How Oklahoma's cannabis businesses could change if recreational cannabis is legalized

When Oklahoma voters passed State Question 788 in 2018, things were a bit chaotic.

People had questions about how pot businesses would grow in the market. And with very little regulation, the number of cannabis businesses exploded. By 2020, Oklahoma had more businesses licensed to sell pot than any other state in the country.

"There was a lot of early confusion about what's allowed, what's not," said Blake Cantrell, CEO of The Peak dispensary in Oklahoma City. "Granted, it also came with a lot of excitement. Everybody, including patients, was excited about the new program and couldn't wait to see how it developed."

Now, similar questions are brewing. Voters will head to the polls on March 7 to decide on State Question 820.
