Despite the passage of SQ 788 it is still illegal for most people in Oklahoma to possess drugs (controlled dangerous substances) without a prescription. Most possession and paraphernalia offenses are now misdemeanors, but many are still felonies including Possession with Intent to Distribute, Trafficking, Manufacturing, Possessing Drug Proceeds, and Maintaining a Dwelling for the Purpose of Distributing Controlled Dangerous Substances. Additionally, the Federal Government retains the power to prosecute possessors of drugs (including the operators of dispensaries) under federal law. The Department of Justice currently declines to prosecute such cases where the activity is legal under state law, but that can change on a dime.
If you or a loved one are charged with a drug offense you need counsel immediately because your freedom is at stake. The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world and Oklahoma has the highest incarceration rate in the United States, therefore, Oklahoma has the highest incarceration rate in the world. The judges and juries of this state are not shy about imprisoning people for drug offenses. Don't wait, get counsel today.
