In June, by a 57-43 margin, Oklahoma voters approved State Question 788, which will allow patients to possess, cultivate, and purchase medical marijuana with a doctor’s approval. On the heels of this victory, at least two other states — Utah and Michigan — will vote on major marijuana policy reforms this year. MPP is supporting efforts in Michigan to regulate marijuana like alcohol and in Utah to create a medical marijuana program. Signature validation is also underway for marijuana policy reform initiatives in Missouri and North Dakota, so stay tuned to this page for updates.


Backed by the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, Michigan’s initiative to legalize, regulate, and tax marijuana has advanced to the November ballot. To learn more about the initiative, get involved, or make a donation to support the campaign, visit the campaign’s website.
After receiving well over the number of required signatures, the medical cannabis initiative backed by the Utah Patients Coalition was certified for the November ballot by Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox in May. To learn more about the initiative, get involved, or make a donation to support the campaign, visit the campaign’s website.

Donations to MPP will be used to generally support MPP’s efforts nationwide and are are not earmarked to support activity in any one state. If you would like to support an initiative in a specific state, please donate directly to that state’s campaign committee.
