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State Question 806 was withdrawn, edited and refiled as State Question 807 and another recreational petition, State Question 808, was filed the same day.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.

Once word of State Question 806 began making the rounds, the cannabis sphere was instantly teeming with fury.
