SAN DIEGO, June 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC:MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States, announced today that the company applauds Oklahoma voters for legalizing medical marijuana in their state.
“The support and education surrounding cannabis in the U.S. is growing exponentially and we’re excited to see yet another state commit to providing its residents with access to this therapeutic plant,” said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. “This vote is especially monumental because of the state’s historically-conservative stance and we look forward to more states on both sides of the political spectrum following suit in the near future.”
The new regulation will legalize the use, sale and growth of medical marijuana in Oklahoma. It requires a medical marijuana license with approval from an Oklahoma board-certified physician. It also establishes a minimum age of 18 for medical marijuana licenses, although younger applicants can receive an exception if a legal guardian and two doctors sign.
Medical Marijuana, Inc. sells hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) products through its distribution subsidiaries HempMeds®,Kannaway® and Phyto Animal Health. These products range from tinctures and liquids to topicals and edibles. The company was the first company to ever bring hemp-based CBD oil products to market in the U.S. in 2012 and the first to receive federal government import approvals in Mexico, Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil.
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, medical marijuana is now legal in some form in 30 states. Nine states and Washington, D.C. allow for recreational use and sales.
