Is it legal to possess marijuana now in Missouri?
yes. Possession became legal for all adults age 21 and over on December 8, 2022.

How much can I buy from a legal store?
Once state-licensed stores open, consumers can purchase up to three ounces per day.
Where are the legal stores located?
Missouri’s new marijuana law allows all existing medical marijuana dispensaries to convert their medical licenses into “universal” licenses (medical and licenses for adult use).
There are currently 195 medical dispensaries approved for operation in the state of Missouri. Almost all of them are expected to open their sales floor to all customers 21 and older on February 6.

Can I smoke hashish in public places?
No. Smoking cannabis in public will be punished with a fine of up to $100, but not arrest.
Can I grow cannabis at home?
Yes, but you need a legal permit. Missouri will require home cannabis growers to have a $100 home card, renewable annually. Applications for house cards will be available, by law, no later than January 8, 2023, and the state will begin processing such applications no later than February 8, 2023.
Who regulates legal growers and sellers?
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services will handle regulatory duties.
The amendment imposes a one-time fee of $7,000 for the application for a retail cannabis license. Selected applicants must pay an annual fee of $10,000 per retail facility. The license must be renewed every three years, with a renewal fee of $3,000.
How many stores are allowed in the end?
Initially, in February 2023, there may be up to 195 recreational weed stores open in Missouri. (This is the number of existing medical dispensaries, whose licenses would expand to adult sales if the company so chose.)
The new marijuana law does not contain a strict cap on the number of growing, processing and retail licenses issued by government regulators.
However, there is a minimum number of licenses: The state must issue at least as many full cannabis licenses for adult use as there are to medical marijuana growers/processors/retailers as of December 1, 2022.
What does that actually mean? As of July 2022 there were:
- 191 licensed medical marijuana dispensaries
- 70 licensed medical cannabis therapists
- 49 licensed medical marijuana growers
The initiative allows state regulators to exercise their judgment regarding the number of total licenses, within this legal directive: “The [state regulatory department] Any limit on the number of licensees or certification holders may be raised or relaxed in order to meet the demand for marijuana in the state and to ensure a competitive market while preventing excessive concentration of marijuana facilities within the boundaries of any given local government.”
