OK Farm Bureau Joins Statewide Business, Medical, Faith and Community Coalition Opposing SQ 788

Thu, 14 Jun 2018 13:05:33 CDT

OK Farm Bureau Joins Statewide Business, Medical, Faith and Community Coalition Opposing SQ 788 Oklahoma Farm Bureau this week has joined a group of statewide business, medical, faith and community leaders in opposing State Question 788 on the June 26 primary ballot.



SQ 788 would amend Oklahoma state statutes to legalize medical marijuana. OKFB joined the SQ 788 is Not Medical Coalition, following a vote by the organization’s board of directors.



OKFB policy, which is written and voted on by grassroots members across the state, opposes the legalization of marijuana.



“After deep consideration of our grassroots policy and the language of the state question, the Oklahoma Farm Bureau board voted to oppose State Question 788,” said Rodd Moesel, OKFB president. “We have tremendous concerns about the impact of the measure on our state, especially in rural areas. Though we understand the arguments for medicinal marijuana, we believe State Question 788 is essentially recreational marijuana, is bad policy for our state and lacks significant regulations.”
