Frequently Asked Questions About Marijuana in Oklahoma

Is Marijuana Legal in Oklahoma?

Yes, marijuana is legal for cardholders of a current medical marijuana card.

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". Emergency rules were added soon after that, but there are still details that need to be clarified.

Where Are the Dispensaries Located?

There are currently a few dispensaries open in Oklahoma. The state has licensed 743 medical marijuana dispensaries in Oklahoma, though only a few dispensaries are selling medical marijuana as of mid-December 2018. The application fee for opening a dispensary is $2,500. There are currently dispensaries in Tulsa and Muskogee County, but it’s unclear whether these dispensaries are officially licensed by the state. More dispensaries are set to open in January 2019 in cities like Broken Arrow, Osceola, and Edmond.

Are They Medical or Recreational Dispensaries?

As of December 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 recommendation from a doctor for marijuana as a reasonable treatment. Those under 18 need the signature of two physicians. Recreational marijuana is not legal in the state.

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 current 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 budtenders, trimmers, and the like. Many dispensaries will be opening for business in January 2019, so opportunities should start popping up.

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 Do I Pay for Marijuana in Oklahoma Dispensaries?

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