Confit cannabis

This month, the Guyutes chefs bring an infused French dish to the tables of Oklahoma Gazette readers.
French cuisine gains an extra dimension when you put it in the hands of cannabis chefs.

Moving forward

The challenge to State Question 807 will be heard by an Oklahoma Supreme Court referee this week.
Proponents for State Question 807 have filed their brief with the Oklahoma Supreme Court while the court has also denied a Tulsa attorney to submit a “friend of the court” brief and participate in the referee hearing scheduled for this week. On Feb. 18, petitioners for SQ807 Ryan Kiesel and Michelle Tilley filed their brief in response to the challenge with the court.

Policy party

The second patient event held at the Capitol this legislative session occurs on Fat Tuesday.
This year’s Fat Tuesday is going to be a little different, with a free patient drive and celebration scheduled outside the Capitol.

Tangled web

Paul Tay has both stalled the petition drive for State Question 807 and gotten the green light for his own State Question 808 and promises more legal actions from within the confines of the Tulsa County jail.
The petition drive for State Question 807 remains in limbo while the Oklahoma secretary of state has given the go-ahead for the gathering of signatures for State Question 808, but the author of that measure is both the challenger of SQ807 and also remains jailed in Tulsa County.

Peaceable assembly

A large group of Oklahoma cannabis advocates met with lawmakers and other policymakers at the March on the Capitol 2020.
Medical cannabis advocates and patients marched to the Capitol last Thursday, meeting with legislators and sharing stories of their successes since State Question 788 was passed.

Cannabis patients and fight fans flooded OKC Farmers Public Market on Saturday night for the sold-out debut of Buds and Brawls.

Food Issue: Boundless choices

When the Oklahoma medical cannabis market opened for business in fall 2018, choices of edibles were few and far between. In the months since, it seems like a new producer or product has hit the shelves every week, if not more frequently.

Sandwich artistry

The chefs at Guyutes have spiced up the traditional BLT with an added kick.
If you are going to make a sandwich, you might as well have some fun with it.

Tay’s tale

A challenge was filed to the State Question 807 initiative ballot petition on the last day by Paul Tay, an activist and political candidate with a rather colorful past.
On the final day of the challenge period for proposed State Question 807, a handwritten petition was filed with the court clerk for the Oklahoma Supreme Court.

Contrasting opinions

Lawrence Pasternack and Darrell Carnes argue the merits and weaknesses of State Question 806, which is now State Question 807.
 Nowhere have the debates been more rampant about the pros and cons of State Question 807, formerly State Question 806, than on social media. Lawrence Pasternack of the Oklahoma Cannabis Liberty Alliance shares his views on the positive aspects of SQ807, while Darrell Carnes of 788 Media Group argues that this constitutional amendment is the wrong move for the state of Oklahoma and its cannabis program.

Cannabis Issue: Absolved authorship

A number of people suspected to have drafted State Question 807 are speaking out about the ballot petition initiative.
Before the authors of State Question 807, previously filed as State Question 806, signed their names to the initiative petition, rumors and speculation ran rampant about who authored the proposed constitutional amendment.

Second wave

State Question 806 was withdrawn, edited and refiled as State Question 807 and another recreational petition, State Question 808, was filed the same day.
Four days after withdrawing State Question 806, a modified version was again filed with the Oklahoma Secretary of State as State Question 807 and another party filed State Question 808 on the same day.

Game plan

A proposed roundtable session to discuss the ballot initiative petition became an anti-State Question 807 session when authors and proponents of that initiative failed to show and the writer of State Question 808 walked out after reading his proposed constitutional amendment.


Purple Tangie Cannabis Co. has taken home prizes in both High Times Cannabis Cup and Cowboy Cup during its first year in business.
When he took the stage at Cowboy Cup to accept the back-to-back awards for best indoor flower and grand champion flower, he did not do so as Jeremy Jones but as Jeremy Purple Tangie.
