Where many of the proponents of the State Question agree with Fallin's decision to step back and let the team at the Oklahoma Health Dept. enact their agency oversight and process with no attempt to delay or change the language of SQ788; Bud Scott's team wants to first get new statutes in place which would supercede the measures which the voters approved. Scott is demanding a new special session to clamp down on patients, subjecting them to home inspections, along with other laws.
This encroachment alone has resulting social media outrage at Mr. Scott, & his trade group. Robert 'Bud' Scott is the brother of a former Democrat state Representative from the Tulsa area (Seneca Scott).
Rep. Collin Walke(D-OKC) is also 'beating the special session drum' along with Bud Scott. But Walke goes even further in detailing the motive. Walke says that allowing the seriously ill to cultivate a few plants for personal medical care, will weaken the market and suppress the prices, making it less lucrative for the corporate dispensaries.
