Frequently Asked Questions

Will Missouri medical marijuana patients’ registration status be made publicly available?

No. The law prohibits the DHSS, as well as Missouri licensed dispensaries, from making personal identifying information public. Physicians and those employed by dispensaries will be able to verify a patient or caregiver registration. No. Insurance companies do not cover the cost of a certification in Missouri because marijuana is still illegal at the federal level.

Will Missouri accept medical cards from other states?

No. At this time, in order to access medical cannabis in Missouri, you must be a patient in the Missouri medical marijuana program.

Will minors be allowed to become legal cannabis patients in Missouri?

No. You must be 18 years or older and a legal resident of Missouri.

Will I be able to grow my own cannabis in Missouri?

Patients will be allowed to grow 6 flowering plants in their home. (It must be an enclosed, locked facility that is equipped with security devices that permit access only to the patient/caregiver.) Patients can purchase up to 4 ounces of dried medical marijuana or equivalent. The law requires one not possess more than a 60-day supply of dried marijuana or equivalent unless permitted with written certification from two independent physicians. The fee for the grower card is $100.

Will I be able to go to the pharmacy to fill my medical marijuana prescription?

No, you will only be able to obtain medical marijuana at a Missouri-licensed dispensary facility.

Where will I be able to obtain medical marijuana in Missouri?

Medical marijuana will be available from retail dispensaries licensed by DHSS. Once the DHSS has completed its dispensary licensing process, dispensary locations will be made available through this site. We will update our Missouri dispensary map as dispensaries begin to open.

You can fax your records to 314-282-8017 or you can have them emailed to info@greenhealthdocs.com. The Department will begin accepting applications for cultivation, manufacturing, and dispensing facilities on Aug. 3, 2019 and we anticipate medical marijuana may be available for purchase as early as June 2020.

When will I receive my Missouri medical marijuana card?

Patients should receive their Missouri marijuana card within 30 days of application, if your application is approved.

A registered Missouri medical provider will examine you, review medical records, assess your medical history, maintain your patient records and provide follow-up care as needed.

What will I need for my appointment with Green Health Docs?

You will need a photo ID and medical records that say something about the condition for which you are trying to enter the program.

What is the Department doing to facilitate implementation of Amendment 2?

The DHSS is reaching out to stakeholders for input and reviewing other states’ regulations to determine best practices. Check back to the Missouri DHSS website for updates and developments.

Patients who are issued Medical Marijuana Cards are considered legal cannabis patients and are allowed to possess cannabis under state law.

There is no cannabis at this time, why should I get certified now?

You are able to legally possess up to 4 oz per month as a Missouri marijuana card holder and you can cultivate your own medicine without legal repercussions as long as you are staying within the legal limits. Also, once dispensaries open there becomes a huge influx of requests for patient registration and doctor visits with significant delays for both. At Green Health Docs, we encourage patients to get certified prior to this so that once dispensaries are open, our patients are able to immediately access product.

How much does the Missouri medical marijuana certification cost?

The cost for the Missouri Medical Marijuana Certification is $150 for the initial visit. This price includes assistance with paperwork, medical marijuana education, the doctor’s visit, and any other help throughout the process.

How much medical cannabis is a patient allowed?

To purchase: DHSS is to set a limit of not less than 4 ounces of dried marijuana or equivalent in 30-day period (more permitted with written certification from two independent physicians)
To possess: patients are allowed to grow six flowering plants in their homes; possess not less than a 60-day supply of dried marijuana or equivalent (more permitted with written certification from two independent physicians).

How long will a Missouri patient’s certification be valid for?

A patient or caregiver registration will be valid from the date of issuance and expire one year later. We will update this as the program develops more.

Can someone with an out-of-state medical marijuana card possess medical marijuana in Missouri on December 6, 2018?

No. The reason is that while the possession is technically allowed, there will be no marijuana available for legal possession until June 2020. There will not yet be any licensed dispensary facilities to purchase marijuana from; cultivation identification cards will not yet have been issued; and transportation of marijuana into Missouri from another state or purchase of marijuana from street dealers is prohibited under state and federal law.

Can I legally possess medical marijuana in Missouri right now?

Yes. If you are a legal cannabis patient, you are allowed to legally possess cannabis but at this time, there is no place to purchase cannabis in Missouri.  But, you can legally grow your own cannabis at home and that is allowed.  We anticipate medical cannabis will be available for purchase in Missouri in late June.
