Patients Can Use Their Arkansas Medical Marijuana Cards At Oklahoma Dispensaries

With only 11 out of the 32 licensed dispensaries currently open, many parts of Arkansas are left without access to medical cannabis that is close to home for patients. This is leaving many patients with the inconvenience of commuting long distances to visit the nearest dispensary. But did you know Oklahoma accepts valid medical marijuana cards from other states?

Temporary licenses are available for out-of-state patients that are valid for 30 days. This allows patients to buy, use and grow medical marijuana in the state of Oklahoma.

Oklahoma has over 1,600 licensed dispensaries, although not all of them have opened, more than 100 are operating. Our new Fort Smith clinic is just minutes away from the Oklahoma border. A quick trip over the state line can help give Arkansas patients more options and get the treatment they need.

Provided below is a map of Oklahoma medical marijuana dispensaries that are a 30-minute drive or less from Fort Smith.

So what is needed to receive a temporary Oklahoma license? Patients will need their Arkansas medical marijuana card, proof of I.D. and $100 for the application fee. You can find the Oklahoma temporary patient application and additional information here.

However, it is important to remember that it is still illegal to cross state borders with cannabis products, even if medical cannabis is legal in both states.

I have been in the Oklahoma MMJ industry for just shy of 4 years, and this article is not accurate.

Patients from Arkansas CAN NOT use their AR MMJ Card to make a purchase at any dispensary in Oklahoma. What they CAN do, from my understanding, is use their AR MMJ Card in place of a doctors recommendation.

This keeps a patient from having to visit the doctor every time they plan to come to OK and apply for a temporary card to make purchases, but they are still required to apply for a temporary card (at least 2 weeks in advance) every 30 days.
