Just days after the regulations were approved by the Oklahoma Board of Health, Gov. Mary Fallin has signed a revised set of emergency rules that govern the use of medical marijuana in the state. When signing the legislation on Monday, Fallin described it as "very basic" and "the best option in developing a proper regulatory framework." The new regulations amend or revoke July 10 guidelines that had come under harsh criticism, including eliminating requirements that a pharmacist be in every medical marijuana dispensary and that women of "childbearing age" take a pregnancy test.
