    The Oklahoma State Department of Health has released a final proposed draft of emergency rules for the newly established Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority program. The program was created after Oklahomans voted in late June to pass State Question 788, which legalized medical marijuana in the Sooner State. An initial set of rules and guidelines were released for public review and comment on June 26. “Those public comments, as well as comments from other state agency partners and other interested groups, have been carefully reviewed and considered from a legal perspective with the overarching responsibility of the Department of Health to promote and protect public health while implementing the will of the people as demonstrated in the passage of State Question 788,” the updated rules state. The proposed final draft includes 20 rules, including who can make recommendations and write prescriptions for patients and who can use medical marijuana. Of those 20 rules, 10 are changes from the previous proposal. Officials release updated final draft of rules for Okla. Medical Marijuana Authority
