Medical marijuana in Missouri was legalized in November of 2018 with Amendment 2.  Amendment 2 establishes a system of taxation and regulation for cannabis sales, and allows patients to cultivate their own cannabis (with additional licensing). Dispensaries are now open and operating.

Though supplies are currently limited, and only a select few dispensaries have opened, Missouri has granted 192 licenses for medical dispensaries, so more are soon to follow. Be sure to check the Where to Buy section below to see which dispensaries are currently available. In addition to THC preparations, the state previously passed a limited medical cannabis bill in 2014, House Bill 2238, which legalized the use of hemp and CBD derivatives for medical use. Cannabis for recreational purposes remains illegal in the state of Missouri.
