Petition to lessen punishment for marijuana in Oklahoma City gains momentum
OKLAHOMA CITY —A local group said Saturday that a petition to change the penalty for possession of marijuana in Oklahoma City is gaining traction quickly.
“The purpose of the petition in Oklahoma City is to take away jail time for the simple possession of marijuana,” said petition proponent Mark Faulk.
If passed, the measure would make the punishment for possession of marijuana similar to a traffic violation.
“It will reduce it basically to a traffic ticket, $500 or less,” Faulk said.
Those who filed the petition said they were on pace to surpass their goal for signatures.
“We have (obtained) between 1,000 and 1,500 signatures within one week,” Faulk said.
