Oklahoma to allow out-of-state residents to apply for temporary medical marijuana licenses

People from out-of-state can apply for a temporary medical marijuana license in Oklahoma as long as they have a valid license from another state.

Although the process implementing medical marijuana in Arkansas has been slow, Oklahoma has made quick work of their program after voters approved it in June of 2018.

Now, the state of Oklahoma is allowing people who don't live in the state to apply for temporary medical marijuana licenses. This temporary license offers people with a valid marijuana license from another state to buy, use and even grow medical marijuana in Oklahoma.

The ID card would only be valid for 30 days but it is renewable. A $100 application fee is required for the temporary license. You will need proof of identity as well as your medical marijuana license and a photograph of yourself.

In Arkansas, it has been over two years since voters approved medical marijuana in the state. Officials estimate that medical marijuana will be available to the public in April 2019.

A total of 6,457 Arkansans have been approved for medical marijuana.

As of 3 p.m. on Jan. 2, the cards have not been distributed in Arkansas.
