OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority has now posted the application information and instructions for patients and businesses, according to the State Department of Health.

OSDH says processing and approving applications will not start until August 25.

You will need proof of residency, an ID, and you must upload a digital photo of yourself (you can't use your driver's license's picture). 

“Any form that you will have to attach or upload will be available on our website today,” Department of Health’s Melissa Miller said Thursday afternoon.

"Our staff has worked nonstop over the past three months to develop this process and I commend their effort,” said OSDH Interim Commissioner Tom Bates. “The information provided today should answer many of the questions we have been receiving about what is required to apply.”

OSDH says a Food Safety Standards Board was also established and the commissioner of health will announce the positions next week.
