  1. Robert

    What is the current status of MedCards for Missouri? Will I be dead before I even get a card? I am literally sick of having to take 50-60 Mgs of Hydrocodone every day! I’m not addicted. I simply cannot tolerate the level of pain I experience daily. Someone please tell me, how much longer I am going to have to wait?

  2. JJ

    Can I transfer my FL medical marijuana card to MO?

  3. Rebecca Shepherd

    I have severe mobility issues have had seventeen surgeries , suffer with chronic pain, and PTSD . Been on an off Opoids since I was in my 30’s. I am not a person affected by Addiction I manage myself accordingly, I do worry about those Pharmaceuticals effect on my liver and kidney’s…So marijuana would indeed be a better alternative. Which My Ortho doctor said half of his patients are already using anyway! IJS

  4. tony gambino

    If it’s legal in DC It should be legal for me anyway I go in the USA.I wrote a song about it .

  5. Jessica L chalcraft

    When does it start

  6. Rob S.

    If a qualifying physician is only permitted to have 3 qualifying patients, won’t that severely limit the availability of qualifying doctors?

    • JLP

      Rob S…..the 3 patients only refers to a qualified Caregiver, not a physician. Anyone can apply to become a caregiver for a MMJ patient. Just means you can buy and/or grow for them.

    • melissa

  7. Kelly

    if you live in a different state can you get a card in the state that is legal?

      Thank you

      Bobbi Frock

  8. Rachel

    IBS should be included since It causes intense spasms that cause extreme pain in the lower left abdomen. Also where is Arthritis/Tendonitis

    • DARR

      Don’t Worry about it. The Doctor will Most likely give it to you. Pain in Various Forms is a Reason to get your Card. It doesn’t have to be that Technical. You’re getting all worked up over nothing. Just Relax. You will need it for your Anxiety it sounds like.

    • medcards

      @Jarret – you are correct however, subsection (j) states, “In the professional judgment of a physician, any other chronic, debilitating or other medical condition…”

      This opens the door for the patient and the doctor to make their own decisions regarding medical marijuana being a treatment option.

  9. Mike B.

    I would be honored to be the very first patient to receive medical marijuana Rec card. (Please read my Rec application) I spent a couple weeks in Colorado earlier this year and the Cannabis helped me tremendously. No comparison to being on Doctor prescribed opioids for chronic pain for approximately 11 years.

    Thank you very much for helping the great people of Missouri that need this medicine!

  10. Hoyt Ray

    so the line is about to form. What Dr. to go to and what he will ask is probably first thing we need to know. I don’t see Chronic pain on this list; why?

    • medcards

      No specified conditions list. If a doctor feels it will benefit, thats all you need.

    • Stefanie Higgins

      Chronic pain IS part of my fibromyalgia condition. Sorry, i thought everyone knew that. Fibromyalgia encompasses many other debilitating ailments as well.
