Marijuana legalization in Missouri

Is marijuana legal in Missouri?

Marijuana in Missouri is decriminalized and is allowed to be sold and used for medicinal use, after voters passed “Amendment 2” in November 2018. Medical marijuana is regulated by the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services.

Missouri activists are gearing up for a push to put marijuana legalization on the state’s November 2020 ballot. They must submit the required signatures by mid-May 2020.

The full text of the measure is available for Initiative 2020-126, Initiative 2020-127, and Initiative 2020-128.

Lawmakers were under fire in early 2020 for alleged conflicts of interest in rolling out the Medical Marijuana program.
