Find a Doctor
You will be able to get an MMJ card in Arkansas with written certification from a licensed physician. The physician in question must be a doctor of medicine or osteopathy licensed in Arkansas, be in good standing to practice medicine in the state, have a controlled substance license on file with the DEA, and have a bona fide physician-patient relationship with you. You will go through a physical examination, and the doctor will decide if you are eligible for a MMJ card.
Submit your application to the Arkansas Department of Health
The certification you receive from the doctor is only valid for 30 days, so you need to submit your application as soon as possible. If you fail to do it within the allotted time frame, you must get a new certification. Go to the ADH website to apply online; although, you also have the option of downloading the form and sending it via regular mail.
The application itself is rather straightforward, and all of the requirements are clearly laid out.
Along with the Physician Written Certification, you need a photocopy of your state ID or driver’s license.
*The ADH does not specify how long you can expect to wait for your MMJ card, but it does state that your card will be valid for one year. You are allowed to buy up to 2.5 ounces from a licensed dispensary every 14 days.
**We have also been told then once approved, you have the option of downloading your card and printing immediately for use so don’t have to wait for a copy from the state!
