Oklahoma Smokes are rolled with hemp flowers, so they’re completely free of both nicotine and tobacco. This organically grown hemp is rich in CBD and provides a tasty and satisfying smoke. It’s nearly identical to a traditional cigarette, but it contains no tobacco, nicotine, or other additives.

These hemp cigarettes are shown to be an effective quitting aid, particularly when used in conjunction with other aids like nicotine patches or gum. And Oklahoma Smokes runs its hemp through an extensive laboratory testing process that ensures each cig is free of pesticides and other chemicals.

A violent trend of imposter law enforcement agents hit at least three medical cannabis businesses in various counties throughout Oklahoma.

On March 13, a group of six individuals—donned in believable law enforcement gear—furnished a fake search warrant and attempted to raid a Hughes County, Oklahoma medical cannabis grow operation in a brazen attack. The next day, other locations were hit including a medical cannabis business in Seminole County. Over 100 pounds of cannabis, machines, cash and cell phones were stolen. Law enforcement agents believe the rash of incidents are connected.


Oklahoma lawmakers look to create nation's first marijuana banking system


Oklahoma Lawmakers okayed a bill to establish the country’s first marijuana banking system in the Sooner State.  

The big banking problem for the medical marijuana industry remains the drug is illegal on the federal level, making any money touching it illegal in the eyes of the feds.  

Now, Oklahoma lawmakers are looking to crypto currency as a blueprint to get around federal banking laws.  

“This is based on the real dollar, we just stole their method that they were using,” Rep Justin Humphry, R-Lane, said.  

He said his bill would bring Medical Marijuana banking into the 21st century.  

“Kind of like the ideal of a credit card, so if you swipe a credit card it is a digital process,” he said.  


Package of bills will better regulate Oklahoma medical marijuana, lawmakers say



Oklahoma House Republicans are moving forward with a package of bills aimed at better regulating medical marijuana in the state.

That includes cutting out illegal growing operations.

"Illegal marijuana grows end now. The black market isn't a free market," House Majority Floor Leader Jon Echols, R-Oklahoma City, said in a news release. "This comprehensive plan aggressively attacks the spread of illegal marijuana operations statewide, as the people of Oklahoma have demanded."

The lawmakers held a news conference Monday to discuss their 12-point plan:


Toke-lahoma becomes a target for lawmakers

Oklahoma city

More than 100 marijuana-related bills have been filed, many seeking to restrict Oklahoma's booming medical program.

Staunchly conservative Oklahoma has emerged as an unlikely weed utopia with more than 12,000 cannabis businesses and the nation’s highest per capita rate of medical marijuana patients.

While other states have embraced tight restrictions on weed businesses, Oklahoma has become the nation’s test case for unfettered cannabis capitalism, placing few limits on licenses.

That could soon change.


Companies attempt to gobble up market share as Oklahoma's cannabis industry matures


The rush to put down dispensary roots three years ago has led to about 2,000 dispensaries doing business in Oklahoma.

It was a modern-day land run as many sought to stake a claim in the booming industry with just one small storefront, staffed by the owner and a couple of employees. But now, as the industry matures and entrepreneurs find their niche in the market, and the state ramps up enforcement efforts on ownership laws, a fight is emerging over market share as companies attempt to expand their footprint into multiple stores across multiple markets.

One business, Apothecary Farms had two grand openings last week alone.


Oklahoma lawmaker hopes to tighten medical marijuana regulation

Oklahoma needs to move on from the “Wild West” that emerged with legalization of medical marijuana by strengthening regulation of the industry, a state lawmaker said.

State Rep. Sean Roberts, a Republican from Hominy, said Wednesday that he’ll introduce legislation this year to modify both the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana and Patient Protection Act and Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Waste Management Act. Goals are to cut down on illegal cultivation of marijuana and to address rising influences of “foreign actors” on state interests.


Second petition filed to legalize recreational cannabis in Oklahoma



Oklahomans could see on the ballot this year competing state questions to legalize recreational marijuana. 

A second initiative petition to legalize recreational marijuana use in Oklahoma for anyone 21 years or older was filed Tuesday with the secretary of state's office.

Campaign spokeswoman Michelle Tilley said this measure is a new version of a recreational cannabis initiative petition she helped with two years ago. That petition, State Question 807, didn't make it on the statewide ballot partly because the start of the COVID-19 pandemic made it difficult to collect signatures. 

"This is an effort that started several years ago but has grown," she said.

Oklahoma County authorities found two moonshine stills and a marijuana grow in the home of a Harrah man after a four-hour standoff Wednesday afternoon.

The negotiator KFOR spoke with, Michael Davenport, said the call started out as a suicidal person. After some time on the phone with the man, it came to a peaceful end.

“I don’t know if he’s a good guy, bad guy or any other guy, he’s a person in crisis and he needs some help and we’re all human beings,” said Davenport, a 10-year veteran negotiator with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office.
