'Green the Vote' gets approval to collect signatures for marijuana petitions
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
Oklahomans will vote on medical marijuana in June and working off this momentum the group "Green the Vote" is working to petition for constitutional amendments.
The Tulsa-based group has received approval from the state to begin collecting signatures for a state-wide election on both medicinal and recreational marijuana. They want to change the Oklahoma Constitution and make smoking pot legal for adults.
The group will start collecting signatures for the two state questions on May 11 and will need to gather around 125,000 before August 8 to get it on the November ballot.
This effort is different than June's medical marijuana vote because it is an amendment and doesn't go through the state legislature.
