Donte West, an entrepreneur and criminal justice reform advocate, is campaigning for the legalization of marijuana in Oklahoma ahead of the vote for State Question 820 on March 7th. State Question 820 proposes the legalization of marijuana for adult use and the expungement of nonviolent marijuana convictions. However, the proposed measure is facing opposition from those who argue that the state is already good with medical marijuana and that there is no need for further legalization.

Oklahoma’s Medical Marijuana Program

Oklahoma’s medical marijuana program is one of the most liberal in the country, with over 10% of the state’s population registered to use medical marijuana. There are currently over 2,000 dispensaries operating in the state, making it one of the largest medical marijuana markets in the country.

Opposition to State Question 820

Opponents of State Question 820 argue that the state is already good with medical marijuana and that there is no need for further legalization. They believe that legalizing marijuana for adult use would lead to increased drug abuse and crime. However, supporters of State Question 820 argue that legalizing marijuana for adult use would have significant benefits for individuals, families, and society as a whole.
