FAQs

When and where will applications be available?

Who will be in charge of approving medical marijuana licenses?

The OSDH will create a regulatory office to oversee the program. This office will receive all licensing applications related to medical marijuana including patients, caregivers, growers, processors, transporters and dispensaries.


How long will it take for me to receive approval from OSDH?

The OSDH will respond to all applicants within 14 days on the denial or approval of your completed application packet. 


How much does a patient medical marijuana license cost?

The license application fee will cost $100 and need to be renewed every two years. For Medicaid/SoonerCare or Medicare enrollees, the license application fee will cost $20. 


What do I need from my physician to get a patient license?

For a patient to get a license, Oklahomans 18 and older would need to get a physician’s signature attesting that they need medical marijuana. Oklahomans under the age of 18 must get two physicians’ signatures. This must be documented on an official OSDH form that will be available on the program website, omma.ok.gov


What if I need a caregiver to help me?

Under certain circumstances, a license may be provided to a designated caregiver of a licensed patient. Information will need to be provided to support this need. 


What is the process for growers, processors, transporters, and dispensaries to obtain a license?

On July 26, application information and requirements for these licenses will be available at omma.ok.gov. Applicants must be at least 25 years old, reside in Oklahoma, and must be registered to conduct business in the state as well as meet other licensing requirements. Entities can have ownership consisting of no more than 25% ownership by non-Oklahoma residents. The license application fee for growers, processors, and dispensaries will be $2,500.

OSDH will continue to provide the most up to date information as the program is fully implemented. Please check omma.ok.gov or email omma@ok.gov for updates.
