D.A. David Prater is working with the OSBI to investigate potential high profile bribery charges at the Oklahoma State Board of Pharmacy. Ezell was evidently offered a higher paying job at the Board of Pharmacy in exchange for inserting language in her team's proposed rules which would mandate licensed pharmacists at all cannabis dispensaries.
At the Tuesday board meeting a board member (Dr Terry Gerard) presented that amendment language against Ezell's advice, and the board voted 8-1 to add it.
NonDoc broke the story earlier today and has the details.
The potential bribery narrative was taken from the investigation in recent days from Health Department former chief legal council, Julie Ezell. Ezell's phone was confiscated and she was charged with felonies for making up claims of stalking and potential harm. She resigned on Friday.
The phone evidence could reveal even more of the motivation behind some actions taken by others at the Board of Health.
