Medical marijuana trade group demands special session, calls Fallin's decision a 'failure of leadership'

The leader of a trade group for Oklahoma’s fledgling medical marijuana industry said Monday that Gov. Mary Fallin’s decision not to convene a special legislative session regarding State Question 788 is a “failure of leadership” and called on the governor to reverse her Friday announcement.

Bud Scott, the executive director of New Health Solutions Oklahoma, said in a statement that Fallin opting not to call a special session is not in reality a victory for the medical marijuana industry but rather is indicative of skirting her duty to Oklahomans who supported having medical marijuana on the books.

“Treating sick Oklahomans with medical cannabis requires establishing a new and very complex industry that includes growers, processing facilities, distributors, dispensaries, medical research, security and technology companies and a variety of other professional services,” Scott said in a news release. “All of these sub-industries, and the thousands of jobs they represent, require responsible legislation establishing an orderly and fairly regulated marketplace.” FULL ARTICLE
