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.
