Missouri Posts Draft Rules for Marijuana Grow Facilities
The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has released more drafts of rules for the state's medical marijuana system.
DHSS has posted draft regulations for marijuana cultivation facilities, dispensaries, manufacturing facilities and medical marijuana establishments.
Five public forums were held throughout the state in February and March. Attendees in Jefferson City, Poplar Bluff, St. Louis, Kansas City and Springfield had an opportunity to speak directly with the DHSS Section for Medical Marijuana Regulation about their concerns and suggestions for the program's rules.
"It was a great opportunity for us to travel the state and hear from parties interested in this program," said Lyndall Fraker, Director of the DHSS Section for Medical Marijuana Regulation. "All feedback we received was considered, and is still being considered, as we continue drafting the rules."
Rules specifically focused on qualified patients and primary caregivers were released in February. Additional drafts of proposed rules addressing other components of the medical marijuana program will be posted online as they are completed, the release said.
