After the appointment is complete, the doctor will fill out a recommendation form for medical marijuana and approve you. Once you have this you can then use that to apply to the state.

About Cannabis in Missouri

Cannabis is legal for medical reasons in Missouri. Small-scale possession was decriminalized in 2014. In 2014, the Missouri Legislature passed HB 2238, which created the Missouri Hemp Extract Registration Program (MHERP) to obtain, possess, and use low-THC hemp extract for limited patients. The MHERP offers a registration card that enables legal ownership, buy and use of CBD as an alternative type of therapy for citizens diagnosed with intractable epilepsy to Missouri. After originally recommending alternative therapy, neurology clinicians of patients must document the effectiveness of CBD.

Only patients diagnosed with intractable epilepsy were eligible for MHERP participation in the 2014 Legislature. Patients under the age of 18 are required to register with a parent or guardian. Patients must apply for a Hemp Extract Registration Card that allows the patient to buy CBD oil from one of two state-licensed establishments. The Office of the Director of Community and Public Health Division supervises the MHERP. Patients must also submit a completed Hemp Extract Registration Card neurologist certification form stating that an individual with intractable epilepsy has been diagnosed by a state-licensed neurologist and advises hemp extract therapy.

As of 2019, a fresh list of qualifying circumstances has opened the doors from which a wider variety of patients can be approved for therapy with medical marijuana.
