Medical cannabis was legalized in Missouri in November 2018. Under the law, any person over the age of 18, with a physician’s recommendation and a qualifying condition, can apply for a medical cannabis license. The Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) is responsible for all private and dispensary licensing and issuing of medical cannabis ID cards.
Caregivers for patients under the age of 18 may also apply for a medical cannabis license through the DHSS after obtaining the recommendation of a physician.
Physician recommendations must be reviewed annually, and licenses must be obtained on a yearly basis at a cost of $25.
