Oklahoma has been in the midst of a wild market where everyone is fighting to exist in the traditional marijuana industry. Oklahoma voted in 2018 for Question 788 for medical marijuana. Thankfully, they’ve found time in the chaos to revise their hemp laws. Now, hemp-derivatives are legal along with traditional medical marijuana. Oklahoma has yet to legalize recreational, unfortunately—you can be arrested for any amount. This can result in a misdemeanor that can be a fine up to $1000 based on the amount you are carrying.
