Oklahoma court: Weed question won't make November ballot
The Oklahoma Supreme Court says a proposed state question on whether to legalize the recreational use of marijuana won't appear on the November ballot.
The state's highest court on Wednesday denied a request by supporters to require the State Election Board to put the question on the general election ballot.
Supporters got enough signatures from registered voters to qualify the question for the ballot.
But because it took longer than usual to verify the signatures and several legal challenges were filed challenging the question, there wasn't enough time to resolve the challenges and get the ballots printed in time for November.
The question will appear on the next general election ballot or a special election if called by the governor.
