JEFFERSON CITY, MO - The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) will host four additional public forums throughout the state to accept suggestions from the public regarding the formation of rules and regulations for the program. DHSS hosted its first forum in Jefferson City on Feb. 13, and more than 300 people attended.

  • 5-8 p.m., March 6 in Kansas City – University of Missouri – Kansas City in the Atterbury Student Success Center – Pierson Auditorium, 5000 Holmes St.

  • 5-8 p.m., March 7 in Springfield - Ozarks Technical Community College in Lincoln 211, 1001 E. Chestnut Expressway

The forums will be opportunities for interested individuals to leave thoughtful feedback, verbally or written, about what should or should not be included in the medical marijuana program regulations. The scope of the discussion will be limited to suggestions for program regulation.

"The input received at the first forum hosted in Jefferson City was very helpful to us," said Lyndall Fraker, Director of DHSS Section for Medical Marijuana Regulation. "The feedback we received from attendees was that the opportunity to have their voices heard was appreciated, so we have decided to extend these opportunities to other areas throughout the state."

DHSS has now released its first draft of rules. This set of rules is specifically focused on the qualified patient and primary caregiver. Additional drafts of proposed rules addressing other components of the medical marijuana program will be posted online as they are drafted.

DHSS encourages feedback on this draft as well as future drafts as these are not final. Suggestions can be submitted using the online suggestion form

As of Feb. 20, a total of 434 pre-filed facility license application forms and fees totaling $3,128,000 have been received by DHSS.
Of those, 237 are pre-filed application forms for dispensary facilities.

Testimonial: Jan, 2019

"KC Stark and his business planning experience was critical to the successful launch of Wagon Hill Medical Marijuana Dispensary." states former Jackson County Republican Committee Chairman, Mark Anthony Jones, and newly licensed medical marijuana dispensary holder (2019.) "His depth of knowledge allowed Wagon Hill Dispensary to fast-track decision making, rapidly prepare business plans, develop brand strength with networks, and supply an absurd abundance of legal cannabis business standards related to opening and operating a legal cannabis facility."
