Temporary Minor Patient Application Information

What is a medical marijuana temporary minor patient license?

A medical marijuana minor patient license allows a minor with a medical marijuana license from another state to legally buy, use, and grow medical marijuana and medical marijuana products in Oklahoma. These licenses will be in the form of an identification card that can be used to prove that an individual is a license holder. This card will contain the individual’s name, photo, date of birth, city and county of residence, the type of license, the date the license expires, and the unique medical marijuana license number.

The online application system will ask for parent/legal guardian information along with the minor’s information. The name of the parent/legal guardian who signs the minor’s application will be placed on the minor’s patient license.

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

No. However, 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.

Please note that licensed temporary minor patients cannot enter a dispensary without their parent or legal guardian.

How long does a temporary minor patient license last?

Temporary licenses are valid for 30 days, but cannot exceed the expiration date of the out-of-state license. Minors can reapply for another temporary license when their license expires.

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 the patient is not approved to receive a license for any reason, the 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 the application is submitted, it will be reviewed by OMMA staff. If it is deemed complete and meets all requirements, program staff will mail an approval letter with the minor’s and caregivers’ identification card within 14 days of the application submission date.

If the application is incomplete due to unclear or missing information or documents, the patient/parent/legal guardian will receive email correspondence stating the reason(s) it is incomplete and will be able to log back in to the online account to fix these issues. 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, the applicant will be mailed a denial letter stating the reason(s) for denial 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 take marijuana to a processor to be put in a concentrate. Law enforcement may also require individuals to show their identification card.
