TULSA, Okla. — Imagine having your marijuana delivered the same way as your pizza, right to your front door. That could soon be a reality in Oklahoma.

House Bill 3227 advanced in the Oklahoma House. It would authorize licensed transporters to deliver medical marijuana to homes.

If passed into law, it could mean extra green, the dollars not the weed, for dispensary owners. Taras Filenko is the CEO of Tulsa based dispensary Seed Cannabis CO.

"We see it as a positive impact on the business," Filenko said.

Filenko also says home delivery would benefit his clients who have mobility issues.

This would not be a street level drug deal. The marijuana has to be sold from a dispensary. Identification and medical marijuana card status will need to be verified before delivery.

Don't expect multiple deliveries because it will be limited to one a day per cardholder. Also, as far as where you can have your product delivered, only to your residence.

2 Works for You reached out to Tulsa and Broken Arrow police to see if they are changing their policy regarding marijuana found during traffic stops. Both departments said they would evaluate it if the bill becomes law.
