There are a select group of conditions that qualify a person to apply for a medical cannabis license.
These conditions include cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, migraines, chronic pain, debilitating psychiatric disorders, HIV, AIDS, any terminal illness, a chronic medical condition treated by habit-forming prescription medications, and any other chronic or debilitating medical conditions at the physician’s discretion.
Possession Laws for Medical Cannabis Patients
As a medical cannabis patient, there are restrictions on how much cannabis an individual can possess at any given time. Missouri state law dictates that a medical cannabis patient may grow up to six (6) flowering cannabis plants and possess a 90-day supply of dried cannabis (if they are growing plants). If cannabis is not being cultivated on the individual’s property, they may possess a 60-day supply of dried cannabis.
Let’s say that a physician recommends two grams per day for a patient. This means that the individual can produce six flowering plants and possess up to 180 grams of dried cannabis at any given time. If the individual is not growing cannabis, they may possess up to 120 grams of dried cannabis.
