Early this morning there will be a new draft set of Medical Marijuana Rules being prepared for next Wednesday's meeting of the Board of Health.
Isaac Caviness (CBD shop owner) & Chris Moe (MMJ patient) were two of the select group of Cannabis medicine proponents whom Interim Director Tom Bates of the Oklahoma Health Department (ODH) invited to get a sneak preview and give feedback on the ODH new draft rules. SQ788 author, Chip Paul called SoonerPolitics yesterday to confirm he is also attending the meeting.
The draft will be posted at http://omma.ok.gov/ at any moment. There will be some public response accommodations over the next 4 days. On Tuesday a final draft will likely be posted for the Wednesday OBH emergency meeting.
It is essential to the constitutional right of petitioning of Govt. and right or redress of grievance; that citizens study this and any set of proposed rules. Waiting until Wednesday to speak up, is a roadmap to more failure. If a citizen has a concern, then they have a duty to become informed promptly!
If further board obstruction occurs, citizens say they may exercise another petition drive.... to get 5000 signatures for a grand jury to look at evidence regarding the state agencies & board members in collusion to obstruct the law.
Here's what the OMMA's Rules & Regulations page looked like at 8am, today.

Those public comments, as well as comments from other state agency partners and other interested groups, have been carefully reviewed and considered from a legal perspective with the overarching responsibility of the Department of Health to promote and protect public health while implementing the will of the people as demonstrated in the passage of State Question 788.
Below is a summary of the proposed rules. All changes from the previous version posted for public comment are noted by an asterisk.
