Special election for state question legalizing recreational marijuana set for March 7th

Brace yourselves -- recreational marijuana is coming to a ballot near you in March. Enough signatures were, unfortunately, collected via initiative petition to place the measure up for statewide vote. Interestingly enough, by this being delayed until March, OklahomaWatch points out that this November will be the first general election in "nearly a century" that a state question will not be on the ballot.

If there's anything Oklahoma needs more of, it's more pot. [insert eyeroll emoji]


OKLAHOMA CITY (Oct.18, 2022) – Pursuant to the provisions of Section 3 of Article V of the Oklahoma Constitution, Sections 12 and 25 of Title 34 of the Oklahoma Statutes, and the referral by the Secretary of State, Governor Kevin Stitt issued an Executive Proclamation today to declare a statewide special election on Tuesday, March 7, 2023 for State Question Number 820, Initiative Petition 434.

The proclamation can be read in full here [or below].

Copies of the governor’s Executive Proclamation have been distributed to the Secretary of State, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, and the Secretary of the State Election Board, who will implement the proclamation as appropriate.
