Benefits of Having a Medical Card in Oklahoma
As the owner of an Oklahoma medical card, patients are permitted to possess up to the following:
- Three ounces of marijuana flower on your person
- Eight ounces of marijuana flower in your residence
- One ounce of concentrated marijuana
- Seven ounces of edible marijuana
Recreational marijuana is illegal, and possession without a license to use medicinal marijuana is a fine-only misdemeanor for up to 1.5 ounces. Fines and penalties increase for greater amounts or intent to sell.
To apply for a medical marijuana card in Oklahoma, you must be a legal resident of Oklahoma and provide proof of residency. Patients must be 18 to apply for a medical marijuana card for themselves.
Can Minors Get a Medical Card in Oklahoma?
Patients must be 18 to apply for a medical marijuana card. Minors (anyone under 18) must have a parent or legal guardian consent and apply on their behalf. The parent or guardian will be listed on the minor patient’s license and will be authorized to purchase medical marijuana for the patient.
Some patients may be eligible for an MMJ card but need help to apply for one themselves.
For example, should the patient be a minor under 18, or if the patient needs assistance accessing medical cannabis, a caregiver can be assigned to complete the process on their behalf.
A caregiver must be at least 21. For minors, it is usually the patient’s parent or legal guardian. The caregiver’s name must be specified in the caregiver designation form with the patient’s application. The caregiver receives their own medical marijuana caregiver license, which includes their photo, name, and other details as proof that they are licensed to purchase marijuana. The caregiver card is valid for as long as the patient’s card is valid, no more than two years. A patient can change caregivers during the two years.
The application process is very similar for caregivers in Oklahoma and requires the same ID documents as patients. Caregivers must also include the medical marijuana license number of the patient for whom they will act as a caregiver.
What You’ll Need
To apply for your MMJ card in Oklahoma, you must show your signed certificate, which provides proof of your condition and identification documents. You should gather together the following:
- Photo ID, such as an Oklahoma driver’s license, state ID card, U.S. passport, or Tribal ID card. Minors can use their passport or birth certificates to apply.
- Proof of residency, such as a voter ID card, utility bill, residential property deed, or rental agreement.
- Color, full-face digital photograph.
- A signed physician’s certificate (which can be obtained via Leafwell).
The initial consultation with one of Oklahoma’s healthcare providers via Leafwell’s HIPAA-compliant online consultation service is a flat fee of $99. However, you will not be charged if you do not qualify for an MMJ card and our practitioner does not sign your certificate.
It costs $100 to apply for an MMJ card, payable to the state. This is a non-refundable fee that patients must pay with every application. Each card is valid for two years. Every time you renew, you must meet with a state-licensed physician, in person or via a telemedicine platform like Leafwell, and then update your card via the state website.
Note that Medicaid, SoonerCare, or Medicare enrollees pay a reduced application fee of $20.
There is no additional fee for applications that include a designated caregiver.
Insurance does not currently cover the cost of applying for an MMJ card in Oklahoma because cannabis is illegal at the federal level.
Medical Marijuana Reciprocity
Oklahoma supports an unusual form of reciprocity, allowing visiting patients to access medical cannabis when in the state. According to state law, residents living in another state with a valid MMJ license in their home state may apply for a temporary license to “buy, use, and grow” medical marijuana from an Oklahoma dispensary.
The medical marijuana certificate and MMJ card will be valid for 30 days and cannot exceed the expiration of the out-of-state MMJ card. Visitors can renew their Oklahoma MMJ license every 30 days.
Several other states also practice medical marijuana reciprocity and will recognize an Oklahoma medical marijuana card. The following states and territories accept or recognize out-of-state medical marijuana cards:
- Arkansas *
- Hawaii *
- Michigan (at the dispensary’s discretion)
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey *
- New Mexico
- Puerto Rico
- Rhode Island
- U.S. Virgin Islands *
- Utah * (up to two 21-day periods in a calendar year)
- Washington, D.C.
*Visitors must complete a visiting patient application with the state program.
States that have recreational cannabis for adults 21 and older but do not accept out-of-state cards include:
- Minnesota (currently only tribal dispensaries)
- New York
Where to Buy Medical Marijuana in OK
In all states with a regulated medical program, the only way to purchase marijuana products is via a legally-licensed dispensary, pharmacy, or another legally designated space to buy cannabis.
In Oklahoma, medical marijuana patients may acquire cannabis at a licensed dispensary. The Oklahoma State Department must license all dispensaries to sell medical marijuana products. Medical marijuana users can either visit their nearest dispensary in person or order ahead to pick up conveniently when their products are ready.
When seeking medical marijuana treatment options, it’s a good idea to talk to dispensary staff and ask plenty of questions. These trained professionals can assist you in identifying the best medical-use cannabis products for specific health conditions and address any questions or concerns.
Per Oklahoma law, qualifying patients can grow cannabis in Oklahoma. Those with a state-issued license may possess up to six mature plants and six seedlings.
Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Laws to Know
Under Oklahoma law concerning medical marijuana use, patients who hold a medical marijuana card have the right to:
- Enroll in school without rejection based only on cardholder status.
- Rent an apartment without eviction or refusal based solely on patient status.
- Work at their place of employment without discrimination for having a card or testing positive for marijuana.
- Receive healthcare without disqualification merely due to the medical use of marijuana.
- Visit or have custody of their child without denial based on patient status.
- Hold a state-issued license without suspension on the sole basis of cardholder status.
However, an Oklahoma medical marijuana patient identification card does not necessarily give you the right to:
- Use or possess marijuana at your place of employment without recourse.
- Work, live, or learn somewhere that could face loss of a monetary or licensing benefit under federal law due to your patient status. Those in some federal jobs may find that their patient status clashes with federal laws. This exception also applies to those who require a commercial driver’s license.
- Sell or distribute marijuana to others without a commercial medical cannabis license.
- Own a firearm — many states prohibit those with a medical marijuana card from owning a weapon.
If you’re ready to renew your Oklahoma MMJ card, schedule an appointment with one of Leafwell’s physicians today.

What medical conditions qualify for a Medical Marijuana Card in Oklahoma?
Oklahoma’s law does not include any qualifying conditions. This makes it one of the most lenient medical marijuana programs in the United States and may account for why one in 13 Oklahomans have a medical marijuana card.
Instead, each individual medical marijuana doctor is able to issue certificates based on their own judgment – much like they do when prescribing traditional medications.
If you’re not sure if your condition can be helped by medical marijuana, we recommend doing some research on our conditions page. If you feel that you could benefit from cannabis, book an appointment with one of our online medical marijuana doctors and speak with them about your condition and your research. Then they can either approve or deny you based on their medical experience and your anecdotal evidence.
