The Missouri Department of Health and Senior will take applications for patient and caregivers on June 28, six days ahead of the July 4 deadline.

Patients and caregivers must visit to apply or to preview the necessary information and forms. At this time, DHSS will accept physician certifications as an attachment to a patient’s application rather than directly from a physician. Certifications cannot be more than 30 days old.

Patient and caregiver registration fees are $25, and patient (in-home) cultivation registration fees are $100.

No medical marijuana facilities will be licensed until early 2020.
