Pre-Registration Requirements and Fees for the MMJ Card Application in Arkansas

Patients must have a qualifying health condition to be eligible for and receive the Arkansas medical marijuana card. Before you schedule your appointment, please review the qualifying health conditions. You must have one or more diagnoses or chronic health conditions required by the Department of Health.

To apply for your Arkansas medical marijuana card, you must:

  • The official written certification (after your health evaluation) from a board-certified physician licensed to practice in Arkansas.

Once you have completed your health evaluation, and if your qualifying health conditions have been successfully certified, you will be required to complete the registration process online. There is a non-refundable fee payable to the Arkansas Department of Health (DOH) of $50 for the application. If approved, a patient may receive their Arkansas medical marijuana card within 10-15 business days.

If you are a caregiver for a patient, you will be required to pay an additional $37 for a criminal background check as part of the medical marijuana card application process. Visiting patients who are not permanent residents of Arkansas can also apply for a 30-day medical cannabis card (if they qualify). There is a $50 registration fee for out-of-state visitors.
