JEFFERSON CITY, MO – The Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) has completed the process of issuing the first round of certifications for medical marijuana transportation facilities. Transportation applications can be submitted at any time. The department will review and approve or deny applications when received from this point forward.

Transportation facilities whose applications are approved have been notified by email to the email addresses of the individual who created the User Account in the Medical Marijuana Registry Portal, the individual listed in the application as the Primary Contact, and at least one other individual identified in the application.

Notifications of application denial have been issued as well. Denial notifications were sent to the individual who created the User Account in the Medical Marijuana Registry Portal. Denials are issued for several reasons, including failure to meet minimum qualifications, failure to return application after notice of rejection or application withdrawal. 

The list of all approved and denied medical marijuana transportation facility applicants can be found on the DHSS Section for Medical Marijuana Regulation website.

Regulations specific to medical marijuana transportation facilities can be found at 19 CSR 30-95.100 of the Missouri Code of State Regulations (p. 30-31).
