Tuesday: What The Process Of Legalizing Medical Marijuana In Missouri Will Look Like

13 hours ago

This interview will be on “St. Louis on the Air” at noon Tuesday. This story will be updated after the show. You can listen live.

June 4 marked the first day Missouri posted application forms for patients who want medical marijuana ID cards, which is unprecedented in the state’s history. The application forms are also for would-be marijuana businesses — dispensaries, growers and others. Patients may file applications beginning July 4, and businesses Aug. 3.

On Tuesday’s St. Louis on the Air, St. Louis Public Radio’s Jonathan Ahl will discuss what the legalization of medical marijuana means for Missouri and the process of how physicians prescribe them as dispensaries start opening up.

Joining the discussion will be Rolla Councilman Daniel Jones, who uses marijuana to treat PTSD, and Dr. Mimi Vo, a local physician who is part of the Missouri Medical Cannabis Trade Association.
