According to Jay Patel, CEO of Green Releaf Dispensaries, “Medical cannabis is hands-down the most impactful collective investment our state has seen in recent memory.”

Missouri’s medical marijuana program has been successful, attracting 170,000 registered patients and creating more than US$200 million in sales. To date, the state has approved 322 medical marijuana facilities, including dispensaries and cultivation facilities.

Medical marijuana was legalized in Missouri in 2018, with the state’s first legal sale in October 2020. Under this ruling, doctors can recommend cannabis treatment to patients who fit the state’s criteria. Among other conditions covered by the program are cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma and migraines.

People who live in Missouri can apply for medical marijuana cards and home cultivation cards for a US$25 and US$100 fee, respectively.
