In Missouri, qualifying patients may possess and use medical marijuana. State licensed businesses may grow, process and dispense marijuana. Every state has different marijuana laws- they are regulated by state, not federal law. Some states allow marijuana for recreational and medical use, some states only allow medical use, and some only allow certain low THC products for medical use. Most states limit the number of licenses they will grant and the window to apply for them.
