Signatures are being gathered up until almost the last moment, but those seeking legalization of medicinal marijuana in Oklahoma intend to turn in petitions tomorrow. Lisa Bowman is a spokeswoman with the Drug Policy Reform Network of Oklahoma. She believes the number of just over       150-thousand signatures will be reached, but they will have to be certified by the Secretary of State’s Office.

Those supporting legalizing marijuana for medical purposes will rally at the state capitol tomorrow afternoon as petitions are turned over to the Secretary of State.
