Steps to Getting Your Medical Card

The first step in getting a medical marijuana card in Missouri is to visit a doctor and see if you qualify. Once you’ve been certified by a doctor, you can apply with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

Applications recently became available in early June 2019. In addition to what it costs you to see your doctor, there’s an application fee of $25. Your insurance might cover the doctor’s visit but will not cover the cost of the card nor the cost of medical cannabis CBD and THC products.

What does the application process include?

  • Basic personal information

  • Photo

  • Proof of residency (i.e. driver’s licence or utility bill)

  • Email address

  • Nonrefundable $25 application fee

Within 30 days of applying, you should receive your medical marijuana card in the mail.

  1. I’m truly excited that its finally here! I’m just waiting to see my Dr. so I’m able to ask her about it. I have Neurofibromatosis type 1 from which I have tumors all on my spine and on the outside of my body, I also have ADHD, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Depression, IBS, Migraines, PTSD from all the physical abuse I endured growing up, the sexual abuse from age 13-17, the rape at age 16 almost 17, from something happening in 2004 that I really don’t like talking about., Ulcers. I have attempted suicide 5 times and I was only put in hospital 2×s and my 2nd time was my longest stay.
    The 1st time I stayed 2 days.
    I will not lie, I smoke every once in a blue moon, but when I was in Colorado last year, I maybe took 1 or 2 pain pills instead of 4 and finally I felt pain free, I was actually happy. If you were to ask anyone that knows me well, they would tell you that most of the time I look worn out, stressed, upset and I put on a fake smile pretending I’m ok. 
    While they can see in my eyes that the real me is there burried deep screaming at the top of my lungs to get me out. 
    I don’t get out like I use to and when I do I enjoy it at first but as time ticks by, I’m plotting my escape, I know how many steps I need to take to get to the exit, if I walked fast I cut it in half and if I ran I would get there faster than that.  I’m panicking and if there is a lot of people around my heart beats so fast it feels like its going to jump out of my chest, my hands get sweaty and I have trouble breathing.  I have to take 2 valium 30 min before long trips or even going to Wal-Mart.  I don’t like the person that I have become, when using MJ I’m a carefree person, in less pain, happy, talkative, fun to be around and I have that spark back in my eyes ( or so I’m told). I’m tired of having to take man made meds when I can have access to a plant that God put on Earth for us to use. I hate the side effects that meds have, and if I tell my psych Dr. that the meds stopped working, instead of increasing the dose he changes the meds on me. I feel for everyone here, and I truly hope and I will pray that every single one of you will obtain your cards.
    One thing I don’t agree with though is not allowed to have a gun, like what if you already have one for home defense? That rule sucks bad.

  2. Back broken twice, neck twice. I am blessed that family and friends help me get it when I or they can afford it. It helps me eat and sleep (less) depression, also relieves much of the muscle cramping. No more Flexeril. And therefore, less numbness in legs.

  3. Asia Moreland

    I have suffer from seizures from getting jumped plus from the beatings I got from my dad when I was growing up, ptsd from the abuse by my father and from where I seen somebody get hit by a pickup truck in 2017, I also have severe depression and bipolar and it helps me a lot with my medical issues/ problems I’m grateful for having such a medicine ouy there that helps me a lot now I just filled the application out for my MMJ Card.

  4. I need to get i have ptsd firmerabolia drepresion chronic pain conerly artie dease axiony bipolar nuraltipey in my body

  5. I have PTSD from the first 10 years from abusive parents. It really pisses me off I have to buy a license to grow my own medicine and I am limited at every step, but I can go to a liquor store and buy whatever I want. This is discrimination at it’s finest. Alcohol is much more dangerous than marijuana, and less regulated. How insane.

    1. Thank you… I’m glad someone finally said it 😊, I say the same thing, God put Marijuana on Earth for everyone, Alcohol & Cigarettes are man made.
      Marijuana is NOT a gateway drug, yet Pain pills are or at least can be for a lot of people.
      Marijuana is NOT addictive, Alcohol and pain meds, Cigarettes ARE.
      Marijuana has NEVER killed anyone, Alcohol and Pain meds, Cigarettes HAVE…. YET Alcohol and Cigarettes you can purchase basically at any time as long as you are of age.

