Today we have a huge growth in Oklahoma's economy partly due to the pristine rollout of our Medical Marijuana program. Are there problems with it? Oh, yeah. But several wise policies fell into place and a few heros took a stand against efforts to derail the Oklahoma model.
'Reaganomics' is a term that economists coined to describe the policies that President Reagan successfully implemented in the 1980s to spur on a massive economic growth in the US economy. But the old Roosevelt mindset fought hard to derail it, in reagan's day. There are some Oklahoma Republicans who have recently resorted to Roosevelt behaviors.
The Associated Press just published an article which hit to top of the Drudge Report over the weekend. The story by Sean Murphy details how massive the size of the economic investment is. Over 10,000 medical marijuana business licenses have been issued. That makes Oklahoma the 2nd largest in the nation, just behind Oregon. But when you consider that Oregon & all the west coast is in full repeal of the marijuana prohibition, Oklahoma is in uncharted waters of huge medical marijuana infrastructure.
