How do I apply for a Medical Marijuana Patient License?
You have to be at least 18 years old and a legal Oklahoma resident in order to apply for an Oklahoma medical marijuana patient license. The application must include written approval by an Oklahoma board certified physician. All applications will be approved or denied within 14 days.
Approval is not a Prescription?
Don’t confuse this with a prescription. The Federal Government still considers Marijuana to be a fraud with no medical purpose. A doctor cannot prescribe marijuana, they can only provide you with written approval that you have an ailment that would potentially benefit from medical marijuana.
Is there an exception for people under 18 years old?
There are exceptions for those under 18 years old and for non-residents. A minor’s application must be signed off by two Oklahoma board-certified physicians and a parent or legal guardian. The minor cannot pickup medical marijuana products from the dispensary. This must be done by a parent or legal guardian.
What if I am from another state and have a medical marijuana card from there?
Non-residents with a medical marijuana card from another state can apply for a 30-day temporary patient license.
Are there any specific requirements in order to be eligible?
The only requirement is that an Oklahoma Board Certified Physician must sign-off on your application.
How much does an Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Patient License Cost?
A patient license costs $100, unless you have medicare or medicaid, in which case it costs $20. A temporary license also costs $100, but only lasts for thirty days.
How much can I have?

3 ounces of marijuana on your person (this includes in your vehicle)
8 ounces in your residence
6 mature plants

72 ounces of edibles
