On Apr. 30, 2015, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin signed HB 2154, which allows the use of cannabis oil that is no more than 0.3% THC for the treatment of severe forms of epilepsy. The legislation has been crafted such that medical studies will be tightly controlled in an effort to scientifically research potential treatments, in a responsible way — the law’s focus is on support for well supervised medical trials studying the effects of CBD use in children diagnosed with debilitating seizures.

While lawmakers continue to work out the details as to what should and what shouldn’t be allowed in terms of CBD oils, Oklahoma voters will have an opportunity to legalize medical marijuana next year through State Question 788
