Having a valid physician’s medical cannabis certificate and medical marijuana card is the only way to consume cannabis legally in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma’s medical cannabis 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.
Here is a brief overview of the history of medical marijuana laws and legislation in Oklahoma:
- 1933 – outlawed all forms of marijuana.
- June 26, 2018 – voters legalized medical marijuana. The state became the quickest ever to implement an effective medical cannabis law and started accepting applications two months later.
- September 24, 2018 – reduced the penalty for simple possession of marijuana to a fine, capped at $400 (previously, it had been $1,200 and six months in jail.
Under Oklahoma’s SQ 788 and the emergency medical marijuana rules, 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 rejection 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 medical marijuana treatment.
- Visit or have custody of their child without denial only based on patient status.
- Hold a state-issued license without suspension on the sole basis of cardholder status.
The state website does not provide details about what they require from caregivers when they apply, but at the point of application, you must include the medical marijuana license number for the patient for whom you will be acting as a caregiver. Caregivers must be aged 21 years or older and there is no caregiver application fee.
Discover some common qualifying conditions here.
Possession and Growing
Recreational marijuana is illegal. Possession without a license is a fine-only misdemeanor up to 1.5oz.
Qualifying patients can grow cannabis in Oklahoma. Those possessing a state-issued license may possess up to six mature marijuana plants and up to six seedling (immature) plants.
You are over 21
You are stated on the caregiver designation form
You carry your caregiver card and state ID
This reciprocity is one key benefit for medical marijuana users. Unlike recreational cannabis users, medical marijuana users with a medical marijuana card can travel to the states listed above and purchase the medical marijuana they require while they are out of state.
Patients who qualify for a medical marijuana card in another state may apply for a temporary medical marijuana card in Oklahoma. Residents who live 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.
Telehealth services like Leafwell make it easy to get a medical marijuana card, but meeting with a cannabis doctor is only the first part of the process.

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 judgement – much like they do when prescribing traditional medications.
If you’re not sure if your condition can be helped by medical marijuana, we recommend you do some research on our conditions page. After that 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.
How often do I need to renew my Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Card and can I do it online?
Oklahoma medical marijuana certificates are valid for two years. When you use Leafwell to obtain your certificate, we’ll send you a reminder email one month before your card is due to expire to make sure you have plenty of time to submit your renewal application online.
