TULSA, Okla. – The owners of an Oklahoma medical marijuana clinic have filed a lawsuit to stop part of a new law from going into effect.
Senate Bill 1030 was signed into law in May. It primarily focuses on zoning rules, however, there is a provision over traffic stops and what happens if a medical marijuana patient does not have their card on them.
“Before Senate Bill 1030, they could either get fined or actually be arrested and put in jail for the weekend,” Sen. Lonnie Paxton told News 4. “So, what Senate Bill 1030 does is it clears all that up and says that, if it’s an ounce and a half of marijuana or less and they don’t have their card with them, they cannot be arrested but they can still be fined.”
