Oklahoma may be able to vote on legalizing marijuana in November

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._State lawmakers said no to legalizing marijuana in Oklahoma, but soon voters may get the final word.

State Senator Connie Johnson, a vocal advocate for the legalization of marijuana, believes it's time to let the people of Oklahoma decide and is working with a coalition to get the issue on the November ballot.

"It appears that the legislature is out of touch with what the citizenry wants. Marijuana is not going away," stated Sen. Connie Johnson, (D) Oklahoma City.

The State Attorney General must approve the ballot language first and then Johnson and supporters must collect 250,000 signatures on a petition. It's the same process that happened in Colorado and Washington before voters approved the legalization.

Senator Johnson believes it’s just a matter of time before Oklahoma follows suit.
