 Program Overview

In 2014, Missouri passed HB 2238, which creates a legal right for certain patients to obtain, possess, and use “hemp extracts”. The law defines a “hemp extract” as a preparation of cannabis that contains at least 5% CBD and no more than 0.3% THC. Only patients with a seizure disorder and a recommendation from a neurologist are eligible to obtain a “hemp registration card,” which entitles them to access and legal protection. Patients are allowed to purchase hemp extracts from two state-regulated “Cannabidiol oil care centers.” The law also allows the Department of Agriculture to license and regulate growers of cannabis plants to produce the oil to make sure they conform to the CBD and THC stipulations.

In early 2016, an initiative to legalize medical marijuana was approved for circulation and signatures can now be collected for November of 2016’s ballot. The initiative includes the following qualifying conditions: Cancer, Epilepsy, Glaucoma, Intractable migraines unresponsive to other treatments, chronic medical condition that causes severe, persistent pain or muscle spasms, including but not limited to muscle sclerosis seizures, Parkinson’s and Tourette’s, debilitating psychiatric disorders, including but not limited to PTSD, HIV, chronic medical condition normally treated with a prescription medication that could lead to dependency, any terminal illness, Hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, agitation of Alzheimer’s disease, cachexia and wasting syndrome.
