Rural Leaders Add Their Support to Opposition of State Question 788

Thu, 21 Jun 2018 11:41:47 CDT

Rural Leaders Add Their Support to Opposition of State Question 788 Many community leaders, city officials and business owners across rural Oklahoma have joined a group of influencers from the medical, faith and business community in opposition to State Question 788 on June 26.

The state question, community leaders say, is poorly written and leaves too much to question, posing threats to Oklahoma communities and businesses.

“SQ 788 is not the right policy for Oklahoma communities,” House Majority Leader, Rep. Mike Sanders (R-HD 59) said. “Not only would the question effectively legalize recreational marijuana, exposing our families and children to secondhand marijuana smoke, it will prevent our employers from maintaining drug-free workplaces, putting employees, their safety and the public at risk. For rural communities where operation of farm equipment is the norm, this is an incredibly dangerous policy.”

Dennis Baker, Kingfisher Chief of Police
Dillon Berry, Dewey County Commissioner
Brent Bolen, Bolen Farms
James Fuser, Oklahoma Farm Bureau
