Scott Medical Marijuana Doctor
Located along Ark. 165 approximately 20 miles southeast of Little Rock, Scott is a scenic drive into the Delta and a popular stop for cyclists riding the Harper’s Loop route. Scott is known for its “Old South” vibe due to its historical and agricultural background. One contributing factors to this vibe is the presence of the Scott Plantation Settlement on Alexander Road. The settlement includes 13 buildings which were relocated from the surrounding area to recreate a traditional Arkansas plantation. Some of the structures on-site include a hand-hewn cypress corncrib, an 1840s log cabin, a wash house, tenant houses, a railroad depot, and a blacksmith shop. A restored brick building which was originally the old Steele-Dortch Store is located a little further down Ark 161. The settlement also serves as the Plantation Agriculture Museum State Park, focusing on the role the cotton industry played in Arkansas’s history and economy. The main museum exhibits are housed several buildings: a structure originally built as a general store in 1912, the Dortch Gin Exhibit containing a 1916 cotton gin, Seed Warehouse #5 which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and a Historic Tractor Exhibit completed in 2018. Visitors to the museum can enjoy live, historical demonstrations that include water pumping and cotton ginning. Children and adults can learn in highly interactive displays about how crops were grown and harvested in Arkansas from the time of statehood in 1836 through World War II.
Other attractions contribute to Scott’s old Southern vibe. One such attraction is Marlsgate. Located on the shores of Bearskin Lake, it was a plantation home owned by the Dortch family. Although the centerpiece of one of Arkansas’ major plantations is now only open for pre-booked group tours and special events, it is worth driving by just to view its still-impressive exterior. Another attraction is the J&P Ranch, which offers seasonal activities like hay rides, horseback riding, a petting zoo, a playground, and a pumpkin patch.
Visitors to Scott can also check out an apparent hillock in the flat terrain, visible on the right side of U.S. 165. Part of what is now Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park, the site was home to people of the Plum Bayou culture. It is believed to have been occupied from 650-1050 A.D. This site was a ceremonial ground for prehistoric Native Americans. A National Historic Landmark, this park hosts the largest and most complex mound site in Arkansas. It also offers the rare opportunity to see archeological research in progress. Toltex is a popular field trip destination for local schools and is a fascinating contribution to historical preservation. If visitors would like a guided tour to the park, it is recommended that requests for these be made well in advance. Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park invites visitors to experience the Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice and Fall Equinox on Mound H the same manner utilized by the Plum Bayou culture over 1,200 years ago.

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 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.
