Tontitown Medical Marijuana Doctor
Ozark MMJ Cards provides medical marijuana cards to residents of Tontitown, Arkansas. Tontitown is a commuter city to nearby Fayettville and Springdale. Founded by Italian immigrants, Tontitown is now home to over 5,000 residents and expected to reach 6,000 by 2025.
Tontitown’s most well-known event is the Tontitown Grape Festival. One of the biggest festivals in Northwest Arkansas, the Tontitown Grape Festival is a celebration of the city’s Italian heritage. The festival’s attractions include live music, carnival, arts and crafts, a used book sale, spaghetti dinner, and more. Attendees can work off their pasta indulgences by grape stomping or participating in Run for the Grapes, a 5K and 1-mile Fun Run.
The Tontitown Historical Museum displays an early grape press and wine-bottling machine. Many household items used by the early settlers are on display as well, including an old iron, a wooden rolling pin, a coffee grinder, and a butter churn. The vestments worn by the founder of Tontitown, Father Bandini, and a stained glass window from the first Catholic Church in Tontitown are also on display.
Residents and visitors can enjoy the Harry Sbanotto Park in Tontitown. The park consists of 13 acres and includes two covered pavilions with tables, bar-b-que grills, and picnic benches, as well as a gazebo, playground, baseball field, covered bocce ball court, basketball court, horseshoe pits, volleyball nets, and tennis courts.
Tontitown is surrounded by a mix of farmland, lakes, and wooded hills. Climate is continental, with hot, humid summers. The elevation of the city and its location near the Ozark Mountains keep temperatures a little cooler than many other parts of the state.
Our mission is to increase access to legal medical marijuana certification at the lowest cost and to provide our patients with the best possible guidance regarding the safe, responsible use of medical marijuana.

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.
