Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin Signs Medical Marijuana Regulations, Advocates Call For Action

However, additions introduced before the meeting Tuesday included provisions that ban smokable marijuana and some edibles, and the requirement that each dispensary hire a pharmacist. Those measures were pushed by the state's health care community, who opposed State Question 788 before more than half a million Oklahomans voted to make it law.

The governor can only approve or deny the entire rule change; she cannot pick and choose which parts of it to sign. Fallin said she expects modifications to the rules but continued to rule out a special legislative session to address comprehensive legislation.

Lawmakers will have a chance to review the rules, but only when they convene in regular session next February.

"I know some citizens are not pleased with these actions," Fallin said. "But I encourage everyone to approach this effort in a constructive fashion in order to honor the will of the citizens of Oklahoma who want a balanced and responsible medical marijuana law."
