A petition has been filed in an effort to legalize recreational marijuana in Oklahoma.
State Question 806, filed on Dec. 12, would add an amendment to the Constitution, which would generally legalize, regulate and tax marijuana for people aged 21 and older under state law. Specifically, it protects the personal use of marijuana for those 21 years old and older, while establishing quantity limits, safety standards and other restrictions, according to the language of the petition.
The amendment would maintain prohibitions on impaired driving and distribution to, or use by, those under 21, according to the petition. It would not affect employers’ ability to restrict marijuana use by employees.
The Oklahoma Marijuana Authority would license and regulate marijuana-related conduct and administer the article pursuant to specified requirements. It provides for local zoning of businesses and permits municipalities, upon popular vote, to limit or prohibit retail licenses.
The amendment would also impose a 15% excise tax on sales (not applicable to medical marijuana) to fund the authorities, localities where sales occur, schools (for programs to prevent substance abuse and improve student retention and performance) and drug-addiction treatment programs — it would ensure the funds add to, and not replace, existing funding.
If voters approve the state question, it would take effect in 90 days.
Oklahoma voters in 2018 legalized medical marijuana. But previous attempts to legalize recreation marijuana fell short of signatures needed.

Supporters need about 178,000 signatures to get the constitutional amendment on the ballot.
The Secretary of State will set the date for signature gathering to begin and supporters will then have 90 days to collect the required number of signatures in order to qualify for the November 2020 ballot, organizers said.
