On Tuesday morning, the Oklahoma State Board of Health will meet to review and possibly adopt the proposed medical marijuana rules, nearly two weeks since voters approved State Question 788.

The final 76-page document of the rules was drafted by the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA). On its website, it says it "carefully reviewed and considered" comments from the public and state agencies on the rules. 

OMMA made 10 changes to the original draft, including requiring pregnancy tests for women before a doctor makes a recommendation for medical marijuana use. You can find those here.

The board meeting will take place at the health department in Oklahoma City at 11 a.m. The public is welcome to attend, but no comments on the proposed rules will be allowed at the meeting.

It will be streamed live for those who can't attend.
