Oklahoma Watch, a nonprofit media organization, will host a public forum in Oklahoma City to discuss State Question 788, which legalize the licensed cultivation, use and possession of marijuana for medicinal purposes.

The "Oklahoma Watch-Out" forum is free and open to the public and will be held from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 16, at The Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhi Dr.

Featured panelists will include Dr. Jean Hausheer, president of the Oklahoma State Medical Association; Frank Grove, chairman of Vote Yes on 788 campaign and president of the Drug Policy Reform Network of Oklahoma, and a third guest, to be announced, to provide information about legislative efforts to regulate the question should it pass.

Oklahoma Watch Executive Editor David Fritze will moderate the discussion, and audience questions will be allowed. Those interested in attending are encouraged to register at and come with questions.

State Question 788 will appear on the June 26 primary ballot. The forum is intended to inform Oklahomans about the specifics of the proposal, the issues surrounding medical marijuana, and how Oklahoma's question compares with similar measures passed or rejected in other states.
