- Notice: Patient/Caregiver & Consumer Authorized Cultivators –
- With the exception of marijuana facilities licensed by the department, it is still unlawful to sell or otherwise profit from the distribution of marijuana plants and products in Missouri. The department reminds patient, caregiver, and consumer cultivation card holders that cultivated marijuana plants and any resulting supply of marijuana is for the exclusive use of the licensed patient, or the non-commercial use of the consumer pursuant to provisions in 19 CSR 100-1.040. Cultivation card holders are not authorized to sell or otherwise profit from the marijuana plants they have cultivated or any products resulting from the cultivated plants. Authorized cultivators found to be in violation may be subject to department administrative penalties including, licensure revocation pursuant to 19 CSR 100-1.040(6)(C), and may be subject to criminal penalties. More information for patient, caregiver and consumer personal cultivation can be found here.
- A qualifying patient may not be authorized for both qualifying patient cultivation and consumer personal cultivation at the same time, pursuant to 19 CSR 100-1.040(5)(C). Individuals that hold existing authorization to cultivate may allow the current license to expire, or forfeit the current license in order to apply for the other type of cultivation authorization. Additional cultivation information is available here. For specific questions or scenarios, please contact the Individual Licensing Unit team at CannabisInfo@health.mo.gov.
