Medical Marijuana Program in Oklahoma
If you’ve been approved, you’ll need to register with the Oklahoma DOH, also known as OMMA. This is the Oklahoma state department which controls medical marijuana.
You will submit your physician recommendation form, which you received from your doctor, along with paying the state application fee. The state fee is currently $100. However, if you have Medicaid, Soonercare, or Medicare enrollment you qualify for a reduced state fee of $20.
To be approved, you must provide proof of residency. Once approved and registered with OK OMMA, your Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Identification Card will arrive in 2 weeks. Once you have your card, you are able to buy cannabis legally from any dispensary in Oklahoma.
Your card is valid for up to 2 years. After two years, you must renew your Oklahoma medical marijuana card.
PrestoDoctor also offers renewals and we can help you get your renewal fast. We’ll contact you when your card is soon to expire to ensure your card remains valid! You are able to renew your card within 30 days of the expiration date.
Oklahoma regulations suggest that patients have a medical condition for which the evaluating physician believes medical cannabis may be a beneficial alternative treatment. Unlike other medical states, Oklahoma does not have a specific list of qualifying conditions for recommending medical cannabis. Your doctor will evaluate your reason for seeking alternative medication during your video appointment. Below are a few examples of conditions which would likely qualify you for the medical program:
- Chronic Pain
- Persistent muscle spasms, including those associated with multiple sclerosis
- Seizures, including, but not limited to, those associated with epilepsy
- Severe nausea
- Opiate/Opioid dependency
- Any other chronic or persistent medical symptom that substantially limits the ability of the person to conduct one or more major life activities
Please keep in mind that the final determination is made by your evaluating doctor. The listed conditions above are subject to change. Ultimately, the decision is based on the doctor’s discretion.
