Missouri personal and medical use of marijuana.
Medical Use: On July 14, 2014, Governor Nixon signed HB 2238 into law, which added sections to various Missouri laws permitting the growth and distribution of cannabidiol (CBD) to qualifying patients with intractable epilepsy. The law, focused largely on patient qualifications, growing, and distributing cannabidiol states in relevant parts. The law does not address the workplace in any fashion.
Amendment 2 was passed by 65%, this amendment is approving the medical use of marijuana. Which means a person that either meets a qualifying medical condition (any of the nine) or they get a medical authorization from a doctor, will be allowed to grow, possess and use marijuana, marijuana concentrates and marijuana edibles. This law will go into affect on December 6 2018.
Personal Use: This state does not currently have a personal use law.
