Missouri posts draft rules for medical marijuana dispensaries, grow facilities and more

Late Friday, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services released more drafts of rules for the state’s emerging medical marijuana system.

According to a news release sent around 4:30 p.m., DHSS has posted draft regulations for marijuana cultivation facilities, dispensaries, manufacturing facilities and medical marijuana establishments in general.

Officials emphasized the rules are just drafts and may change. Amendment 2, formally known as Article XIV of the Missouri Constitution, compels DHSS to have all of the medical cannabis program’s rules finalized by June 4.

The rules were posted following five public forums held during February and March in Jefferson City, Poplar Bluff, St. Louis, Kansas City and Springfield. (About 150 people attended the Springfield forum in early March.)

Attendees to the forums had the chance to speak directly with DHSS employees in the division of medical marijuana to share their concerns and suggestions.

In the news release, Lyndall Fraker, director of the DHSS section for medical marijuana regulation, said that all of the feedback from the forums and sent in through the department’s website was and is being considered as the rule-drafting process continues. [Read more at Springfield News-Leader]
