Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill on March 30th restricting how close medical marijuana growers can be to a public or private school, said Tulsa medical marijuana attorney Stephen Cale. The law went into effect immediately upon the governor’s signing.
With the signing of SB 1511, Oklahoma medical marijuana farms may not be located within 1,000 feet of a public or private school. The distance is measured from the nearest property line of the school to the nearest property line of the grower’s licensed premises. Redundantly, the new law states that the marijuana farm may not adjoin or be on school property.
The new law does not apply to medical marijuana growers licensed before the law went into effect
School property that is not being used for classroom instruction on core curriculum does not count as school property unless that property is on the same campus as a building used for classroom instruction. For example, a school administrative building located off campus would not qualify as a school.
