Frequently Asked Questions

Will my registration status be made publicly available?

No. The law prohibits the DHSS, as well as Missouri licensed dispensaries, from making personal identifying information public. Physicians and those employed by dispensaries will be able to verify a patient or caregiver registration.

Will Missouri accept medical cards from other states?

No. At this time, in order to access medical cannabis in Missouri, you must be a patient in the Missouri medical marijuana program.

Will minors be allowed to become legal cannabis patients in Missouri?

No. You must be 18 years or older and a legal resident of Missouri.

Will I be able to grow my own cannabis?

Patients will be allowed to grow 6 flowering plants in their home. (It must be an enclosed, locked facility that is equipped with security devices that permit access only to the patient/caregiver.) Patients can purchase up to 4 ounces of dried medical marijuana or equivalent. The law requires one not possess more than a 60-day supply of dried marijuana or equivalent unless permitted with written certification from two independent physicians. The fee for the grower card is $100.

Where will I be able to obtain medical marijuana in Missouri?

Medical marijuana will be available from retail dispensaries licensed by DHSS. Once the DHSS has completed its dispensary licensing process, dispensary locations will be made available through this site. We will update our Missouri dispensary map as dispensaries begin to open.

When will I receive my Missouri medical marijuana card?

Within 30 days of application, if your application is approved.
