Pocahontas Medical Marijuana Doctor
Ozark MMJ Cards provides medical marijuana cards to residents of Pocahontas, Arkansas. Pocahontas is situated along east and west sides of the Black River in the northwestern portion of the state. Named after the Native American from Jamestown, Virginia, a statue of the city’s famous namesake is located in Overlook Park. Pocahontas is the county seat of Randolph County. The Old Randolph County Courthouse, built in 1871, remains the distinguishing feature of the city with its stunning Victorian Italianate design.
The city’s economy is supported by light industry and farming supplies. Because of a 17-block area of downtown Pocahontas which was designated a National Historic Landmark District, Pocahontas also has a growing heritage tourism industry. Pocahontas is also a Preserve America Community. Preserve America Communities is a federal initiative and designation program recognizing communities that protect and celebrate their heritage and use their historic assets for economic development and community revitalization. History buffs also enjoy strolling along the Civil War River Walk or admiring Arkansas’s first quilt trail.
Pocahontas is a leader in arts and education in the region. The city offers cultural and entertainment opportunities at its Imperial Dinner Theatre, the Studio for the Arts, and the Downtown Playhouse. Art galleries, unique shopping, and dining venues are enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.
Served by five rivers and one lake, outdoor recreation and water sports are a big part of life in Randolph County. The Black River offers excellent big-bass fishing, while anglers can find consistent catch of bass, bream, and crappie on the Current River. The Fourche River empties into the Black River about 500 yards east of the city and offers good fishing opportunities as well. With its cold, swift water, Spring River is Arkansas’ most reliable paddling stream. Small-mouth bass fishing and duck hunting is enjoyed along the Eleven Point River.
Public schools in the Pocahontas School District include Alma Spikes Elementary School, M. D. Williams Intermediate School, Pocahontas Junior High School, and Pocahontas High School. The school mascot of Pocahontas High School is the Redskins. Black River Technical College (BRTC) is a public community college located in the city. BRTC offers degree programs, technical courses, and community educational courses to over 3,000 students each year.

The Ozark MMJ Card process: a potential patient will submit the patient information form found on our website and upload a record of a qualifying condition. Within one business day, the patient will receive a phone call to schedule a concierge appointment. Visits generally take about 15 minutes, but extra time is reserved so the doctor is able to answer any questions the patient may have. Upon conclusion of the certification, the patient will receive the Physician’s Written Certification required for a State-issued medical marijuana card. We guide every patient through the process of applying with the state of Arkansas, once you have received your medical recommendation from Ozark MMJ Card’s concierge physician.
For patients without documentation of a qualifying condition, an appointment will need to be scheduled with our concierge service to confirm qualification before proceeding with medical marijuana card certification. Per HIPAA regulations, any information obtained between a physician and a patient in a bona fide medical arrangement is completely confidential and private. This is known as Protected Health Information and a third party can only obtain it with the written consent of the patient. Qualification is not guaranteed. Qualifying is based on the doctor’s determination, qualifying conditions, and a patient’s complete medical history.
Ozark MMJ Cards (Arkansas Medical Marijuana Cards) 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.
