How to Renew Your Arkansas Medical Marijuana Card?
Planning the renewal of your MMJ ID card ahead of your expiration date allows you to assemble the necessary documents before you lose your right to purchase medical marijuana. Submitted documents must be valid and legible. You can apply by mail or online. Both methods require the same documents and information.
Renewal applications have the same components as initial applications. You must provide:
- A completed copy of the registry application form. All fields must be filled in and legible. You can also apply online using your existing login or registering for an online account. The online form will guide you through the required application fields
- A Written Certification Form completed by a medical doctor or an osteopathic physician licensed to practice in Arkansas. You can complete your medical marijuana consultation via telemedicine. The physician will simply need to confirm you still have at least one qualifying condition such as intractable pain, epilepsy, or persistent muscle spasms. The form is only valid for 30 days after the physician signs it. Be sure to have all your other materials ready before you attend your consultation
- A copy of the front of your current Arkansas driver’s license or state ID issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles. Make sure the copy you provide is clear and legible.
Next, you’ll need to mail your paper application, medical marijuana certification, supplemental documents, any state-requested medical records, and application fee in one envelope to the Arkansas Department of Health, 4815 West Markham, Slot 50, Little Rock AR, 72205. Online applicants must upload clear photos of their documents to their registry account. The 14-business-day processing window begins when the state receives your patient application.
Submit Application Fee
Fees for paper applications must be paid by check or money order to the Arkansas Department of Health. Online application fees must be paid by debit or credit card. The state does not accept American Express.
It's important to submit a complete, accurate, and legible application because application fees are non-refundable.
