Every Arkansas medical marijuana card is valid for up to one year from the date of its issuance (possibly less than one year if your doctor decides as much). Patients can renew their MMJ cards up to 60 days prior to their expiration dates. Follow these steps to renew your Arkansas MMJ card:

  1. Schedule an appointment with a licensed Arkansas medical marijuana doctor
  2. Attend your appointment and obtain your new Physician Written Certification
  3. Submit your renewal application and pay the $50 fee

To renew your Arkansas medical marijuana card, you’ll need the following forms:

  • Patient registry application form
  • A new Physician Written Certification
  • A photocopy of the front of your Arkansas-issued driver’s license or state ID on a full sheet of paper

It will take up to 14 days for the state to process your renewal application from the date they receive it. Once the state approves you, they’ll send you your new card.
