Tulsa Lawyer Thinks Outside the Box

If you’ve seen a yellow, 1975 VW van around Tulsa – the one with the marijuana leaves decorating it – you may have spotted the rolling advertisement of attorney Sabah Khalaf. In a creative bit of marketing, Khalaf has his contact information and the phrase, “Until it’s legal, there’s Sabah Khalaf.”

The eye-catching vehicle might be the best way to reach potential clients, even if they only remember “that dude with the van.” A quick internet search will find his practice as part of the Garrett Law Center.

According to reporting in Tulsa World, Khalaf is firmly opposed to the current marijuana laws in Oklahoma. He said he believes the laws are a “waste of resources.” This alone would put him in alliance with proponents of marijuana reform, and his skills as a criminal defense attorney means he can defend his beliefs in court.

Interestingly, Khalaf comes from the other team – he used to prosecute drug offenses when he worked for the Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office. So he’s familiar with serious drug crimes, like trafficking, and what he feels doesn’t deserve as much attention – simple possession cases.

With marijuana now legal for adults in our neighbor state of Colorado, Oklahoma citizens may take a chance and a drive to buy weed retail. That same marijuana then becomes a criminal offense if it is brought back into our state. As long as this difference in laws remains, Khalaf may have more work than he can handle.

On the other hand, the nationwide trend seems to be toward relaxing the laws on marijuana use, both for medical purposes and recreational. If the trend continues, Khalaf may be out of a job. But reading his comments, it appears that situation would be fine with him. After all, there’s no shortage of other charges to defend clients against.
