    Default Re: Medical Marijuana Dispensaries

    Three years ago on Aug. 17, activists submitted petitions for SQ788 to the Oklahoma Secretary of State's office. Remarkable that there were barely enough signatures and they did not get challenged. Former State Rep. Joe Dorman with cart.

    Oklahoman reporting the tax revenue is up 2.5 million/month and 160k patient licenses. Not a bad little revenue stream.

    I think it must be higher than 160k by now since that was what was reported over a month ago.
    Imagine what the Hog to the south will be bringing in once they legalize MMJ.

    Most the dispensaries are really just getting rolling.

    Some of the larger, more professional outlets are raking in tons of money and it's ramping up.

    Thanks for the info, we're at NW 36th/May, so it's further than we'd normally go, but we might be out that way in the future, so we'll check it out if we are...

    Imagine how much we’ll bring in if they don’t.

    Not unreasonable to think some Texans are finding ways to get an OK card, drive up to winstar area, loading up driving back.

    Lol, ironic if the tide turns opposite of when l was in college and we'd drive south to Gainesville for strong beer.

    With the amazing amount of dispensaries that have popped up, is there an initiative to get recreational pt on the ballot? I know there was one last year but it has been quite quiet on any new movements to get recreational passed.

    No rec petition is out, so far. The required number of signatures for a petition is even more overwhelming than before. Sponsors shouldn't try a rec petition, especially one for a state constitutional amendment, unless they have money to pay signature takers. Most people won't get signatures unless paid. For example, even after all the publicity marijuana was getting in summer 2018, the rec petition came up short by over 20,000 signatures. A huge blunder made was that it was for a state constitutional amendment, requiring a much greater number of signatures. If only it had been for a statute change like SQ788 was, we would be voting to legalize rec marijuana in 2020.

    Getting rec on the ballot is no guarantee it will pass. A recent Sooner poll showed about 60% of Oklahomans were opposed to legalizing rec marijuana. People opposed can change their minds if given enough time. My guess that time may be in 2024 to take a vote on rec, barring something that could speed things up.

    I’m opposed to rec. the system we have now is good enough, it’s not hard to get your card if you want one.

    If they can come up with a device, similar to a breathalyzer, to determine whether or not you are DUI, I would be comfortable with a rec classification. Not an Officer, no matter how much training, guessing.

    My biggest fear is regardless of the revenue increase to the state, it will be filtered to good ol boys brother in laws, and buddies, just like everything else in this state, and slim to none will make it to better our state, roads, infrastructure, teachers, and so on. This revenue stream will help the state about the same as the lottery helped the teachers.

    Reminder that the lottery contributes about $130 million/year to education. A good amount but relatively small amount compared to entire budget. Lottery officials overestimated a bit on what it would bring in but it still contributes a decent chunk of change. You also dont have to play it, you know.

    Same for MMJ, its not going to bring in a ton of money to the state. Some money, yes, but its not going to solve all our budgetary problems. And if you thought so, you werent thinking clearly.

    I figured the deal was cut education. Don't worry, the cut will be made up by sin taxes, except when general tax revenues are down. Is that the education theory?

    Maybe if they weren't afraid to advertise it more, the lottery would bring in more money. The casinos sure can advertise a lot and so draw money away from the lottery.

    While pretty new, the one at 63rd and N. May looks like the luxury outlet for all this. Stem, I think it's called.
