This is How You Will Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Missouri
The Status of Cannabis Legalization in Missouri
Cannabis in Missouri, United States, is legal for medical purposes. Possession of small amounts was decriminalized in 2014. The Missouri Legislature in 2014 passed HB 2238, which created the Missouri Hemp Extract Registration Program (MHERP) allows for limited patients to obtain, possess, and use low-THC hemp extract. The MHERP provides Missouri residents diagnosed with intractable epilepsy a registration card that allows legal possession, purchase, and use of CBD as an alternative form of treatment. Patients’ neurology clinicians must document the efficacy of CBD after initially recommending the alternative therapy.
Only patients diagnosed with intractable epilepsy are eligible to participate in the MHERP. Patients younger than 18 must register with a parent or guardian. Patients must apply for a Hemp Extract Registration Card allowing the patient to purchase CBD oil from one of two state-licensed facilities. The Division of Community and Public Health Director’s Office oversees the MHERP. Patients must also submit a completed Hemp Extract Registration Card neurologist certification form indicating that a state-licensed neurologist diagnosed the individual with intractable epilepsy, and recommends treatment with hemp extract.
- Complete and submit a Missouri Hemp Registration Card application form.
- Submit a Missouri Hemp Extract Registration Neurologist Certification form signed by a neurologist licensed in Missouri and board certified in neurology, including proof that the clinician believes CBD may be useful to their patient
- Submit a copy of a valid Missouri state ID card or driver’s license for proof of age and residency.
- Submit a copy of a record of the neurologist’s evaluation and observation relating to the patient’s treatment for intractable epilepsy, along with medical records.
Missouri is likely to have 192 medical-marijuana dispensaries by 2020, backers of Amendment 2 said Thursday in a conference call for news outlets. But, they said, anyone who doesn’t possess a “qualifying patient card” for medical cannabis won’t be allowed to set foot inside.
