How to obtain a Missouri medical marijuana card

Dec 31

Residents are often curious about how to access medical marijuana dispensaries in St. Louis.

Figure out if you qualify

To be eligible for medical marijuana, you must be a resident in the state. Patients over 65 can be treated, but they cannot receive prescription drugs, such as those that may impair judgment, coordination, or the ability to make decisions. To show compassion to patients, caregivers must be responsible adults with good mental health.

Show State Residency

If you wish to have your Missouri voter registration approved, you will need to provide proof of your residency and length of stay. You can also bring any utility bills you received while you were there if that fails. Ask before you proceed.

A medical condition is possible.

Missouri's Amendment 2 win was a victory for those who want to expand healthcare options. The list includes many liberal conditions that would restrict access to medical marijuana to conservative residents.

  • Glaucoma

  • Cancer

  • Epilepsy

  • Chronic pain
