalizing medical marijuana, and the nation has started taking applications for MMJ businesses.
