OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Supporters of a proposal to legalize medical marijuana in Oklahoma have formally begun collecting signatures in an effort to put the question on the ballot.
Oklahomans for Health is collecting signatures Saturday at businesses in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Lawton, Norman and Bartlesville.
The proposal would legalize medical marijuana for those under a doctor's care. It would also legalize commercial marijuana dispensaries. The group is also supporting a second proposal to allow groups one year instead of 90 days to collect the number of signatures needed to get a proposal on the ballot.
Oklahomans for Health has 90 days to collect the signatures of about 66,000 registered voters in order to get the question on the November ballot.
