OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University both say all marijuana, including medical marijuana, remains banned on the two campuses.

OU and OSU said in a joint news release Thursday they are legally required to comply with the Federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act that mandates drug prevention programs and prohibits the use of illegal drugs on campus or at university-sponsored events and activities.

The two must also comply with the Federal Drug-Free Workplace Act that describes the drug-free policies required at workplaces with certain federal contracts.

Students and employees "cannot consume, smoke or possess marijuana on campus" even if they have a prescription.

Oklahoma voters approved medical marijuana during a June election.
