How long does it take to get an Oregon medical marijuana card?

If, upon an initial review, it appears that a complete application has been received, the patient will be issued a receipt letter. This receipt has the same legal effect as a registry identification card for 30 days following the date printed on the letter. Once your application is finished being processed, a card will be mailed to you.
If your application is NOT complete, OMMP staff will send you an “Incomplete Letter” to let you know what needs to be submitted to complete your application. You will have 14 days from the date of the letter to get the missing application materials to OMMP. If the missing application materials are not submitted within the 14 days, your application may be rejected.

How do I make sure my Oregon medical marijuana card state application is processed as quickly as possible?

​Complete all required portions of the application.

Include copies of current government issued photo ID for the caregiver and grower, if applicable.