  6. A Missouri Citizen

    Ever since I was a kid and was in the DARE program I was scared to death of MJ. We were told it was a “gateway” drug and people died from using it. We were conditioned to be afraid of it. I have suffered many years with Fibromyasia and restless leg syndrome. I can barely sleep at night and when I wake up sometimes I can’t get out of bed. Dr’s prescribed me expensive medications that I either can’t afford or make me afraid of the side effects and so because of that, I end up not taking them. I went on vacation to Colorado a few years ago and tried the CBD lotion and it didn’t really work so I tried smoking and edibles for the first time and it felt great to not be in as much pain for the first time in my life. You really don’t know how much pain you are in until it’s gone. That for me was enough to convince me that there is a medical treatment that is natural, inexpensive compared to the pills, and that actually works. Hopefully they get everything figured out soon and it gets to market because it sucks living with this.

  7. It’s interesting to see so many who say they want away from Big Pharma to push these oils and then turn around and try to hand it right back to them. Folks need to think about what they’re doing before they do it. You have no way to extract those oils, you feel me? If God wanted you to play in those oils he would have made that plant produce oil not bud

  8. I have had asthma for over 25 years was born with it I have taken breathing machines inhalers azmacort Ventolin so far I’ll so I own the machine but had make got misplace due to the move and Fire but that’s all over with now that what happened 20 years ago but anyway I am writing this letter to attorney of my health situation of me having asthma and also having acute migraines I’ve been having migraines ever since I was 10 years old is when it started I went to the hospital numerous of times and they said they was nothing wrong with my brain when they did the scan but I knew something was very wrong when I kept having migraines when I went to the eye doctor and it comes to find out that the migraines were caused by my eyesight Bobby not wearing glasses so I start wearing glasses to cure my migraines but it did not actually cure my migraines that actually made them a little bit worsen due to the fact that I did not find out that I needed glasses at the time so I started smoking cannabis with a friend of mine and it seems like since I’ve been smoking cannabis with a friend of mine I have not had asthma attack as often as I used to heck I can’t even remember when the last time I had a asthma attack I have not even had migraines my eyesight is a little bit much better than it was before and also my migraines has almost disappeared when I do have a migraine or asthma attack I have a written statement that I was in the hospital at Barnes-Jewish Hospital the medicine wasn’t working so I had some cannabis on hand with me there I went outside and I started to inhale and smoke my cannabis when I came inside the nurse had took my vitals and listen to my chest and she said what did you do she said at one point in time you were having an asthma attack and I can hear you wheezing and I step out the room and you go outside and you come back and you’re no longer Wisin I explained to her that if you can smell what is on me cannabis that is what I did and from that point on she wrote in my files that I smoke cannabis and came in and I was better than I was when I came in to see the nurse at Barnes-Jewish Hospital so what I am saying is that I am I think that I am well qualified for cannabis card for my condition which is asthma an acute migraines

    Have suffered, gosh, 20 years now with an autoimmune disease (SLE & Fibromyalgia) and have not been able to even have a 5mg hydrocodone prescribed. I got to the point where I didn’t give two hoots and a holler about whether weed was legal here or not. The Doctors I have been forced to endure at Truman Medical Center at Hospital Hill here in Kansas City are a joke. For real. I was a nurse and never in my life ever expected to draw that conclusion for those I used to hold in esteem. I am 65, and if I don’t qualify for the medical marijuana, I guess I’ll live the rest of my life either in pain or run the risk of living in the streets due to the exorbitant expense of weed that is still illegal recreationally. Been on disability for ten years. Oh well. At least, for me, I have God in my life. Helps me make sense of life.😵

  10. The correct term is cannabis, it is not a weed and Marijuana is Mexican Slang.

    CBD is the pain relieving side of the plant, however a full spectrum is more effective. When you purchase for pain relief make sure the strain has a high CBD count.

  11. Charlotte Thompson

    I have been in pain for the last 20 years, I can hardly wait to try medical Marijuana, I was on fentanyl and oxycodone for 19 years until the government stepped in and said no more. They just don’t know or Realize how much pain some of us are in.

  12. What a disgrace…. turning our rights into permissions.

    Where the hell are the “permits” to get antibiotics?
    Or the permits to get a cavity filled?
    or the permits to have a child?

    Don’t worry as dumbed down at the American people are, they are not long in coming.

