Who will be in charge of approving medical marijuana licenses?
The Oklahoma State Department of Health established the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority (OMMA) to oversee the medical marijuana program. This office receives all licensing applications related to medical marijuana, including patients, caregivers, growers, processors, dispensaries, and researchers.
Where will applications be available?
All applications will be submitted electronically to the OMMA. Application information and requirements are available online at omma.ok.gov.
How long will it take to receive approval from OMMA?
Once the application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by the OMMA. If it is deemed complete and meets all requirements, an approval letter with your license will be mailed within 14 days of the application submission date.
If an application is incomplete due to unclear or missing information or documents, you will receive email correspondence stating the reason(s) it is incomplete. You will be able to log back in to your account to make corrections once you receive this email (but not before). The submission date is the date a complete application is provided.
If an application is reviewed and denied because all requirements have not been met, a denial letter stating the reason(s) for denial will be mailed within 14 days of submission.
How much does a patient medical marijuana license cost?
The license application fee is $100. For Medicaid/SoonerCare or Medicare enrollees, the license application fee is $20.
Why is my application payment not going through?
Step 1: Check to ensure the correct billing address and zip code for the credit/debit card has been entered.
Step 2: Check to ensure the credit card number, expiration date, and CVV code is entered in the correct fields and in the correct format.
Step 3: If the information entered in step 1 and 2 is correct, contact the issuing bank at the number located on the back of the card to investigate why the payment attempt was not successful. The issuing bank may need to increase your daily limit, or the issuing bank can provide instruction on how to make a successful payment.
Step 4: If the above steps are unsuccessful, try using a prepaid Visa, MasterCard, or Discover debit or credit card. Please note some prepaid cards charge an activation fee. Make sure to purchase a card with the correct amount that will cover the card activation, the application, and processing fees.
What do I need from my physician to get a patient license?
For a patient to get a license, Oklahomans age 18 and older must obtain a signed Adult Patient Physician Recommendation Form. Oklahomans under the age of 18 must get two physicians’ signatures. This must be documented on the Minor Patient Physician Recommendation Forms.
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. Caregiver Application Information is available at omma.ok.gov.
What is the process for growers, processors, transporters, and dispensaries to obtain a license?
Application information and requirements for licenses are available at omma.ok.gov. In addition to other licensing requirements, applicants must be at least 25 years old, reside in Oklahoma, and the entities must be registered to conduct business in the state. At least 75 percent of the ownership of entities must be by Oklahoma residents. The license application fee for growers, processors, and dispensaries is $2,500.
The OMMA will continue to provide the most up to date information as the program is fully implemented. Please visit omma.ok.gov for updates.
