This receipt allows the patient to possess up to 24 ounces of marijuana and purchase marijuana items from OMMP medical marijuana dispensaries. In additional, a patient is also able to purchase from OLCC retail shops marijuana items tax free. If the patient applied online, the receipts can be printed after you submit your application.

After you apply

After you submit your application, OMMP staff will:

  • Verify the information contained in your application.
  • Conduct a criminal background check on the grower if a grower is being designated.
  • Notify the grower that the $200 grow site fee is due, if applicable.

If all application requirements are met:

  • Your card and your caregiver's card (if you designated a caregiver) will be mailed to you.
  • If you designated a grower, the grower card will be mailed separately to the grower after the grower pays the grow site registration fee.

If all application requirements are NOT met:

  • OMMP staff will send you an "Incomplete Letter" to let you know what needs to be submitted to complete your application. You will have 14 days from the date of the letter to get the missing application materials to OMMP. If the missing application materials are not submitted within the 14 days, your application may be rejected.

Please do not call to check your status prior to 30 days from the date we receive your application. The processing of applications takes time, and the same staff who review your application also answer the phones. The more calls we receive, the slower we process applications.
