1st legal Medical Marijuana Plant sold in Oklahoma

Posted by Sagar Satapathy on September 27, 2018.

The first ever medical marijuana plant has been sold at a dispensary in Fairfax Oklahoma in the state. 

One John Frasure, a Vietnam-era veteran who struggles with PTSD and a variety of ailments, purchased the seedling which is the first plant to be legally grown and sold after the state legalized medical marijuana in June this year.

"I didn't think this was going to happen in my lifetime. And that’s what's so really great about this is, that's why we did the sale. We want everybody to know that yes cannabis is for sale here in Oklahoma. Medical cannabis is for sale,” said Frasure.

Voters had passed State Question 788 back in June. However, those products, which contain oils extracted from the cannabis plant, were already legal to sell as long as they don’t contain traces of tetrahydrocannabinol — or THC — the psychoactive chemical found in marijuana.

As per the State Question 788, the medical marijuana license holders can legally have up to six seedlings and six adult plants. However, all plants sold in Oklahoma have to be grown in Oklahoma itself as the federal government says it’s illegal to bring the plants from other states.

Meanwhile, a state legislative committee met Wednesday for the 10th time to discuss the matter.

In Oklahoma, it costs 100 dollars to get a license for two years.
