What is a medical marijuana minor patient license?

A medical marijuana minor patient license allows an individual under the age of 18 to legally possess, use, and grow medical marijuana and medical marijuana products in Oklahoma. These licenses will be in the form of an identification card. The card will contain the minor patient’s name, photo, date of birth, city and county of residence, the type of license, date of expiration, and the minor patient’s unique medical marijuana license number.

The online application system will ask for parent/legal guardian information along with the minor’s information. Please note that licensed minor patients cannot enter a dispensary without a parent or legal guardian.

Can parents and legal guardians get a caregiver license for a minor?

The name of the parent/legal guardian who signs the minor’s application will be placed on the minor’s temporary patient license so the parent/legal guardian can buy medical marijuana for the minor.

The caregiver license allows an individual to assist a homebound patient with the purchase, application, and administration of medical marijuana. A caregiver license is available to designated individuals of patients of all ages who are homebound. Only patients who have a physician certification of their medical need for a caregiver may have a licensed caregiver; the status of the applicant as a minor alone does not qualify the applicant for a caregiver. For more information, see Caregiver Application Information.

How long does a minor patient license last?

A minor patient license is valid for two years from the date it is issued, or until the patient turns 18, whichever happens first.

How much does the application cost?

The standard application fee is $100. Minor patients who provide acceptable proof of Medicaid (SoonerCare) or Medicare enrollment will pay a reduced fee of $20. Application fees will be paid by Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit or debit card. An additional credit card processing fee will be added to the transaction. These application and processing fees are non-refundable. The payment will not be refunded for applications not approved.

What if I don’t have a credit card?

Many retail stores have pre-paid MasterCard or Visa cards available for purchase. Applicants who do not have access to a personal credit card may purchase one of these pre-paid cards and load the amount of the licensing and processing fees at the store. The card may then be used for the online transaction.

What do minors need to get from their doctor?

Minors must obtain a recommendation for medical marijuana from two physicians. The first physician must fill out the Minor Patient First Physician Recommendation Form and the second physician must fill out the Minor Patient Second Physician Recommendation Form. Both forms must be provided in the online application. Link to forms.

The forms must be dated within 30 days of each other, and the second form must be dated within 30 days of the application submission date. For example, if the first physician signs the recommendation form on September 30, the second physician must sign the second form by October 30, and the application must be submitted by November 29.

What happens after I apply?

Once the application is submitted, it will be reviewed by the OMMA. If it is deemed complete and meets all requirements, program staff will mail an approval letter with the minor’s identification card within 14 days of the application submission date.

If the application is incomplete due to unclear or missing information or documents, the applicant will receive email correspondence stating the reason(s) it is incomplete and will be able to log back in to the online account to make corrections. The patient’s submission date is the date the application is complete.

If the application is reviewed and denied because the applicant does not meet all the requirements, a denial letter stating the reason(s) for denial will be mailed to the applicant within 14 days of submission.

Who will check my license identification card?

Minor patients and their identified parent/legal guardian should show the medical marijuana identification card and another form of identification to purchase medical marijuana at a dispensary or any time marijuana is taken to a processor to be put into concentrate. Law enforcement may also require individuals to show identification cards.
