How to Acquire Your Oklahoma Medical Marijuana License

To buy medical marijuana from an Oklahoma dispensary

you will need a Medical Marijuana Patient License.  The good news for any patients wishing to use cannabis medicinally,  the process to get your OMMA card is very straightforward.

According to the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority a medical marijuana patient license “allows an individual with an approved application to legally buy, use, and grow medical marijuana and medical marijuana products in Oklahoma. This license will be in the form of an identification card that can be used to prove an individual is a license holder. This card will contain the individual’s name, photo, date of birth, city and county of residence, the type of license, the date the license expires, and the patient’s unique medical marijuana license number.” This, along with other application details as well as the application process itself can be found on the OMMA Website.

Step 1: Get an Oklahoma Doctor's recommendation

The first step to acquiring a medical marijuana license is to get a doctor’s recommendation. As most Oklahoma doctors are not signing recommendation forms at the moment, you will need to find a doctor near you that is comfortable with doing so. A list of local registered physicians can be found here.

Your doctor will then need to fill out and sign the Adult Patient Physician Application Recommendation Form, of which a digital copy will need to be submitted with the application via the OMMA online system.  This signed form must be dated within 30 days of the date you apply.

The fee must be paid by MasterCard, Visa or Discover credit or debit card. An additional processing fee will be added to the transaction, and these fees are non-refundable. The payments will not be refunded for applications that are not approved.

If you do not have a debit or credit card, many retail stores and pharmacies have pre-paid Visa or MasterCard cards that applicants can buy and load with the amount of licensing and processing fees. This card can be used for the online transaction.

Step 4: After you apply

Your application will be reviewed by the OMMA once submitted. If the application is complete and meets all of the requirements, you will receive a letter of approval with your new ID card, which will be mailed within 14 days of your application submission date.

If missing or unclear information or missing documents render your application incomplete, you will receive an email stating the reason(s) it has been found to be incomplete. If this occurs, you will be able to log back in to your account to make any corrections necessary. The submission date will be the date that OMMA receives a complete application.

If an application is denied due to all requirements not being met, a denial letter will be sent which will include the reason(s) for the denial, and this will be mailed 14 days within the submission date.

General Information: How long will my license by good for, if approved?

Your license, unless revoked by OMMA for any reason, will be valid for two years.
