Not every medical marijuana patient has a spotless criminal record. Mistakes happen. People do foolish things. They get caught. They serve time. It’s a part of life. But not every state allows those with previous criminal convictions to get a medical marijuana card.
The Green Health Docs Advocacy Team takes a look at whether Missouri will allow those with a previous criminal record to get a Missouri medical marijuana card. And even better, can those patients grow cannabis, too?
Missouri medical marijuana certification has begun. This means that patients who have been waiting to get a legal Missouri medical marijuana card will finally be able to qualify. The state will open its medical cannabis registry July 4, 2019. Patients, however, can begin receiving their medical marijuana certifications from licensed medical marijuana physicians 30 days prior, beginning June 4, 2019.
