Will legislation that legalizes marijuana usage with a doctor’s recommendation go up in smoke?
Features Clifton Adcock
A state Senate committee bogarted a bill designed to legalize medical
marijuana in Oklahoma by refusing to hold hearings on any of its
assigned legislation this session, effectively keeping the measure
hostage until next session.
Letters to the Editor Ron Ferrell
When I moved to Oklahoma City in the 1980s, there was “liquor by the wink,” and the other loophole was to bring your own bottle in order to have a cocktail, or become a member of that club. Liquor by the drink was illegal, but there were ways around the law.

One new-to-DVD/VOD documentary I’m interested in checking out is “Damn!” It’s not about my favorite expletive, but YouTube sensation Jimmy McMillan.
The founder of the political party known as Rent Is Too Damn High, the 64-year-old New York gubernatorial candidate McMillan seems like quite the character, being a Vietnam vet, black belt karate master, former stripper and 1970s soul singer. He became famous when his televised appearance on the 2010 debates went viral, with more than 2 million views in 24 hours.
A screener’s supposedly coming our way, so expect a review before too long. In the meantime, check out these three deleted scenes from the doc. In the first, he shares a sexual secret; in the second, he demonstrates “verbal judo”; and in the third, he shares his love for Eminem, marijuana and his favorite movie, which is ... um, “Deep Throat.” —Rod Lott
A new TV series explores the medical marijuana industry through the experiences of six Shawnee brothers.
Features Mia Cantu
Prescription marijuana has become a legitimate business, at least in 16
states, where it is legal. Among those reaping profits are six brothers
originally from Shawnee — Joel, Jesse, Jonathan, Jordan, Jared and Josh
Stanley — who now reside in Colorado, where they grow and sell their
harvest of medical cannabis.
