The landmark question, whether Oklahomans are supportive of SQ788, found that 62% of Oklahomans favor the measure.
“We’re cautiously optimistic. There’s clearly still a lot of work to be done by passionate volunteers who believe in the research. Oklahomans know there is a way out of the opioid epidemic, and that’s medical cannabis. Patients and physicians have a right to converse about this solution.” said Aaron Baker, OK4H board member.
“A focus on education is key as we head into the June vote. We feel it is of vital importance that people understand that the minimal Oklahoma medical marijuana provision currently in effect leaves the vast majority of people with no legal option for cannabis as medicine." says Bridget K. Wood, OK4H board member.
According to the poll, a solid 73% of Oklahomans indicated they would support the physician recommendation section of SQ788.
The group also queried support for farming of agriculture hemp which polled at 58% favorable which is no surprise considering the positive economic impact its production would have on the state.
Chip Paul, OK4H co-founder states: "There is plenty to be done before June 26th to make this a success."
Oklahomans for Health’s questions in this quarter's poll were sponsored by Ryan Early of Can-Tec Labs headquartered in Oklahoma City.
