How to Get a Medical Card in Oklahoma
Medical Marijuana Card Process
Getting a medical marijuana card in Oklahoma takes two things. The first is a physician who will complete a medical form supplied by OMMA. There are two types of forms, one for adults and one for under 18 years of age. The form must be filled out correctly or you will be rejected. Minors will need 2 different physicians to fill out and sign a form. You have up to 30 days to obtain both signatures once the first form is signed. The caregiver part must also be signed by both doctors.
The second thing you need is to complete the application process online. This includes uploading information to the state of Oklahoma as well as your medical form and pictures of you and your identification. This is very important to do correctly or you will be rejected by the state. OMMA does offer videos and instructions online and for those who are uploading it is full of great information. OMMA will take a passport or tribal ID for identification however prefer a drivers license or state ID. We have had some difficulty with Cherokee tribal cards, I don't know why. Self portraits with a white background are also required with no jewelry and no smiling. Both iPhone and Android have passport apps that can help in obtaining the proper picture. Make sure to upload Soonercare or Medicare cards since this drops the state fee to $22.50 compared to $104.50. You can log in to Soonercare and take a screenshot of your account. We do both of these for you and will help out with any problems that come up.
Up to 90% of medications filled in the US are generics. The majority of generics are made in India and China. The FDA does not have much control over these overseas companies. Valsartan is a prime example that has been recalled after a cancer causing agent was found in some of the generic pills. Zantac has also recently been found to contain carcinogens, and these two may be the tip of the iceberg. Who knows how many other generics contain carcinogens.
What is Cannabis?
Cannabis is a genus of flowering plants in the family Cannabaceae. Three species including Cannabis sativa Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis exist. The plant is also known as hemp, although this term is often used to describe plants with low THC that are used for non-medicinal use.
