Arkansas Department of Health Approves Medical Marijuana Evaluations Through Telemedicine


The Arkansas Department of Health has approved temporary changes to the medical marijuana program due to the continuation of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.


The Department of Health has approved a new guideline that provides an extension for medical marijuana patient and caregiver expiration dates as their cards will not expire during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Medical marijuana evaluations through telemedicine will now temporarily be allowed as well. This will enable patients to meet virtually with a doctor and receive their certification for medical marijuana treatment in order to reduce exposure and maintain social distancing practices.


Due to this update, Arkansas Marijuana Card will now be conducting evaluations with telemedicine for new patients and renewals! If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at 844-249-8714 or schedule online.
