Missouri is not known for being very easy-going when it comes to the law, and unfortunately marijuana growing is no exception. The “Show-Me” state has not decriminalized marijuana, doesn’t have a medical marijuana program and still uses mandatory minimums. You can’t really say that Missouri is, doing any progressive rulings when it comes to Missouri marijuana growing- but would you really expect that from a state whose legal policies have already gained worldwide attention?
Missouri marijuana growing is treated the same as possession. This means, it is considered a misdemeanor to possess up to 35 grams. If you have that much on you, you could do some time in jail, but it’s not the years in jail that other states threaten with. Missouri’s laws, instead, seem to focus primarily on selling. If you are doing anything that makes it seem like you are selling drugs, you could face the most trouble.
Missouri does not have a medical marijuana program, but it does allow the use of Medical CBD for those with intractable epilepsy. The medical CBD program defines the use of twenty ounces of high CBD cannabis extracts with no more than .03 of one percent of THC as legal for patients. The problem is, cannabis with those percentages are hard to find. So many patients soon discover that medical CBD isn’t a reliable solution. The good news is, at least Missouri is finally recognizing the benefits of cannabis.
Missouri also does not have a tax stamp program, unlike many neighboring states. This means that those arrested with marijuana will not have to pay tax in addition to any other charges. Tax stamps are popular among states that have not legalized because governments can make money on the marijuana industry without legalizing it. Missouri has not become a part of that process.
Missouri marijuana growing may be difficult, but it can definitely be done. With the right seeds and the right know – how, you can discretely grow your own marijuana in the Show-Me state.
