Where can I consume the cannabis I buy?Per 19 CSR 30-95.030, no qualifying patient shall consume marijuana for medical use in a public place, unless provided by law. 19 CSR 30-95.010 defines a public place as any public or private property, or portion of public or private property, that is open to the general public, including but not limited to, sidewalks, streets, bridges, parks, schools and businesses. See 19 CSR 30-95.010(33) for more information. Learn more on the Missouri DHSS website.
What do I do if I lose my card?If you lose your patient card, you can easily reprint your certification via your Missouri Medical Marijuana Program Registry Account (MMMP). Registered patients and caregivers are required to have their ID card available when purchasing or in possession of medical marijuana. Instructions on how to reprint your medical marijuana card can be found here.
How much cannabis can I purchase as a medical patient?The qualifying patient’s physician may certify up to four ounces of dried, unprocessed marijuana, or its equivalent, in a 30-day period. If there is a compelling reason why the qualifying patient needs a greater amount, then the Department requires two independent physician certifications specifying what other amount the qualifying patient needs. See 19 CSR 30-95.030(5)(E) for more information. Learn more on the Missouri DHSS website.
