In order to purchase cannabis in Oklahoma, you must have your medical marijuana card. Oklahoma is currently not a recreational or adult use state so there are many benefits for having your Oklahoma medical cannabis card. Besides the fact that with an Oklahoma medical marijuana card you can buy medical marijuana products, you will also access other benefits from being a certified patient.
The only people who can legally possess marijuana are certified patients or caregivers that are registered with OMMA. Patients and caregivers can possess up to:
- 3 ounces of usable cannabis on your person
- 8 ounces at home
- 1 ounce of cannabis concentrate
- 72 ounces of edible cannabis product
You may have protection from law enforcement when you have your medical cannabis card. A medical cannabis card shows law enforcement you have a medical condition and you are not a recreational user, but a verified patient who uses medical cannabis to treat a condition.
Medical marijuana patients are also allowed to grow six mature plants and six seedlings (non-flowering).
There are a few rules for cultivation and where you are allowed to grow. Medical marijuana can not be accessible, or visible to the general public or non-medical cannabis patients. Medical cannabis patients and caregivers can also not use any extraction equipment or process products using potentially hazardous material.
OMMA does not charge any additional fees for home cultivation. If you are a certified medical cannabis patient you may cultivate your own cannabis plants.
Becoming a medical marijuana patient in Oklahoma ensures you will have privacy and rights when using cannabis. The OMMA (Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority) provides “no discrimination” against employees based on their medical marijuana patient status. This means, medical cannabis patients cannot be fired, hired, or penalized based on medical marijuana use.
However, as of 2022, Oklahoma state law has said employers can reject an applicant for a safety sensitive job if the applicant tests positive for marijuana in their pre-employment drug testing. Safety sensitive jobs typically mean operating machinery or a job that requires an employees full unimpaired skills.
To be a medical cannabis patient, you can become one at age 18 as long as you have a physicians recommendation that verifies you have a qualifying condition.
Reciprocity Benefits in Oklahoma
Reciprocity is when a medical marijuana program in one state recognizes a medical marijuana certified patient from another state. In short, if you have a medical cannabis card in another state you may use medical marijuana when traveling to another state with reciprocity.
Not every state offers reciprocity, but luckily Oklahoma has great reciprocity rules. Residents of other states who have their medical cannabis license in their state are eligible for Oklahoma’s 30 day adult or minor out of state patient license. Patients must fill out the Temporary Patient Application Information form to register and then legally purchase Oklahoma medical cannabis.
