Arkansas Medical Marijuana Guide
Arkansas medical marijuana overview
The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment ballot initiative, aka Amendment 98, was approved by 53 percent of voters on November 8, 2016. The measure enables seriously ill patients to legally purchase medical marijuana from a state-licensed dispensary with their doctors’ approval. In 2017, the amendment was revised by state legislators.
In addition to medical marijuana sales being subject to state sales tax, patients, caregivers, and cannabis facilities pay registration fees to the Health Department. All tax revenues from the sale of medical marijuana cover the administrative costs of running the program. Surpluses are distributed to the General Revenue Fund.
The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission is tasked with awarding licenses for cultivation. And the Arkansas Beverage Control Agency is responsible for licensing Arkansas dispensaries. Cultivator and dispensary requirements are the purview of the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration.
Qualifying medical conditions for an Arkansas medical marijuana card

How to get an Arkansas medical marijuana card
In order to apply for an Arkansas medical marijuana card, patients must receive a written certification from a state-licensed medical marijuana doctor with whom they have a bona fide physician-patient relationship.
Patients have 30 days from the date of the written certification to apply for an Arkansas medical marijuana card. The recommendation must be submitted with the application along with a photocopy of an Arkansas driver’s license or state ID.
Applications are processed within 10 to 14 days. Once approved, a physical card will be mailed automatically to the applicant. Cards will not be sent over email, however, patients that applied online can log on to the Arkansas Medical Marijuana System and print a copy of their card.
Arkansas medical marijuana cards are valid for one year from the date of issue OR for an amount of time designated by the patient’s physician. Patients are advised to renew their cards no less than 30 days prior to the expiration date. However, patients may still submit a renewal application after a card has expired.
To renew online patients will need an updated Physician Written Certification, a recent copy of their Arkansas driver’s license or identification card, and a credit/debit card. To renew by mail patients need to submit a Patient Registry Application, updated Physician Written Certification, a recent copy of their Arkansas driver’s license or identification card, plus a check/money order for $50 for patient applications and $87 for caregiver applications.
There is a non-refundable $50 application and renewal fee for both medical marijuana patients and caregivers. Caregivers are also required to pay a fee of $37 for a criminal background check.
Qualified patients under 18 years of age may qualify for an Arkansas medical marijuana card but must assign a legal guardian or parent as a caregiver.
Qualifying patients may designate a caregiver to purchase and administer medical marijuana on their behalf.
Caregivers may serve more than one patient and are required to apply for a registry card and pay a $50 fee for each patient. The card allows the caregiver to purchase up to 2.5 ounces of medical marijuana on behalf of each patient being served.
Complete the designated caregiver application here.
Pennsylvania allows patients to obtain medical marijuana cards via telemedicine. However, not all doctors will agree to a video conference examination.
All information received and records kept by the Arkansas Department Health Medical Marijuana Section are subject to all applicable federal privacy laws, are confidential and exempt from the Freedom of Information Act, and are not subject to disclosure to any individual or public or private entity, except as necessary for authorized employees of the department to perform official duties for the medical marijuana program.
