A: I think the larger question is not whether you can have a medical marijuana card while you’re on probation, but can you INGEST medical marijuana while you’re on probation. The answer varies based upon which Probation office oversees your probation. Many Oklahoma counties will allow it and many counties will not (and it’s actually not uncommon for them to change their mind from time to time.

It would certainly be foolish to go against the stated rules of probation if they recite that you may not use marijuana while under their rules. Violations of probation can vary from a slap on the wrist to unexpected convictions and even incarceration.

Best of luck!
