Missouri voters have said “Yes”, they want medical marijuana legalized.
Missouri has legalized medical marijuana through the initiative process, with voters approving Amendment 2 this evening. The measure, which was passed with over 65% in support, legalizes the possession and use of marijuana and marijuana products for medical purposes. Those wanting to use marijuana legally will first need to receive a recommendation from a physician.
The measure authorizes medical marijuana dispensaries, which will be allowed to sell marijuana to patients. Amendment 2 places a 4% tax on medical marijuana.
Missouri now joins over 30 other states that have legalized at least some form of medical marijuana.
