A bill that would legalize the possession and personal cultivation of medical cannabis in Missouri was recently filed, and assigned a bill number; House Bill 688. If the measure passes through the legislature, it would be put to a vote of the people in 2014.
“HB 688 would permit patients who have a physician’s certification to cultivate up to three mature plants, along with four immature plants and one ounce of usable marijuana for each mature plant. Conditions for which a physician could certify medical need include multiple sclerosis, cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease, severe nausea, severe pain and severe and persistent muscle spasms or any other serious medical condition.”
In addition, the bill would move cannabis from a schedule 1 drug under state law, to a schedule 2.
