Muskogee’s Big Papa’s Okie Toke medical marijuana dispensary is hosting a patient drive at the Muskogee Civic Center tomorrow, where prospective patients can get their doctor’s recommendation for $25 and uploading that recommendation to the state for another $25.

The recommendation and upload must be paid in cash.

Patients who want to finish the application to the state can do so there as well. If they are on SoonerCare, Medicare or Medicaid, the cost is $22.50. Otherwise, the state’s fee is $104.30, and that fee must be paid with a credit or debit card.

The dispensary is also hosting raffles with giveaways, and BossLady will pay the full costs for 25 patients who sign up.

The event runs from 3 to 8 p.m. on Friday and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday.

For questions, call 405-264-6221.
