Frequently Asked Questions About Marijuana in Oklahoma

Is Marijuana Legal in Oklahoma?

Yes, given specific circumstances are met and limitations not exceeded.

When Did Marijuana Become Legal in Oklahoma?

On June 26, 2018, about 57 percent of voters responded to Oklahoma State Question 788 with a "yes".

Where Are the Dispensaries Located?

There are currently no dispensaries in Oklahoma. As State Question 788 is implemented and the regulatory office is established, applications will be approved, and dispensaries will start to be established. The application fee for opening a dispensary is $2,500. Each dispensary will require a pharmacist licensed in Oklahoma as their "Dispensary Manager."

Are They Medical or Recreational Dispensaries?

As of August 2018, only Medical Marijuana is legal, meaning only medical dispensaries are allowed to exist. In 2015, cannabidiol became legalized for all age groups. After the vote in June 2018, anyone over the age of 18 may obtain a prescription given that a doctor recommends marijuana as a reasonable treatment. Those under 18 need the signature of two physicians. Recreational marijuana is not legal in the state.

Who Can Be a Medical Patient in Oklahoma? Who Can Purchase Recreationally?

An Oklahoma Board Certified Physician must be the one who recommends marijuana as a treatment. These doctors must register with the Department of Health if they wish to make these recommendations. The recommendation must be renewed on an annual basis. Conditions included:

  • Alzheimer's
  • Arthritis
  • Crohn's
  • Cancer
  • Seizures

How Do I Become a Medical Patient in Oklahoma?

Medical marijuana is legal in Oklahoma. This law legalized the "cultivation, use, and possession of marijuana for medical purposes." Oklahomans should be able to join the program by late 2018 or early 2019.

Where Can I Consume Marijuana in Oklahoma?

The consumption of medical marijuana will follow the same guidance as public consumption of tobacco. Consuming vaporous marijuana will be illegal in most indoor public locations; businesses, schools, and workplaces all fall under this category. Likewise, public areas such as parks are off limits. The best place to medicate is at a private residence.

How Do I Get A Job in the Oklahoma Marijuana Industry?

The industry is just budding in Oklahoma, and opportunities for employment will not be as widespread as other markets. Despite this, there are companies that are trying to get a head start. In the short term, grow operations will be the first available marijuana jobs. Soon after that, dispensaries and ancillary businesses will be hiring for budtenders, trimmers, and the like. Keep an eye out for more listings later in 2018.

Applicants who wish to open a dispensary must be Oklahoma state residents and must be registered to do business in Oklahoma. Applicants must be age 25 or older.

Non-residents may own no more than 25 percent of a dispensary. Ownership information must be disclosed when applying for an application. Once the dispensary is open, there are rigorous reporting standards that will be created by the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

Is Drug Testing for Marijuana Legal in Oklahoma?

Drug testing is legal in Oklahoma; however, employers are not able to penalize the holder of a medical marijuana card if the substance shows up on a drug test. Furthermore, an employer may not penalize for the possession of a medical marijuana card. If you show up to work high or bring marijuana to work, there could be different outcomes.

Is Marijuana Delivery Legal in Oklahoma?

There is no official ruling on the delivery of cannabis. State Question 788 does allow retailers a transportation license that could eventually be used for these purposes. If the Oklahoma Department of Health limits the number of dispensaries, delivery may be allowed so that larger geographical areas can be serviced.  

How to Pay for Marijuana in Oklahoma Dispensaries?

Most banks are reluctant to work with federally-illegal cannabis companies, so customers typically make purchases with cash.