    1. i know right and all the time they keep telling u u are free enjoy being free in america i cant even work for free here they charge me 22 percent for the privalage

  13. Edward Petrovich

    I was able to go to dispensarys in California, then moved here to Missouri only to find it was illegal.
    Having Hepatitis C my appetite isn’t what it should be and I’ve lost weight since moving here.this law passing is truly a Godsend… thank you

  14. Please help me get a card I have chronic pain spinal stenosis fibromyalgia DDD arthritis neuropathy and leg pa I n

  15. Please help me get a mmh card I suffer from bladder cancer and I have spasms all day and night. The needs I take don’t help me at all. I be un so much pain I cry all day every day

  16. I have had grand Mal Epilepsy all my life and seeing other epileptics become seizure free in other states with this, is life changing! They need to make it legal for all the states, we’re supposed to be land of the free, yet I feel segregated, this is a message for everyone with medical issues that require this! Yeah! One day America will become green friendly, yes I mean eco and weed friendly, good night MO! O.G out.

  17. madelyn shackleford

    I am so happy I have lived with cronic back pain, have had surgery but have not had relief, so I am hoping that this will happen soon.

  18. I’ve been a permit holder in Oregon since 1997. When I moved out here I was amazed how people viewed cannabis. I really am amazed and thankful voters passed medical marijuana. Now I need a doctor. Any ideas ?

  19. I told my doctor years ago when I was tired of taking Percocet and tramadol and Dilaudid and prednisone… They were making me horribly sick as well as some of them being very bad for long-term solution for bone density and the worry of physical dependency which after being on them for 7 years I had to overcome and told them I wouldn’t take that shit anymore…

    I would use marijuana 4 my pain controlling issues to the best of my ability and understood it was at my own risk and was told even though they weren’t allowed to legally prescribe it they thought that was amazing I would rather use it than all of their narcotics and that they would happily prescribe it if it were legal and they have for 7 years known that I have used it to control a lot of my pain issues as well as other issues I’m just so glad that finally it’s legal and I don’t have to worry about getting in trouble or ending up in jail just to take care of myself without having to be a narcotic addict on all of these pills that are so horrible for the body with major side effects…. Thank God this is finally happening… I’m so great ful… And now I don’t have to worry about my major anxiety messing with me as much or in the constant worry about being in trouble or getting caught self-medicating which has been turmoil in torment on my mind for 7 years because now legally I know there will be no problem having it issued for all of my medical issues…

  20. Since we are all not exact copies of one another, not all of us can take opiates of any kind without severe health and mental side effects… like me. We were getting ready to have to move out of state to another state that offered the help I legally needed, but it would have destroyed my son’s new career here. So, Thank You, Missouri for all you are doing in order to help those of us who have needed this for so long. A life in pain is no life at all.

  21. I am so happy to hear this news. Since 94 I have suffered from a herniated disk in my back and I also have the hereditary degenerative bone disease that so many in my family have now. Most doctors in my area doesn’t prescribe pain medicine because there are so many that abuse “pills” around here. It’s pathetic. The ones that doesn’t and never have abused medicine can’t get any relief (that would be me) because of the overdoses and abuse of meds. The only relief I can get is when I smoke. I don’t like the taste or the smell of it but, I like the effects. I don’t smoke to get high I smoke to feel better. There’s been many days where I can’t hardly walk because of my back issues, I can smoke marijuana and afterwards walk with no pain and even bend over and touch my toes. I feel like a “slinky” if I had to describe the feeling. It feels so good to get a much needed break from my pain. Like many others I have suffered for so long. Thank you MO. Relief is on the way. Thank you Jesus <3

  22. Scarlet Schultz (Ms. Homebody)

    i cant express how much this means to me to see medical being passed in missouri! ive lived with PTSD and a number of other issues from a young age. seeing this makes me less afraid to approach a doctor and seekiing treatment. im literally crying…
    Within the past year i have stopped taking my pills bc i realized they werent defeating the demons that haunt my mental state. Within the last couple years iive barely left my home or even set foot in a store. Ive lost so many friends bc i cant control my issues….to see that i could possibly seek help from a natural promising medicine is enlightening. I wish this would have come soon and maybe i wouldnt have wasted so much time. I cant express how heavy i feel right now but at the same time how light my heart feels as well.
    With each tear that falls im starting to see a new light at the end of the tunnel and this time its getting closer. Heres to one day being able to go out in public without feeling uncomfortably numb or completely a mess in my mind.
    Thank you missouri for you have finally given me a alternative that may help change my life.
