Legislative Updates

Quick Links


Background

The Oklahoma Legislature’s annual regular session is February through May. The Legislature considers thousands of bills during each session, some of which are relevant to OMMA. Bills are considered first in legislative committees that vote on which bills to send for consideration by the full state House of Representatives and Senate.

Bills approved by both the House and Senate go to the Governor for consideration. If the Governor signs (or declines to veto) a bill, it becomes state law. If the Governor vetoes a bill, it does not become state law unless the Legislature overrides the veto.

OMMA then uses the process of drafting rules to comply with these new state laws. Our current rules are listed on our Rules page.

OMMA Chief of Staff Barrett Brown explains the legislative process in the video above.


Medical Marijuana Legislation (2024)

Oklahoma legislators have authored the following medical marijuana-related bills for consideration during the 2024 regular session that ends in May. The sheer number of bills and amendments during the legislative process means there may also be other bills affecting the industry that are not on this list.

The list is for informational purposes only – it’s not an indication that OMMA supports or opposes any of the bills or their contents.

For convenience, the bills are grouped by the main subject area affected by the proposed legislation.

This list will be updated about once a week during the session. The date of the latest update is at the bottom of the page. Click the link on the bill number for the latest information from the Oklahoma Legislature's bill tracking website.
