Senate OKs life in prison for cooking hash in Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY — Converting marijuana to hashish could land Oklahomans a life prison sentence under a bill approved in the Oklahoma Senate.


The Senate voted 44-2 for the bill on Wednesday, which now heads to the House for final consideration. 


The bill was requested by the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, which said the state has seen few cases of hash manufacturing in Oklahoma. 


OBNDD spokesman Mark Woodward said the goal of the bill is to "send a message" that illegal drugs won't be tolerated in Oklahoma. 


Conviction of a first offense of cooking hashish would result in a prison sentence from two years to life in prison. Sentences would be doubled under a second offense, and those convicted would not be eligible for a suspended sentence or probation.

Sad there is still such a lynch mob for mj and mj products.

OK is like the most anti mj in the nation I think.

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

What?!  That is crazy.  I think mj should have been legalized when alcohol was.

I'm such a nerd...I couldn't figure out why Oklahoma would outlaw hash

While not very appealing, life in prison seemed harsh.

Yep, this is just about as dumb as putting someone in jail for 20 years for trying to educate their 5 year old using a bad address.

I'm not a hashish person, but this is one of the reasons I hate Oklahoma. I lived there most of my life, and just find they keep making ridiculous laws that just fill up prisons. Rapists and murderers get out after 7 years, but cooking hashish will get you life in prison.
