Tuesday, Stetler said he'd taken calls from interested buyers from Kentucky, Texas and Wyoming, and as far away as Russia and Spain. The callers had questions about whether they would actually be able to buy marijuana legally, and if the shop would have enough of it in stock, he said. Despite the volume of calls, Stetler said he wasn't sure what kind of turnout to expect Wednesday.
“I don't know, to tell you the truth,” he said.
Mark Woodward, a spokesman for the state Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control, said the legalization of marijuana in Colorado will likely lead to more of the drug coming into Oklahoma. The state saw a similar stream of shipments coming from Colorado when medical marijuana was legalized there in 2010, he said.
“We started seeing shipments of high-grade marijuana coming from Colorado into Oklahoma,” Woodward said. “The concern is that it's only going to get worse.”
