Oklahoma hits a major milestone this week as the first cannabis plant has been legally sold to a medical marijuana patient, a Vietnam veteran who is looking for relief from PTSD and other ailments. He purchased the plant at a dispensary in Fairfax and will now have to wait 4-7 weeks for the plant to grow buds to be used in a variety of medications. Medical marijuana patients in Oklahoma can grow up to 12 plants in their homes, 6 seedlings and 6 budding. Patients, dispensaries, and cultivators must grow all their plants in Oklahoma as it is still federally illegal to transport cannabis plants or products across state lines. Patients can purchase a license for $100 every two years.
"I didn't think this was going to happen in my lifetime. And that’s what's so really great about this is, that's why we did the sale. We want everybody to know that yes cannabis is for sale here in Oklahoma. Medical cannabis is for sale,” said Frasure.
Frasure will have to wait another 30-45 days for the plant to start to bud. But, he says, the point is medical marijuana license holders can grow their own now.
