Get Evaluated

A Joplin Urgent Care medical marijuana physician will review your medical records, perform a physical exam, and approve you for medical cannabis! Starting July 4, 2019, you can apply for an identification card from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS). Once your application is approved and you receive your identification card, you may purchase medical marijuana from a Missouri state-licensed dispensary.


Frequently Asked Questions

Will my registration status be made publicly available?

No. The law prohibits the DHSS, as well as Missouri licensed dispensaries, from making personal identifying information public. Physicians and those employed by dispensaries will be able to verify a patient or caregiver registration.

No. At this time, in order to access medical cannabis in Missouri, you must be a patient in the Missouri medical marijuana program.

Patients will be allowed to grow 6 flowering plants in their home. (It must be an enclosed, locked facility that is equipped with security devices that permit access only to the patient/caregiver.) Patients can purchase up to 4 ounces of dried medical marijuana or equivalent. The law requires one not possess more than a 60-day supply of dried marijuana or equivalent unless permitted with written certification from two independent physicians. The fee for the grower card is $100.

Medical marijuana will be available from retail dispensaries licensed by DHSS. Once the DHSS has completed its dispensary licensing process, dispensary locations will be made available through this site. We will update our Missouri dispensary map as dispensaries begin to open.

How to Download Patient Card

Gun Ownership/Purchase for Cardholders

Can I have a medical marijuana identification card and own and/or purchase guns?

Article XIV of the Missouri Constitution, which authorizes medical use of marijuana in Missouri, does not reference or prohibit the possession or purchase of firearms. However, federal law still may prohibit the possession or purchase of a firearm by individuals who use marijuana, regardless of whether a state has legalized marijuana for medical use. The Department of Health and Senior Services does not regulate the possession or purchase of firearms and therefore cannot say how the federal prohibition will be enforced within Missouri. Specific questions about these federal firearm restrictions should be directed to your attorney or the appropriate law enforcement agency. For more information, go to:
