What is a medical marijuana temporary adult patient license?
A medical marijuana temporary adult patient license allows an individual with a medical marijuana license from another state to legally buy, use, and grow medical marijuana and medical marijuana products in Oklahoma. This license will be in the form of an identification card that can be used to prove an individual is a license holder. This card will contain the patient’s name, photo, date of birth, city and county of residence, the type of license, the date the license expires, and the patient’s unique medical marijuana license number.
How long does my patient license last?
Temporary licenses are valid for 30 days, but cannot exceed the expiration date of the out-of-state license. You can reapply for another temporary license when your license expires.
How do I apply?
Applications and payment will be collected through an online system. This system will be available at omma.ok.gov by August 25, 2018. You will need a valid email address to login to this system. This email address will be used to send you notices once you create an account.

- Your residence and mailing address
- Your date of birth
- Your telephone number and email address
- Information about your out-of-state medical marijuana license

How much does the application cost?
The temporary license application fee is $100. There are no reduced fees for temporary patients. Application fees will be paid by Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card. An additional credit card processing fee will be added to the transaction. These application and processing fees are non-refundable. If you are not approved to receive a license for any reason, your payment will not be refunded.
What if I don’t have a credit card?
Many retail stores have pre-paid Visa or MasterCard cards available for purchase. Applicants who do not have access to a personal credit card may purchase one of these pre-paid Visa or MasterCard cards and load the amount of the licensing and processing fees at the store. The card may then be used for your online transaction.
What happens after I apply?
Once you submit your application, it will be reviewed by OMMA staff. If it is deemed complete and meets all requirements, program staff will mail you an approval letter with your identification card within 14 days of your application submission date.
If your 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 fix these issues. Your submission date is the date you provide a complete application.
If your application is reviewed and denied because you do not meet all the requirements, you will be mailed a denial letter stating the reason(s) for denial within 14 days of submission.
Who will check my license identification card?
You should show your medical marijuana identification card and another form of identification any time you purchase medical marijuana at a dispensary or take marijuana to a processor to be put in a concentrate. Law enforcement may also require that you show your identification card to prove that you are licensed to legally use and possess medical marijuana.
