Legal Topics

Here are some critical Missouri medical marijuana laws to know:

  • Cannabis cultivation is legal with an optional license.
  • Patients can not drive or operate other motor vehicles under the influence of marijuana, even with a medical card.
  • Medical marijuana patients can purchase up to six ounces of marijuana every 30 days.
  • Patients cannot consume marijuana in public places (defined as public or private property open to the general public), such as:
    • Sidewalks.
    • Streets.
    • Bridges.
    • Parks.
    • Schools.
    • Businesses.

Note: Amendment 3, approved by Missouri voters during the November 2022 election, legalized recreational cannabis use in the state and provides additional benefits for medical marijuana cardholders.

One of these benefits is the addition of employment protections to prevent discrimination against medical cannabis patients who use cannabis during non-work hours away from the worksite.

However, these protections don’t apply if cannabis is used at work or if the employee is impaired by cannabis while working.

Caregivers

Missouri defines a caregiver as someone at least 21 years old responsible for managing a qualified patient’s well-being and designated by the qualifying patient on their application for a medical cannabis ID card.

Caregivers are authorized to purchase, possess, and — with a valid cultivation license — cultivate marijuana on behalf of the qualified patient.

Patients can designate up to two caregivers, and caregivers can have up to six licenses for separate patients.

To apply as a caregiver, you must complete an application with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. You must be listed on the patient’s authorization form as well.

The fee for a caregiver application is $26.50.

Reciprocity

Missouri does not have medical marijuana reciprocity. It does, however, have legal protections in place for out-of-state patients. Recreational cannabis is also legalized for adults 21 and older.

According to the Department of Health and Senior Services, individuals with equivalent out-of-state medical cannabis ID cards will not be arrested or sanctioned under Missouri law for possessing marijuana less than the limit for Missouri patients.

The following states and territories recognize Missouri medical marijuana cards:

*Visitors must complete a visiting patient application with the state program.

The following states have legalized recreational cannabis for adults 21 and older but do not accept out-of-state cards:
