TULSA -- Oklahoma voters on Tuesday approved a ballot measure to legalize medical marijuana in the state. 

State Question 788 was passed by voters by securing 56 percent of the vote. 

Doctors will be permitted to recommend a patient, who is at least 18 years old, a medical marijuana license. A license holder will be allowed to possess up to three ounces of the drug, six mature plants and six seedlings.

In 2016, supporters of an initiative petition gathered enough signatures to schedule a statewide referendum on the measure.
