About Ruthie Jayne: Medical Marijuana Concierge
As a former MMJ industry investor, she was a member of the MoCann Trade Association and CPA teams, state officials, vendors, and toured cannabis dispensaries in the “legal” states of Colorado and California.
A wicked advocate for seniors since 2010, Ruthie has eased life’s transitions for over 500 seniors in the St Louis area. After rehabbing from an accident with MMJ in Spring of 2020, the need for an all natural pain relief never became as clear. She finds joy in celebrating victories over pain with her clients, while offering classes ranging from cooking with cannabis to growing and even cannabis travel, hoping to create the life they so deserve.
She has completed coursework at Oaksterdam University in Cannabis Advocacy, studied safety and efficacy of cannabis for pain mitigation, and explored the emerging data demonstrating that cannabinoids may potentially act as either an effective adjudicative treatment or as a substitute for opioid-based medications.
She found that seniors were curious about this opportunity and also learned that as attitudes towards cannabis shift, the fastest-growing group of users is over 50 – and marijuana’s popularity among seniors is beginning to change the American experience of old age.
Seniors’ affinity for marijuana is beginning to ripple across the US healthcare system. A 2016 study found that in states with access to medical marijuana, those using Medicare part D received fewer prescriptions for other drugs to treat depression, anxiety, pain, and other chronic issues. Meanwhile, dispensaries in California and elsewhere cater to older clientele with discounts and shuttle buses.

How do I know if Medical Marijuana is right for me?
The state of Missouri has approved Medical Marijuana for those residents who possess a specific state ID. What’s all the hype? What can cannabis do for me? Do I need a doctor’s prescription? What if my doctor won’t help me? Are there alternatives? Will cannabis help my pain? What about anxiety or insomnia? What are the qualifying conditions? When will the dispensaries open? How do I find them? What do I buy? Who do I trust?
How do I get a Medical Marijuana license in Missouri?
Missouri law requires a referral (not a prescription) from a state-licensed MD or DO. This, along with an application and photo must be submitted.
The process can be a little intimidating, and for someone who hasn’t seen a joint in 40 years, the modern dispensary can be a dizzying experience. Whether or not marijuana helps seniors to alleviate their conditions, many may enjoy a sense of control over their own wellbeing.
