A bill under consideration at the Oklahoma Legislature would legalize medical marijuana for patients with some conditions, including cancer and HIV.

 

Rep. Eric Proctor, D-Tulsa, said he decided to introduce the bill this session after several constituents from his district had to leave the state to obtain marijuana for medical conditions.

 

Proctor's House Bill 1877 also proposes medical marijuana should be made available to patients with glaucoma, hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Tourette's syndrome, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, post-traumatic stress disorder, severe arthritis, fibromyalgia and Alzheimer's disease.

 

The bill is modeled after a statewide ballot measure on medical marijuana for qualifying medical conditions that voters in Arkansas passed in 2016, Proctor said.

 

"Arkansas is a state that is very similar to Oklahoma and this will give us the opportunity to see what works there and also see what doesn't work," he said.

 

The bill would create new revenue for Oklahoma, generated by licensing and sales, but it's still up for negotiation where most of the new revenue would go, Proctor said. The money could be funneled to a variety of state health and education programs, he said.
