A constitutional petition would make marijuana legal for citizens 21 and older and allow for commercial entities to set up a recreational marijuana industry in the state.
The petition requires about 124,000 signatures to put the question on the November 2018 ballot. If approved by voters, no legislative changes could be made.

Oklahoma voters just passed a medical marijuana law. Another initiative — for recreational use — might be on the ballot in November.
"That is not a negotiable point. That is really a demand on our part that it be pulled from the dispensaries," Jean Hausheer, a Lawton-based ophthalmologist who is president of the Oklahoma State Medical Association, told the Tulsa World Monday afternoon. The state Board of Health will vote Tuesday on whether to adopt the proposed emergency draft rules.
