Will Oklahoma Be #3 to Legalize Marijuana?

Oklahoma Bill 2116 (to be introduced) seeks to legalize and regulate marijuana in the State of Oklahoma. And the pot vs. alcohol comparisons continue.

Oklahoma Bill 2116 (to be introduced) seeks to legalize and regulate marijuana in the State of Oklahoma. And the pot vs. alcohol comparisons continue.

In a video interview released on YouTube by ABC affiliate KSPR-33, Oklahoma State Senator Constance Johnson showed her preference for legal marijuana in the State of Oklahoma. She is introducing a bill (Oklahoma Senate Bill 2116) that would allow regulation and taxation of marijuana in Oklahoma.

According to reports, Johnson said that enacting the bill would “acknowledge it (marijuana) and legalize it up to one ounce, I believe. That’s our intent.”

Mark Woodward of the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, countered afterwards with his perspective that marijuana destroys lives, and is worse than “any other drug”. Mr. Woodward clearly supports alcohol over pot, based on his claims that “everyone” who smokes pot is a safety risk, while not everyone who drinks is such a risk:

I’ve seen it wreck more lives than any other drug...While a person can take a drink of alcohol and not get drunk, marijuana always causes a person to become impaired. The big difference is everyone who smokes marijuana gets intoxicated, becomes high off of it and becomes a safety risk.

I think we need to accept the realities that alcohol is a dangerous drug, prescription drugs are dangerous. Marijuana has not killed anyone.

Myself and wife are waiting in prayers and hope that Oklahoma sees that cannabis cures and helps and prevents many,many and many disease, I know I’m one of them, from AZ and participated in that program, we are more stable than a drinker that has a loaded gun as a car or (a loaded gun) we live in the smallest town full of millionaires by statistics. Run it like AZ people.
