Oklahoma health care community

The flood gates are open! The Oklahoma health care community is clowning around, and Ronald McDonald has an offer no one could refuse.

In all seriousness, do bureaucrats really have such an easy time swaying policy in this state? Reading through the back and forth about medical marijuana regulations these past couple of weeks, I’ve been a little confused as to where the involved parties actually stand on executing the will of the voters.

From the wild stuff coming from state employees, to the governor immediately approving and then walking back on the regulations, it’s been a bizarre ride since the June 26 vote on SQ 788. It’s like one of those movies where the characters’ motives are ambiguous to the viewer so that you almost don’t know who the protagonist is. I can’t wait to see how this one ends.
