If you’re thinking about joining the thousands of other Oklahomans who own medical marijuana cards, now is the perfect time. In 2018, medical marijuana (MMJ) became legal in the great state of Oklahoma, which means that you can acquire a license to legally grow and consume medical marijuana to help with an existing medical condition. Because MMJ cards are not super expensive to obtain, you may see your physical symptoms improve without a huge drain on your finances. Read on for everything you need to know about owning an Oklahoma MMJ card.

What are the qualifying conditions?

In order to get a medical marijuana card in Oklahoma, you’ll need to have a qualifying medical condition. There’s a pretty wide variety of conditions that you can use MMJ to help with. Some examples of qualifying conditions include epilepsy or other seizure disorders, cancer, HIV/AIDS, Crohn’s disease, and arthritis. Medical marijuana is also known to help with symptoms such as chronic pain, severe nausea, spasticity, and muscle spasms. If you experience these types of symptoms (regardless of which condition is causing them), you might be able to benefit from using MMJ. In order to see if your symptoms help you qualify for an MMJ card, you’ll need to be evaluated by a physician. This medical professional will need to help you complete your application by indicating that you do have a legitimate need for using medical marijuana.

What are the laws surrounding medical marijuana in Oklahoma?

Once you have your valid Oklahoma MMJ card, there are a few laws you’ll need to make sure you’re following. You are permitted to own the following:

● Up to 8 ounces of marijuana in your residence at any time
● Up to 1 ounce of concentrated marijuana
● Up to 72 ounces of edible marijuana (also known as edibles)
● Up to 6 mature plants
● Up to 6 seedling plants

You’re also allowed to carry up to 3 ounces of marijuana with you when you’re away from your residence. Individuals who don’t buy an Oklahoma MMJ card could face a fine-only misdemeanor for having up to 1.5 ounces of herbal cannabis. It’s also important to note that you are not permitted to legally buy marijuana from a dealer or from another MMJ cardholder. Your only legal option is to buy your products from state-licensed dispensaries in your area. If you follow these laws, you’ll be able to use your medical marijuana card in Oklahoma without any issues.

How can you get an MMJ card in Oklahoma?

It’s a fairly straightforward process to purchase an MMJ card in Oklahoma. First, you’ll be required to fill out an application, which can be found online at omma.ok.gov. This application will ask for your full name, residence and mailing address, date of birth, telephone number, and email address. The application also requires your physician to fill out a section of the form and sign it, as well as complete the Adult Patient Physician Recommendation Form. You’ll need to sign the application as well. Completing the application also means you’ll need to submit valid documentation to show your proof of Oklahoma residency. This can be a digital, color copy of one of the following: driver’s license, ID card, voter ID card, a utility bill (or the calendar month preceding the date of application), a residential property deed, or a current rental agreement for residential property. The state also requires you to provide proof of identity, which can be your driver’s license, ID card, US passport, or tribal identification card, along with a color, full-face digital photograph of yourself.
