AR MMJ Cards (Arkansas Medical Marijuana Card) was founded by Dr. Daniel Whitelocke to ensure patients receive quality care and have access to alternative medicines including medical cannabis. After extensive research on the benefits of medical marijuana card programs in other states, Dr. Whitelocke decided he wanted to help patients by offering affordable medical cannabis card certifications. Rather than having patients experience the inconvenience of a long clinic wait and added cost, Arkansas Medical Marijuana Card services are brought directly to the patient.
Dr. Whitelocke is the only MMJ Card certification that offers mobile medical marijuana cards – he or his team can meet at a home, office, favorite coffee place, or other location that is convenient for the patient. It is important to note that AR MMJ Cards does not carry ANY form of marijuana products nor do we sell any form of THC-containing products in our mobile clinics. These products can only be obtained legally from a licensed Arkansas dispensary.
