How To Get A Medical Marijuana Card In Oklahoma

Please note: The following information shows how to get a medical marijuana card for cannabis in Oklahoma. 

With Oklahoma's new medical marijuana laws many consumers are confused on how to begin the process of getting a medical marijuana card. The following information explains the necessary steps to receive your medical card. Check our site, or sign up for emails in any our dispensaries, to stay informed on any changes. We post our patient drives on our home page which take place at our corporate office at 15th and Utica. The patient drives offer you the opportunity to see a doctor for only a $60 fee. Staff will also be available to those wishing to have additional help in applying online once you receive your doctor's recommendation. For an additional $30 fee, we will take your picture; assist with filling out all paperwork and submission of your application online after seeing the doctor.

To apply for the card complete the following steps.

Step One: Choose a Physician

Make sure the physician you choose is willing to talk with you concerning your medical cannabis needs. To get a recommendation all you need is a state - licensed physician willing to give you one. There are family doctors that are not comfortable at dealing with medical marijuana. Not all physicians are willing to recommend it to their patients. Don't be too concerned though. There are still many Oklahoma physicians willing to work with patients concerning medical cannabis.

Step Two: Make a Doctor’s Visit at a local physicians office or our Patient Drives.

When you see the physician bring a blank copy of the OMMA's Physician Recommendation Form. This form will already be given to your physician if you go to a Doctor Green patient drive event, held at our corporate office. Please note: You cannot obtain a card at our dispensaries. 

Most states that have medical marijuana require patients to have a documented condition that would show cause for needing medical marijuana. Oklahoma DOES NOT require this. It does not carry such a list. If an Oklahoma doctor believes that medical cannabis will help their patient with the condition they suffer from then they are free to prescribe it. Now take note that this process is only available to persons 18 or older. You have 30 days to complete the online application form within 30 days of your doctor's signature on his recommendation form.

Step Three: Online Application

You can go online to the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) to their website to submit your application. Here’s the info you’ll need to enter:

Step Four: Make the payment

The  application cost is $100.  If you are enrolled in Medicaid (SoonerCare) or Medicare enrollment, the price is reduced to $20.

Step Five: Wait

Once your qualified, the state of Oklahoma states that your card will be mailed within 2 weeks. Your card is good for two years, unless the OMMA revokes it.

Step Six: Make a trip to your local Dispensary.

You have to wait until you receive your OMMA card to purchase cannabis products from the dispensary.

The state of Oklahoma is currently approving medical marijuana cards to Oklahomans at a rate of 10,000 per month. The main reason for the large approval numbers is the state’s efficient online process for application. Oklahoma has a quick and pretty simple way of applying for medical cannabis cards compared to other states. But it’s not an overnight process.
