Medical Marijuana Cards & Qualifying Conditions
[Updated For 2020]
MO Marijuana Cards
Medical marijuana cards in Missouri are being issued by the state after the doctors approval. This allows access to buy THC and CBD products from legal cannabis dispensaries. Getting a Missouri marijuana card also grants the ability to possess, and grow cannabis at home for medicinal use.
Marijuana card doctors are seeing patients in St Louis, Springfield, St Joseph, Columbia, Independence, Joplin, and Kansas City. Missouri marijuana telemedicine is also available for people that would rather visit with a doctor from your phone, tablet or computer to get certified for your Missouri medcard without having to travel.
There are three different types of medical marijuana ID cards:
Qualifying Patient Card – $25 Cost
Primary Caregiver Card – $25 Cost
Patient Cultivation Card – $100 Cost
