Oklahoma, the country’s fastest-growing medical marijuana state, has decided to accept out-of-state medical marijuana patients. Their state program allows visitors with a valid medical marijuana card to apply for a temporary permit that is good for 30 days. The permits can be renewed monthly.
The fee for a temporary permit is $100, according to 5 News Online. Once approved, permit holders will receive an ID card to use at Oklahoma medical marijuana dispensaries.
As of December 31, 33,099 patient, 231 caregiver and 2,762 business applications received. 36,092 total.
26,603 patient, 162 caregiver, 805 dispensary, 1,302 grower and 341 processor licenses approved. 29,213 total.
