Growing Marijuana In Oklahoma

Oklahoma has made some big changes in their marijuana laws the last few years. It’s now easier to access if you have a medical need, and the laws are less aggressive toward the casual user.

While recreational marijuana is still illegal in this state, the new laws make Oklahoma a lot more weed-friendly.

For the most benefits, you’ll need to be a patient. Medical users can grow their own cannabis and consume a variety of forms of the herb. If you aren’t already a registered patient in Oklahoma, now is the time to consider getting a recommendation.

oklahoma marijuana laws

What’s not a misdemeanor is selling marijuana or creating concentrates. Being convicted of these things could lead to anywhere from two years to life in prison.

Keep in mind, Oklahoma still has mandatory minimums. This means certain conditions have non-negotiable jail time. Plus, any conviction, either a misdemeanor or felony, could cause your driver’s license to be suspended for up to three years.

If you intend to stay legal in Oklahoma, you need to have a recommendation from a doctor. There are no specific qualifying conditions, but you’ll need to register with the state.

Patients can possess up to eight ounces of marijuana, one ounce of concentrated marijuana and up to 72 ounces of edibles in their residence. Outside of the home, the limited is 3 ounces of marijuana at a time.

    Fines and taxes

    As a medical marijuana state, Oklahoma has different rules for those with a medical need for marijuana than those who use marijuana recreationally.

    Those in possession of marijuana without a state-issued medical license, could face misdemeanor charges. If you have less than 1.5 ounces of flower, you’ll only pay a fine.

    However, if you have any amount greater than that (or anything other than flower), it is a lot worse.

    You could face jail time and potentially have to pay a marijuana tax. You could also lose your property, as Oklahoma allows forfeiture for marijuana convictions.

    Medical marijuana users in Oklahoma can grow up to six mature plants (flowering). They can also possess up to six seedlings (vegetative). Currently, there are no other requirements as to how and where the marijuana is grown.

    Growing marijuana in Oklahoma without a medical recommendation, on the other hand, is a felony. If you decide to go this route, you definitely do not want to get caught as prison time starts at 20 years.

    However, you could face a potentially lesser charge if you grow small amounts on your own land. For more on stealth growing, download and read the Marijuana Grow Bible.

      1. They need to change the law so that card holders can exchange some of what they grew with other cardholders. That way you could sample different strains. OK. Is the only state that doesn’t allow that.

      2. Pat, Contact your local Ag agent or your state dept. of Agriculture for the guidelines in your area.

      3. John, you should not be asking us. you should be asking the Oklahoma dept. of Ag. As of now, I believe there is not limit or method required. Grow as many as you want, in any way that you want. It is just like the old west in Oklahoma at this point. However; Be advised that the laws will change.

      4. I am in the process of obtaining my commercial license for cultivating here in Oklahoma. I was wondering what were the regulations and requirements for cultivating. Eg. Do they have to be hydroponiclly grown? Can they be grown in soil? And if so , do they have to be grown in pots and potting soil as to monitor exactly what is in them or can I plant them in the ground and add soil to them and keep track this way? And as a commercial cultivator how many plants can I grow at one time ( per harvest)? Any information about These questions or pertaining questions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time. John

      5. This is dated, THANKFULLY!! Please update it soon, and let us know the legal way of obtaining seeds! 😀

      6. Hay!!! This is 2018!!! That’s only about a month!!! I am having a little hard time remembering it’s not still 20whatever.

      7. I read the ENTIRE doc as it stands now. It’s on the Oklahoma State Health Dept website. It looks to me that you are not going to legal until after Aug. 27, 2018. Hope I’m wrong.

      8. Roger Roach,

        No one can give you that information because every state is different and most states even allowing MMJ growing does not have guidelines in place at the inception of the law. Just keep searching for Oklahoma marijuana reform or legalization. Sorry that I have no more info for you. Peace. 🙂

      9. I’ve been a big fan of yours for several years. You gave me the confidence to grow my own threw your knowledge and expertise. I would like to grow legally in Oklahoma one of these days and feel your knowledge would invaluable to make that happen when OK wakes up and gets the message. Could you point me in a good direction to make this dream a reality once some form growing can done? Are Colorado growing guidelines a good place to start whether it is medicinal or regular marijuana? What would you do to prepare in Oklahoma? Thank You for time.
