Pursuant to the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment of 2016, patients who have lost their medical marijuana card are allowed to obtain replacement cards. Losing a medical card is one of the common reasons why cardholders apply for replacements. Furthermore, an MMJ card may become damaged or worn and, therefore, needs replacing.
No. Patients who have lost their MMJ cards are not required to report such losses to the state’s Department of Health.
If you submitted your initial application for a medical marijuana card, you may print a replacement card online on your account on the Arkansas medical marijuana system. If you do not have an online account, you may call the office of the Arkansas Department of Health and request a replacement card.
Per Section 18 of the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Amendment of 2016, the Department of Health is permitted to charge fees for replacement medical marijuana cards. While the DOH did not state the fee for replacing a lost medical marijuana card, a replacement card may cost $50, the cost of a new card.
It takes between 2 and 3 weeks to get a replacement medical marijuana card from the Arkansas Department of Health.
