420 Card

Dec 5

Here's a quick guide to getting a cannabis card

Missouri is well-known as the first state to legalize medical cannabis. On July 1, 2018, the Missouri Department of Health opened accepting patient applications. They expect dispensaries to be open by mid-to-late 2020, according to current speeds. Many providers are reluctant to assess their patients who have submitted Amendment Two applications, as it could take some time for statewide policies to be streamlined and solidified. They are unable to get approval due to their being within the proximity limits without additional qualifications (age limit).

Missouri patient eligibility

Missouri allows patients with certain medical conditions to smoke marijuana. However, the process of obtaining this card can be difficult and confusing. There are many requirements that must be met in order to live a healthy life. These include being an official resident, having your doctor sign off on you, and submitting paperwork online within 30 days after your diagnosis. They will also need other forms before approval. You must have one of these medical conditions to be eligible.

  • Cancer

  • Epilepsy

  • Glaucoma

  • Migraines

  • Human immunodeficiency virus

  • A chronic medical condition that causes psychiatric and/or physical dependence

  • A chronic medical condition that causes severe and persistent pain

  • Debilitating psychiatric conditions

  • Chronic medical condition

  • Any other chronic, debilitating or medical condition, as determined by a doctor, that includes but isn't limited to hepatitis C (ALS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), and Crohn’s disease.


You can easily apply online for your Missouri Department of Health medical cannabis card. Before you can begin, there are some requirements.

1) A valid email address

2) A good mindset for 3-4 weeks or the time that works best to get approval quickly

To begin the online application process for a Missouri medical marijuana 420 card, you will need to meet these other requirements:

  • Name, date of birth, and social security number

  • Email address

  • Documents that prove residency include a driver's license, ID card, or a recent utility bill.

  • A physician certification form must be signed by a licensed medical professional. Although it can take up to 30 days to complete, if the patient submits within that timeframe, they will receive their card on time. To be submitted, it must be scanned or photographed.

  • Original government ID card

  • If applicable, parental or legal guardian consent

  • A clear, colored photograph of the patient

  • A statement indicating if the patient receives assistance from Missouri programs for low-income. If yes, which programs. This information is however optional.

  • Declaration indicating if the patient has authority to cultivate cannabis

  • Attestation

  • Signature and date of application

  • $25 for qualified patients

  • $25 for qualified caregivers

  • $100 for patient cultivation

At least 21 years old, caregivers must be able to supervise the care of certified medical marijuana patients. A caregiver can take care of up to three patients, but patients can only have two caretakers. The authorization form must be completed by qualified patients and submitted with the online application.

The card regulations will be followed

Missouri does not allow you to become a medical marijuana patient if you have been convicted of a crime. A prior conviction can result in the patient or caregiver being removed from their status. Missouri law allows patients to purchase up to 4 ounces or the equivalent of dried cannabis every 30 days. Imagine a patient who requires more than the legal limit. They will need to obtain two additional physician certification papers from separate doctors with strong evidence proving that they require more than the legally allowed amount. When they purchase medicine from licensed dispensaries in our state, patients are charged a four percent tax. In a private facility, patients who are licensed to cultivate six mature plants. The department cannot provide information on where and how to buy seeds. Only residents of the state who are eligible for the card can participate in the program.

The pros and cons of a marijuana card

  • Legal protection

An MMJ card is a legal way to get medical marijuana in a state that does not allow it. This can make the difference between being convicted and getting your freedom. Arkansas is our example. They voted for legalization in November. A Missouri medical marijuana card allows you to legally protect yourself as long as you do what the law allows.

  • Lowers your costs

An MMJ card can help you save a lot of money. This is an important benefit for those who have a genuine medical need for cannabis. You can also avoid retail and excise marijuana taxes up to an amazing limit.

  • High potency

When it comes to cannabis consumption, the dosage is crucial. It is necessary to reduce the intensity or mitigate symptoms. MMJ cardholders are permitted to purchase cannabis in higher quantities for those who need it. You can have only 1000mg in recreational cannabis, but you can increase that limit by purchasing a card.

  • Possession limits

MMJ cardholders may have a greater limit than recreational users. As a legal limit, recreational users can only keep 1 ounce of marijuana and 8 grams of cannabis concentrate. On the other hand, cardholders can have a greater amount. You must also be 21 years old to use cannabis recreationally. In medical states, however, you can purchase cannabis up to the age of 18.

  • Limits to cultivating

You can't grow medical marijuana in your own backyard. Some states restrict your ability to grow marijuana if you are located far from the nearest dispensary.
